Joel Simpson joined me for The Irish Pub Song Of The Day. I love when Joel plays guitar while I am playing frailing banjo.

This is such a fun song and I hope you play along!

Hills Of Connemara (PDF)


[G]Gather up the pots and the [C]old tin [G]can

The mash, the corn, the [D7]barley and the bran

[G]Run like the devil from the [C]Excise [G]man

Keep the smoke from rising [D7]Bar[G]ney.

Swing to the left and swing to the right.
The Excise men will dance all night.
Drinking up the tay till the broad daylight
In the hills of Connemara.

A gallon for the butcher, a quart for Tom,
A bottle for poor old Father Tom
To help the poor old dear along
In the hills of Connemara.

Stand your ground, it is too late
The Excise men are at the gate
Glory be to Paddy, but they’re drinking it nate.
In the hills of Connemara.
