12. Seven Drunken Nights

sevendrunkennights

Seven Drunken Nights was a #1 hit in Ireland and a #7 hit in the UK back in 1967 when The Dubliners released their version. The song itself hails back to the 1700's from Scotland originally.

Technically there are seven verses to this song but on the single release, these last two verses would not have received any airplay. They are as follows ... They are : "As I went home on Saturday night as drunk as drunk could be, I saw two hands upon her breasts where my old hands should be, well I called me wife and said to her will you kindly tell to me, who owns them hands upon your breasts where my old hands should be ah you're drunk you're drunk you silly old fool and still you cannot see, That's a lovely nightgown me mother sent to me, Well it's many a day I travelled, a hundred miles or more, but fingers on a night gown sure I never saw before".

Sunday night has "a thing in her thing where my old thing should be" which the wife claims is a "tin whistle me mother sent to me" and it finishes "but hair on a tin whistle sure I never saw before".

You'll find this track on their album a Drop Of The Hard Stuff.

14. The Foggy Dew

thefoggydew

The Foggy Dew has been used as a title in several songs, but this particular song is making reference to the April 1916 Irish republican uprising against Irish soldiers fighting for the British instead of for an independent Ireland.

Canon Charles O’Neill was a priest from Portglenone, County Antrim (1887–1963) and wrote this song sometime after the first world war. He reflected that it would have been better for the 200,000 plus Irishmen who fought for Britain to instead, have stayed home and fought for Irish independence.

This song can be found on their Live album from 1997 entitled Alive Alive-O.
