Rare Auld Times

Here’s the sheet music for one of my favorite songs: The Rare Auld Times. (Keep scrolling after the third page for some additional lyrics.)

Additional Lyrics:

4. The years have made me bitter, the gargle dims my brain,
'cuse Dublin keeps on changing, and nothing seems the same.
The Pillar and the Met have gone, the Royal long since pulled down.
As the great unyielding concrete, makes a city of my town.
(refrain)

5. Fare the well, sweet Anna Liffey, I can no longer stay,
And watch the new glass cages, that spring up along the Quay.
My mind's too full of memories, too old to hear new chimes,
I'm a part of what was Dublin, in the rare auld times.
(refrain)
