Irish Rover - Irish Traditonal Song

Irish Rover: New YouTube Video

The Irish Rover- a funny, traditional Irish song about going to sea, and the difficulties therein. Not so much a sea shanty, but a tale popular in the 1910s around the large Irish national population in and around New York City.

The song tells the story of a young man who has signed as crew aboard the Irish Rover, and whose dream of riches in America is dashed by a nautical mishap. So, strap in, ring your mates, invite over your sailor friends, pop open some cold ones, and enjoy this old Irish song of the sea.
