The Chieftains

The Chieftains is a traditional Irish band formed in Dublin in November 1962, by Paddy Moloney, Sean Potts and Michael Tubridy. The band had their first rehearsals at Moloney's house, with Tubridy, Martin Fay and David Fallon. Their sound, which is almost entirely instrumental and largely built around uilleann pipes, has become synonymous with traditional Irish music and they are regarded as having helped popularise Irish music across the world. more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Come sit by my side little darlin' 
Come lay your cool hand on my brow
And promise me that you will 
Never be nobody's darlin' but mine

Be nobody's darlin' but mine 
Love be honest be faithful be kind
And promise me that you will 
Never be nobody's darlin' but mine

You're as sweet as the flowers of springtime
You're as pure as the dew from the rose
I had rather be somebody's darlin'
Than a poor boy that nobody knows

Be nobody's darlin' but mine love
