Piping Tim Every person in the nation Or of great or humble station Holds in highest estimation Piping Tim of Galway Loudly he can play or low He can move you fast or slow Touch your hearts or stir your toe Piping Tim of Galway When the wedding bells are ringing His the breath to lead the singing Then in jigs the folks go swinging What a splendid piper He will blow from eve to mourn Counting sleep a thing of scorn Old is he but not outworn Know you such a piper? When he walks the highways pealing `Round his head the birds come wheeling Tim has carols worth the stealing Piping Tim of Galway Thrush and Linnet, finch and lark To each other twitter `Hark' Soon they sing from light to dark Pipings learnt in Galway as sung by Jan Christensen tune: Rakes of Mallow. Note: I heard it as Piping Tom.RG BL
