Christy Moore - Little Mother Lyrics

Hey, Little Mother, what's in your bag?
Chocolates and sweets

Hey, Mr. Postman, what's in your bag?
A note from your beloved

Hey, Mr. Tailor, what's in your bag?
The finest wedding dress

Hey, Mr. Harvester, what's in your bag?
Solitude and death

    Only she is from New York State, not Canada


    Yup. Interesting mistake there, on Christys' part.

  3. chriscboland

    I marginally prefer this to Natalie Merchant's version but I don't think it's the best song I've heard from either of them.

  4. harvey blackton

    absolute SHITE ye fucked it

  5. Steven Boyle

    I don't know how I got here.. But I like it.

  6. Rodger Webb

    What does this bloke bring to the song?

    Maurice Higney




    Rosa Lucia

    @@Martin Blumrich I'm not a huge fan of this version but note that Merchant plays it in 3/4 too.

    A lot more talent than most, you couldn't lace his boots as they say here in Ireland. .

    Charlie Tierney

    Rodger Webb, Christy Moore is a national treasure here in Ireland, a talented musician, singer and songwriter, he can also cover versions of other songs and often make them better than the original, hes a poet and a rebel with a thousand causes, but you would know that already if you were Irish.

  7. Justin Cooper

    Excellent cover

    Christie, Natalie Merchant is a native New Yorker, Natalie McMaster is a Canadian.  I am sure Jamestown, New York is very proud of Natalie & The Maniacs and would fight off any attempt by Canada to claim her, although they are very close neighbors.


    As a Canadian, I offer you Bieber in return for Natalie :-)
