Irish Songs About Love
Keegan's Waltz

Irish songs about love are part of the folk tradition; here is an old melody with beautiful new lyrics in a courtly style.  Vocal with piano arrangement (in several keys), and lead sheets too.


This song, already beautiful as a piano solo, has been rendered even lovelier by the lyrics written by Matthew Meyers, an American teenager.  



The words talk about a young knight passing beneath a tower window, wherein sits a young woman with dark hair and bright eyes.  His heart is drawn to her even as he sets off for war, and he takes a moment to stop, rest his sword beside a tree, and speak with her for a while.
