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.

I am sorry there is no video to accompany this page... I'm hoping Matthew - or someone! - will make one and place it on Youtube for others to enjoy.

Thanks, Matthew, for your song lyrics, which enable us to sing this beautiful Irish melody, and carry us back in imagination to another time!
