T:The Bearded Fiddler
C:Ed Reavy
Z:Joe Reavy
N:Farley was a great tramp fiddler who roamed through Monaghan and 
N:Cavan on fair days. His daughter sold the family wares as he played
N:to the delight of their customers. Ed recalled one day that Farley 
N:played so beautifully that the daughter threw her arms around him 
N:in a burst of spontaneous joy. Ed never forgot the wholesome feelings 
N:expressed there, nor did he fail to recognize the life-warming
N:secrets shared by those who love the music of Ireland.
