Saint Patrick’s Day: One Irish Rover

Lá Fhéile Pádraig sona duit.

It came as news to me today that there are now (unofficial) Van Morrison clips on YouTube again. Perhaps only for a time, although the one below has been there for five months. It’s an acoustic duet with Bob Dylan on Van’s song, One Irish Rover. Done for a British documentary show in the 1980s, it’s very rough, but has a certain sweet quality. Only the audio is included here.

Tell me you see the light
Tell me you know me
Make it come out alright
And wrap it in glory
For one Irish rover
