Chieftains & Stones on the Rocky Road...

The Rolling Stones are to team up with Irish band The Chieftains on a version of on The Rocky Road to Dublin.

The collaboration came about as The Chieftains recorded a new star studded album to celebrate 40 years in the music business.

The Chieftains are however not happy as a rival record label have released another album called The Best of the Chieftains using songs the band recorded nearly 30 years ago.

Paddy Moloney of the band commented, "They piggyback anything we do this crowd. I can't stop them. I tell you it pissed me off. They do this to us every time we bring out an album. It's nothing I that I had a hand in putting together. That's all I can say about it. "

The Chieftains release the album world wide on March 4th on the RCA label.

As well as the Rolling Stones the band are also joined on the album by Sting, Art Garfunkel, Elvis Costello, The Corrs, Van Morrision, Sinead O'Connor and Joni Mitchell.

Here are the lyrics to the song, imagine Jagger belting this one out with his swinging hips!!


In the merry month of May from me home I started
Left the girls of Tuam sad and broken hearted
Saluted father dear, then kissed me darlin' mother
Then drank a pint of beer me tears and grief to smother
Off to reap the corn, leave where I was born,
I cut a stout blackthorn to banish ghost and goblin
A brand new pair of brogues, rattlin o'er the bogs
And frightenin' all the dogs on the rock road to Dublin.

One, two, three, four, five
Hunt the hare and turn her
Down the rocky road, another way to Dublin
Whack fol-laddie-roll!

In Mullingar that night I rested limbs so weary
Started by daylight next mornin' light and early
Took a drop of the pure to keep me heart from sinkin'
That's an Irishman's cure whene'r he's on for drinkin'
To see the lassies smile, laughin' all the while,
At me daring style, would set your heart a bubblin'
Asked if was I hired, the wages I required,
Till I was almost tired on the rocky road to Dublin.


In Dublin next arrived, I thought it such a pity
To be so soon deprived a view of that fine city
When I took a stroll all amoung the quality
My bundle it was stole from that neat locality
Something crossed me mind, when I looked behind
No bundle could I find upon me stick a-wobblin'
Enquirein' for the rogue, they said me Connacht brogue
Wasn't much in vogue on the rock road to Dublin.


The boys of Liverpool, when we safely landed,
Called meself a fool, I could no longer stand it,
Me blood began to boil, for all I was a losin',
Poor old Erin's Isle they began abusin'
"Hurrah, me Soul!" says I, shillelagh I let fly
Some Galway boys came by and saw I was a hobbelin'
With a loud "Hurray" they joined in the affray
And quickly cleared the way for the rocky road to Dublin!
