When hearing the ballad of Ronnie Drew performed on some late nite show I was inspired to write a song for the man myself so here is a quick take I recorded in the rough so as not to forget it.
Gerry/Hobbit
Normally I would post this video on my flat mates page with the other Irish music,

but he is away at the moment and I have forgotten the password etc..

WORDS
Ronnie Drew the Legend
Now Ronnie your a legend
you're the man you're the man
shared so many songs
in so many lands
I'd always hoped
one day that I would meet you

must feel so proud
must feel so grand
having lived such a life
having dealt such a hand
may fond memories from the people
always greet you

CHR
Perhaps on a future day
in the Tír na nÓg I may meet you
and have the honour of sitting down and having a jam
cos your Ronnie your the legend
you're the man you're the man
shared so many songs
in so many lands
I'd always hoped one day that I might meet you


You inspired so many
yourself and your friends
making musical history
winning friend after friend
your memory shall always be in our history
each song delivered in the rough and the raw
working class passion telling the score
you were there when
we did need you


CHR
Perhaps on a future day
in the Tír na nÓg I may meet you
and have the honour of sitting down and having a jam
cos your Ronnie your the legend
you're the man you're the man
I'd always hoped one day that I would meet you
I'd always hoped one day that I would meet you
