X: 3 T:Never Was Piping So Gay R:reel C:Ed Reavy S:The Collected Compositions of Ed Reavy M:2/4 L:1/8 Z:Joe Reavy N:Never Was Piping So Gay. The concluding line N:of O'Driscoll's refrain in Yeats' poem, the N:Host of the air. O'Driscoll dreamed that N:his wife Bridget was taken by the Host N:as he was playing harmlessly at cards with N:"the merry old men." When O'Driscoll N:awoke from his dream,all that remained of the N:dream was the strange unearthly sound of a pipe N:piping away in the distant air- N:"And never was piping so sad, And N:never was piping so gay."
