The Boys Of The Old Brigade Sheet Music And Tin Whistle Notes
written by Pat McGuigan and recorded by The Wolfe Tones. This one is in the key of G and in the youtube video I'm playing a D whistle. The piano letter notes included are the same as the video and are suitable for playing on the recorder or flute. The lyrics and chords of the boys of the old brigade are on site also with yours truly playing the guitar, now if only I could put play the whistle and guitar at the same time. This was never a well known song for other groups besides the Wolfe Tones even though other ballad groups recorded the song including the song writer Paddy McGuigan. The song was a favorite for ballad groups around Ireland and probably sang in every pub in Ireland at some stage.
