This is what too much The Dubliners and Flogging Molly will do to you! ;)

Lyrics:
The night was cold and bitter
He was looking for an inn
When the devil shined before him
Showing off an awful grin

The demon spake "You're frozen"
And he nodded to the beast
"A fee so small" the dark one said
"Can make your life a feast"

Chorus:
Come within these walls of mine
Before the frost thee bite
Grab yourself a bottle of wine
And drink it with delight

Come within these walls of mine
Before the frost thee bite
At me table you will dine
Get yourself another pint


Well the young man said "don't bother
Soon I'll find an inn
Because your home and castle
Is built on wicked sin"

The Devil looked offended
As the offer was denied
But still he opened up the door
And invited him inside

Chorus

The demon kept on preaching
"I can make you whole"
"And all I ask of you, good sir
Is your immortal soul"

The dark one asked "Are you not tempted?"
He said "Not the least!"
For little did the devil know
the man talking was a priest

Chorus

REVIEW BY mfe (02/08/2005)

I love a good celtic/gaelic ditty, and this one does the job well. Makke has taken a SID with promise and delivered with a somewhat original little song that I could hear being sung in a tavern or two.



I was a little disappointed with some of the transitions, and I was dying to hear an authentic fiddle in there somewhere take the main theme and do something marvelous with it; I feel the piece lacks something as a result, and the ending doesn't feel quite right, but that's just my personal take on the matter.



A good piece, to be sure :-)

6 Dan shouts: Outstanding, Makke is one of the few remixers who constantly turn out quality and original pieces.... More please
