Score of The Barley Mow



This is a clean drinking song made famous by The Dubliners in the 1960's which was often sung in the Hunters Lodge Inn on Mendip if Ben was in the room clearing glasses. You need to be fairly sober to sing it properly so it had to be sung early.

Now here's good luck to the pint pot good luck to the barley mow.
Jolly good luck to the pint pot good luck to the barley mow,
Here's the pint pot, half a pint, gill pot, half a gill, pitcherkin,
Landlady bring a drop more, now here's good luck, good luck, good luck to the barley mow.

Now here's good luck to the quart pot good luck to the barley mow.
Jolly good luck to the quart pot good luck to the barley mow,
Here's the quart pot, pint pot, half a pint, gill pot, half a gill, picherkin,
Landlady bring a drop more, well here's good luck, good luck, good luck to the barley mow.

The verses get longer each time by adding the following one at a time so the last verse is:

Heres good luck to the Hunters (or whatever pub you are in), good luck to the barly mow,
Jolly good luck to the Hunters, good luck to the barley mow,
Here's the Hunters, the landlord, the landlady, brewer, the barrel, the half barrel,
Gallon, the half gallon, quart pot, pint pot, half a pint, gill pot, half a gill, pitcherkin,
Landlady bring a drop more, well here's good luck. good luck, good luck to the barley mow.
