Donovan was another one of my musical obsessions back in the day. One of my favorites was the one I called “Down, Down, Down” but which was actually called “Celtic Rock.”
Donovan “Celtic Rock” Lyrics
Down in the wood in the murky gloom
Trolls go marching two by two
Down through the cave and the mouth of doom
Down, down, down in the gloom, gloom, gloom
Hey, kala ho, kala ho la jai
Who should come by the mountain way
Young Finn Hanley a lute he play
Clothed in scarlet livery
All wide eyed in the bright noon day
Tiree, tiraloo, tiraloo I ay
And here he is singing it. Just a picture of the album, so don’t worry that it’s so small.
