Anybody got music for Come On Eileen by Dexy's Midnight Runners from the 1980s ? I have searched online and found guitar chords , PVG (which only gives the voice melody) and even Harmonica TAB !!!

I read the first few bars are from an old folk song called Thomas Moore's "Believe Me, if All Those Endearing Young Charms", but that hasn't helped me yet.

I am a beginner and cant grasp playing 'by ear' yet. Any help would be gratefully received.

btw - it would make a great fiddlerman group project.

I poked around a bit and found a book with the music in it. Not free, but perhaps searching for a used copy might get you closer to your goal.

Pagdorf, I'd love to learn that song too; one of my 80s favs; please let us know what you find out!

@ ftufc

So far I have the intro from :

http://violinsheetmusic.org/ti.....ng-charms/

(its a really old folk song so its not copyrighted music)

Its the first 4 and a half bars then Dexy's Midnight Runners kick in with their violin riff (the bit I'm trying to get).
