The internationally renowned Irish tenor John McCormack was one of the first people to record The Wearing of the Green.

Lyrics and chords

This is his version from the early 20th century.

The Wearing of the Green was one of the most popular songs at concerts by the Irish rebel band The Wolfe Tones. This is their version.

The Serbian band The Orthodox Celts show the international appeal of the song with this fine version.

The Wakes produced a high temp version in their own inimitable style.

For a much slower, more melodic arrangement try The Molloy Sisters.
