Madeira M'Dear (From At the Drop of a Hat) Recorded by The Limel
To Whom It May Concern:
I have been searching the internet for several months trying to find the GUITAR CHORDS for a song composed by the
British writing team of "Michael Flanders & Donald Swann." The titled of the song is "Have Some Madeira M'Dear."
The song is from Flanders & Swann's musical review "At The Drop Of A Hat" which I believe dates from the mid-fifities.
The only performance of the song I have ever heard was on a recording by the folk trio "The Limeliters." The Album
the song was featured on was entitled "Tonight - In Person, The Limeliters (Live)" On that album, the title of the song
was listed as "Maderia M'Dear (From At the Drop of a Hat)." That album dated from the early 60s. It is the guitar chords
and their placement relative to the lyrics that the Limeliters used on that recording that I am in search of. FYI - I have
found the lyrics on several sights but none have included the guitar chords. Many thanks to anyone out there in cyber
land who can help me with my quest for both the lyrics and the guitar chords to this song.
Regards, Mike Smith
