Shanti Lyr Req: Blackbird of Sweet Avondale (53* d) RE: New Member, Old Lyrics 29 Jul 00 win the prize (have no idea what it is)...

On 7/26, you sent me the lyrics to BLACKBIRD OF SWEET AVONDALE and you had the last line of that tricky verse as "to Dublin took wing." At least the way Silly Wizard (Andy Stewart) sang it...that's exactly right...and it makes more sense than the alternative, "to Dublin to Queens."

I just re-listened (VERY CAREFULLY) to the CD with that song, and remembering how AS sounded when I saw him perform, with his lovely Scottish accent, that is just the what he is saying.
