Wolfgang, these are the lines of the sixth verse; But the clatter of tractors, pollution and all,
has crippled the copail and sad was his fall,
while in far away OPEC we richly endow,
not counting the value of horses and plough. An explanation; 'copaill' is Irish Gaelic for 'horse'. The reference to OPEC concerns the new reliance on oil rather than the old use of horses. The song is a lament to the old ways.
