GUEST,hilary Lyr Req: The Streets of Derry (Bothy Band) (11) The first time he went to climb the 22 May 01

Hello all,

Can anyone help me identify a lovely song I rememmber from many years ago - just fragments I'm afraid.

It was on a commercial recording , I'm 99% sure it's Irish. It's slow, sad but powerful song about a man about to be hanged....

' The first time he went to climb the ladder, his blooming face began to pale (gaelic bit)....

' More like a commanding officer than a man about to die.'

Unfortunately that's about all I can remember !

Fingers crossed, Hilary.
