GUEST,Ballyholme Tune Add: Come by the Hills (64* d) RE: MUS ADD: Come by the hills 01 Aug 02

GUEST,Dale Good to hear that Paddie's old albums are being re-released.

I'm sticking my neck out here but I find it hard to believe that the Clancy's recorded Come By The Hills before Paddie. My understanding is that Gordon Smith wrote the song in Scotland and with his connections to the local folk scene (Corrie Bill Smith was his brother) it seems unlikely that such a good song would not have been recorded by a Scots performer. I still believe that Paddie recorded it first and the Clancy's some time later.

I recall seeing the Clancy's several times in the 60s (from 1965 onwards) and don't remember the song being in their repertoire at that time.
