Thread Name: Lyr Req: My Son in Americay
Subject: RE: a mother's letter to her son in the usa
Kilkelly sounds like a possible fit, but in it the letters are from the father; I wonder if there is another song, from the mother's point of view...? There is the ballad, I think by Tommy Makem, about ireland's four provinces, in which they are allegorically referred to as "four strong sons," with Ireland being the mother..... prob not much help....?

cheers, BK
