Subject: Lyr Req: Brocky Boys
I am sure that my spelling is wrong - but that is how we might spell it today ....
My friends from Houston, Constant Billy do a lovely version of this song ... I cannot get it out my head. Trouble is, I can;t find it anywhere!!
The song tells a tale of woe; the local boys are lamenting because the Brocky Boys - singers, dancers, or some sort of entertainer troup - come into town and visit, and all the local girls fall for them.
The song has a lovely melody ... Does anyone know the song? Can anyone tell me where I can find out more about the song? Lyrics, history, etc?
