Thread Name: Whiskey in the Jar - Irish? Appalachian?
Subject: RE: Whiskey in the Jar - Irish? Appalachian?
Just tiptoeing in your passionate debate, but it occurs that I found the lyrics of this song to-day, after having heard this song for the first time 40 years ago, in 1964. This song impressed me a bit at the time 'cause of its melody and rythm, as it was performed. And this song which was on a disque vinyle 33 t called "Western Memories" was entitled "Gilgara Mountain".
So? Irish? Appalachian?
Had a good afternoon from France, on the eve of "Bastille Day".
