I don't know where the Skankill Road is -- it could as easily be in the UK as in upstate New York. But people in the UK don't use the expression "get his goat" very much, do they? The combination of this with the improper sentence structure leads one to believe the verse is Yank, and therefore "bloody" i s implied literally, rather than vulgarly, but of course that makes no sense at all. Sigh.

One of histories great Lost Causes is trying to make sense out of something that is inherently non-sensical.
