Alba, you were right enough about Green Fields of France. It was originally called No Man's Land, and Bogle would explain the reason why; ( double meaning; land between the trenches and the central point of the song that all those boys never got to be men). However when he started to make money out of the Clancy Brothers reworking of the song which they called Green Fields of France and he has since made it quite clear when introducing it on stage that he is hapy with the new name.
Back to favourite lines:
You come home late you come home early,
You come on big when you're feeling small.
You come home straight, you come home curly,
Sometimes you don't come home at all.
You curl around me like a fern in the spring
Your eyes look from a different face
they've seeen that much, that soon
Your cheeks too cold too pale to shine
like an old and waning moon.
