Thread Name: Lyr ADD: The Wind That Shakes the Barley
Subject: RE: Origins: The Wind That Shakes the Barley
I have a memory of my father singing a version of this song. it went ...."There's music in my heart all day....I hear it late and early......It comes from the fields and far away.....The wind that shakes the barley..?
Does anybody know of this version? It was sung with gusto , almost a march time, I remember. I have never heard a recording that sounded like it (Don't get me wrong , Dad wasn't a bad singer)
He also used to sing "Orow, shea doh vah awalya" (phonetic) which is also heard on the sound track of the film "The Wind that Shakes the Barley".
