Subject: Origins: The Country I'm Leaving Behind
I'm looking for some background information about "The Country I'm Leaving Behind". All I could found (including the text) is on this page. Does anybody knows who wrote it and when exactly was the song written, why was the main character leaving Ireland and where was he going to, and is the song ever recorded.
