Thread Name: Lyr ADD: The Wind That Shakes the Barley
Subject: RE: Tune Req: looking for words to 'wind that sha
Except, of course, that song #1 -as linked to by Sean M. and later quoted by Sorcha- was called The Wind That Shakes The Barley long before Solas were even thought of! You need "barley" for the rhyme. WIND THAT SHAKES THE CORN, which is also on the DT, here, looks on the face of it like a later re-write of Robert Dwyer Joyce's song; does anyone have any definitive information on that? As Sorcha said, the reel of the same name is not related.
