Subject: RE: Req: Hidden track song from Christy Moore box set
In work at moment - have the CD somewhere - will listen hopefully tonight if I get a chance.

Dug this up from Christy conversations on different sites as background if any assist.



God Woman title
Graffiti tongue Album 1996

There are a number of hidden tracks in The Box Set Me Bollix Collection. The song you ask about is "The Bord Na Mona Man". It never saw the light of day and some of the lyrics formed the basis of a later song "God Woman" which is on the Graffiti Tongue Album of 1997.

God Woman
This is a response to the difficulty I have with the deity always being
lumbered with gender. We've always been told that God is Him and I just
don't accept that. I'm saying that just for a day let God be a she. For me
God is an It, but that would be offensive. So today let it be God WOMAN.
Maybe it'll cause somebody to think.
