Thread Name: Lyr Req: There's the Day (Cathal McConnell)
Subject: 'There's the day' - Cathal McConnell
Can anyone help with interpreting a lyric, please? It's "There's the day", as sung by Cathal McConnell on his wonderful new album "Long Expectant Comes at Last" (on Compass Records). I find his accent on this track to be rather thick, and in particular I'm puzzled by the first verse, third line. Rather than put ideas into anyone's head by saying what I _think_ Mr. McConnell sings, could you mail me with what you believe the verse to be if you're reasonably sure? Many thanks. Cathal got the words from Kevin Mitchell from Derry, who in turn got them from John Brennan from Newcastle, but I've not heard any other version than Cathal's.
