Thread Name: Chords & Lyrics: [was OK OK I finaly...]
Subject: RE: Chords & Lyrics: [was OK OK I finaly...]
A new song, based on real peoples' experiences, written about the human price of the Troubles in Northern Ireland (hopefully enough time has passed so's it'll not provoke just knee-jerk reations) has been uploaded to the Myspace player with chords & lyrics in the blog. It's one of my few attempts to write within the tradition.
It's called Johnny Why Did Ye Do It? ("johnny" was chosen because the irony of the two songs "When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again" and "Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye" - same tune, one pro the other anti war).
Any and all feedback is appreciated.
