Thread Name: Lyr Req: Last Trip Home (Davy Steele, J McCusker)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Last Walk Home
I sing this unaccompanied, and it is probably my most requested song. But you know, I transcribed -- and anglicized a bit -- the words from the Battlefield Band's Friday Harbor, and they do it not only in braid scots with a full electric backup, but they also use a bagpipe on top of the words, at least to the last verse.
And they splice a dance tune into the breaks, Luckenbill, I think it is.
So, if you actually want to hear the words, and I think they're gorgeous, you might want to back down on the accompaniment, or go without, but if you're going for versimilitude, the more noise, the better.
