Re: The post above about the Geordie Hanna song "Erin's Lovely Home:

"My father, he being a farmer reared to industry
He had four sons, two men who'd grown, and lovely daughters three".

I have a recording of Geordie singing this song and the line sounds more like " he had four sons to manhood grown" - it makes a bit more sense to me.

Geordie only sings these three verses but I've always felt there must be a few more verses to this great song, but I've never been able to find any.

Anyone out there with any ideas on this?
