Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Arthur McBride (from Paul Brady)
Nice story,but untrue.Brady first came across this song in his brief association with the band Planxty,who recorded a definitive version of their own. Andy Irvine,who also played with Planxty,was one to go into historical archives for new songs,which is how Planxty learned and recorded it first in 1972.
