Thread Name: Lyr Req: Lon Dubh (from Julie Fowlis)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Lon Dubh (from Julie Fowlis)
The song is called LON DUBH (BLACKBIRD) and appears on Julie Fowlis' 3-CD album "Cuilidh" (2007) and her "Live at Perthshire Amber" (2011).
The song seems to be a translation into Scots Gaelic of the Beatles' song BLACKBIRD.
(BLACKBIRD was officially credited to Lennon/McCartney but was written by Paul McCartney, and performed as a solo by McCartney on the Beatles' "white album.")
