Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Donal Og
I'm glad I finally have lyrics for this. My first mudcat search turned up nothing. I found this thread through a Google link. I have only heard Roy Williamson's version up to now but I will be searching for others. It's a beautiful song. I love Roy's rendition, even though it makes me terribly sad. It is on The Long Journey South compiled by his widow after his death, from his home studio tapes. It sounds mournful and passionate, almost like a lament, as if he is aware that his life is ending.
