Subject: RE: Tune Req: The Wexford Lovers
In the audio, the first line of Verse 2 is pronounced "Wexford, near to Tyrone" - with the latter pronounced "Try-own". interesting. Assuming the Wexford makes any sense, the second may be "Taghmon", though this is normally pronounced with an "un" sound.
Paddy Berry, author of two excellent books of Wexford songs, is not familiar with this one, as far as I know.
