By this time [June 1967], Johnny [Moynihan] and myself were hooked into Sweeney's Men and the only possible replacement, apart from Paul Brady, who was unavailable in The Johnstons, was Terry Woods and his twelve string guitar.

Sweeney's [Men] was now a going concern and we made another single [November 1967]. The Waxie's Dargle was a Dublin song with only a couple of verses but we augmented it with a chorus:

What are ya havin'? Will ya have a pint?
I'll have a pint with you, sir
And if one of youse doesn't order soon
We'll be thrown out of the boozer

It went to number two.
