GRMA, Peter, Fergie, and Beachcomber. And nice to see your presence, Martin. I'm sure you would have set me straight, too.

Obviously, I had totally misinterpreted the point of view of that verse, thinking that it was the brothers who were doing the "searching." The lyrics are even more dense that I'd thought!

The more I think about it, the more I realize that Christy has successfully reflected the old style of Irish song, full of images and emotion but very thin on the actual story narration.
