Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Jamie Raeburn's Farewell
Hi Im just about to post our band's version of this. Will post the link when I've finished the Youtube video. Maybe 1-2 hours time. Our band was called Shanakie and the song is circa 1994. I digitised all of our old songs off an old tape casette and putting them of Youtube progressively. This is an extremely moving song and recounts the sad tale of transportation to Botany Bay for a petty theft of which Jamie Raeburn is reportedly innocent. Its extremely sad so no wonder it was so popular in Scotland.
