Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Ar Erin + Erin go Macree
Hi not sure how mudcat threads work but I chose this one - Erin gra mo chroi means Ireland love of my heart and is a lament for emigrants from Ireland for their own native land. When I was out doing my half marathon today to Eastbourne today getting sunburnt on my face I was singing this song while running on the seashore then I started wondering which seashore was the boy or girl on gazing at the scenes of New York ? Anyone know. By the way Ive heard lots of versions and many variants out there.
