Thread Name: Origins: And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda
Subject: RE: LYR:'The Band played Waltzing Matilda'
I have 3 versions of this yar song...the aforementioned Tommy Makim, Joan Baez (on Ring Them Bells) which is a sweet lyrical version, contrasting well with the words, and my personal favorite by the POGUES. My son, then a collitch kid, came home with that CD. At the time I came home he was playing the JESSE JAMES track. Imagine his dismay when old pater actually liked that track and several others. That particular CD is replete with folk-punk rock-Celtic arrangements. Anyway, their BAND is my fav.
