Thread Name: Lyr Req: Willie Macnamara (Matt McGinn)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Matt McGinn Songs
I know very little about his songs, but I understand he specialized in humorous songs and parodies, which is a plus in my book. I once heard that "The Rolling Hills of the Border" was the first serious song that Matt wrote--and then he was chagrined to find that John Roberts and Tony Barrand had turned it into "The Rolling Mills of New Jersey". I suppose turnabout's fair play...but does anyone know if there's any truth to that?
