Subject: Origins of song: Bonnywood Green
Hello, just wanted to know apart from the obvious... about the song, Bonnywood green.

Like, where it originates from, who wrote it, and whats the background...

It mentions both the Wars in Africa, and then the First World war, but what else?

I know the Irish soldier goes to war, and then regrets it, as he dies and never see's his true queen (his lover) again.

I have six verses for the song, are there any more?



Anything else... any info pleas
