Subject: Yarmouth town and Wexford fishing song
Being greedy and asking for 2 here! Does anyone know the lyrics to Yarmouth town (wont you come down, wont you come down, wont you come down to Yarmouth town)- that's more or less all I remember. The second one is a really old song I have on tape sung, I think, by the Four Folk(?) but it's too crackly to hear the words. It starts 'The red sun goes down over Bally... and the salt... are misty and grey, at home on the mainland our wives and our daughters... Any ideas?
