Thread Name: Origin: Kerry Recruit (nonsense chorus)
Subject: RE: BS: Kerry Recruit Chorus
In fact, none of the Bodleian broadside versions have a chorus - wonder when it got attached? Also, they include a quite different song to the air of "An Spailpín Fánach" and called "The Kerry Recruit or The Spalpeen Fawnagh" or similar. I've never heard it sung.
