Thread Name: St Patrick's Day Songs ?
Subject: RE: St Patrick's Day Songs ?
Hrothgar - She may be Crazy, but I'm the one who listed Acres of Clams - it's to the tune of Rosin the Beau, which has American origins (at least according to printing records) but Irish associations, and perhaps Irish roots for the tune... We're doing the Old Settler's Song, not the Charlie King one, so it fits (without sitting on the suitcase too heavily) in with the Irish-American-immigration theme. Get it?
