This has GOT to be in here somewhere, but I'm damned if I can find it. Tried various permutations - what is up with the search?

Help, please!

SC:

I'd need to check some sources - but I'm sure the first phrase is "shout and bawl!"

The second phrase "with nothing.." is as in Keenedy, mentioned by Malcolm in the other thread.

I think that the late Paddy Harkin from Derry used to sing "the hedges i have often stripped, and left them bare of rods and switches"
