Quite so; it can be found through the "Digitrad and Forum Search" on the main Forum page. You don't need to know the title; a search for she wore no jewels, for example, will find it straight away.

There is also a discussion of the song, begun in 1998 and revived a couple of months ago: Anybody know 'Galway Shawl'?

I've heard it sung 'No shoes nor stockings on her feet at all.' A one off?

nice little parody of same!

She wore some jewels and lots of diamonds
But as for clothing she had bugger all,
But a silky G-string with tassels on it
Leather jackboots, and a rubber shawl

Jim Magean reckoned any Irish song with "linnet" in it implied the "linnet" was a republican sympathiser.

FWIW

I always imagine the Rev. Ian Paisley singing this:
No jewels--
No costly diamonds--
No paint nor powder--
No surrender!!

I've heard it with "no shoes or stockings" often enough.

And here's a verse about a Green Linnet from William Wordsworth:

One have I marked, the happiest guest
In all this covert of the blest:
Hail to Thee, far above the rest
In joy of voice and pinion!
Thou, Linnet! in thy green array,
Presiding Spirit here today,
Dost lead the revels of the May;
And this is thy dominion.

I've never come across that, Mr Red, but I know an irish traditional song called the Green Linnet, where the linnet refers to Napoleon Bonaparte....

Well I claim no more than repeating Jim's words but we could quiz him.

I thinks there's an earlier Jacobite version too, where the Linnet is the King Over the Water.
