DT Lyrics:





Subject: Finest Young Men

This question is from an old Irish singer at the sing last night. He heard this verse from a drunk who passed out after the first verse and Pat had beentrying to find the rest of the song ever since:

My love was one of the finest young men
That nature formed or the sun shone on
And how to free him I do not know
For he got his sentence - for to be hung
And as he walked down the streets of Dublin
I'm sure he walked them most manfully
He was more like the commanding officer
Than a boy to die on the gallows tree.

Susan

Sounds like a song usually known as "The Streets of Derry". Don't think its in the DT. Did it come up before? I'll check.

Regards

thanx Martin, but neither [streets of dublin] nor [streets of derry] come up with anything. If you have Streets of Derry, please post it.
