From: GUEST,mryan

I am looking for some help with regard to a song that I heard in a local pub. I believe the title was Cavin Town or soemthing like that, but I am not certain. I do know that the singer mentioned the song was written by a man from Valdosta and won some type of folk music award in Ireland, which is somewhat ironic.

If this is enough information for anyone to get me a clue, that would be great. If you also happen to know the lyrics, the writer's name, or where I might be able to find a recording of it, that would be very much appreciated.

It could be My Cavan Girl by thom Moore of Pumkinhead. As I walk the road from Killashandra, weary I sit down. For it's twelve long miles around the lake to get to cavan town. etc

I believe the song was entered in a song festival in Cavan, and won.

If it was entered in a competition in Cavan I bet ther was no prize given. (Cavan is Ireland's answer to Aberdeen).
