From: McGrath of Harlow
This came up in a LyrReq thread fro Mrs McGrath - so I thought I'd repost it here, since it might get missed there by everyone who assume sthey know Mrs McGrath already. (Family loyalty; and in memory of Alex as well)
Here's a version of Mrs McGrath that Alex Campbell made up in 1961:
"On this tour the tune of Mrs McGrath was in my mind the whole time, but the only thing I could remember was that he got his two fine legs blown off by a cannonball. I made up this parody."
Mrs McGrath (acc Bottle of Guinness or unacc.
Mrs McGrath tae the sarjeant said:
The sarjeant said to Mrs McGrath
"Goodbye my son, so brave and bold
A year's gone by and Ted's come back,
"Oh mither dear I felt so queer,
"An now I've been rehabilitated
(From Frae Glesca Toon, the songs and stories of Alex Campbell)
