DigiTrad: 100,000 UNEMPLOYED

100,000 UNEMPLOYED
(Matt McGinn)
( Tune : Hundred Pipers )


Three cheers for the red and the white and the blue,
Three cheers for the red and the white and the blue,
And we'll hoist the flag above the "broo",
Three cheers for the red and the white and the blue.

Chorus :
Wi' a hundred thousand umemployed,
Wi' a hundred thousand unemployed,
We surely should be overjoyed
Wi' a hundred thousand unemployed.

We're a' goin' on the N.A.B.,
We're a' goin' on the N.A.B.,
So praise the Lord that we are free,
We're a' goin' on the N.A.B.

We'll beat the English and a' and a',
We'll beat the English and a' and a',
For sure they'll no have as many, at a',
We'll beat the English and a' and a'.


Footnote : One of the most entertaining singer/songwriters on the
Scottish Folk circuit was Matt McGinn (
1928-1977 ). Oliver Brown winner and fellow folksinger Jimmie
Macgregor wrote of Matt - ' To those that
knew him Matt McGinn's untimely death brought a great sense of
loss, the feeling that never again would we meet such a wonderful
combination of vibrancy and compassion. But the rare spirit that
was McGinn will never die, for it lives on in his songs.'
