weerover Lyr Add: William Wallace (Jim McLean) (10) RE: Lyr Add: William Wallace (Jim McLean) 29 Jun 07

Jim, it is an Irish song, uses spinning of yarn as an allegory to political events across the centuries. It refers to Martin Luther, John Mitchel, Nelson, Napoleon and others. Don't know whether the tune was original to this song or whether "Wheels of the World" also borrowed it from something older, but it is definitely the same tune as yours - I have it in your book and also on vinyl sung by Nigel Denver.
