InOBU Help: Songs of the Lincoln Brigade (28) RE: Help: Songs of the Lincoln Brigade 02 Mar 09


I had an old friend, I haven't seen in years, hope he is still with us, Jock, a one legged sailor who fought with the international brigade in Spain, he was born in Scotland and had a pronouced bur, but was a US citizen and had been in the Links. I once sang "Jamie Foyers" for him. He nodded and gave me a truely wicked grin and said, "Wheel lad, I'll sing you one we REALLY sang in Spain." Then to the tune of "The Worker's Flag" (Oh Tannenbaum) he sang,
The Worker's flag is growing pink,
It's no so red as ye may think.

Bless him where ever he is is.
Cheers
Lorcan
