GUEST,DTM Correct location for historical song? (57* d) RE: Correct location for historical song? 13 Aug 19


"Floodgarry" as recorded by the Corries and written by George Weir is a great song however, I'm sure there is a blatant error in the chorus.

"Green is Flodgarry, blue is the sea,
Born here the lassie, tae guide oor Prince free"

There's no doubt the 'lassie' referred to is Flora Macdonald who was born in South Uist and died in Flodigarry. (Note also the three variations of the spelling of Flodigarry). Okay, it may have been better had the lyrics been historically accurate however, it doesn't detract me from really liking the song.

Bottom line: it's your song, you say what you like.
It's easy, just think 'politician'
