Mike Byers Origins: Arthur McBride - What's the background? (77* d) Arthur McBride 28 Apr 01


I was wondering about the origin of this song; most of the references I've found list it as Irish in origin, but some of the lyrics I've come across seem to be in Scots dialect. Does it date from the 1800s or was it written later?
