Subject: RE: lyrics that work with different melodies
Matt McGinn used to sing the words of Kevin Barry to the tune of the Sash, as McGrath pointed out above. Of course this was a deliberate way of dealing with bigots asking for one song or the other. It is also a nice way of using the fine tunes which many orange songs are made up of, without using their sentiments.
