Subject: RE: Tune Req: What are your favorite Scottish tun
Well there are so many... however, one has to be, and I believe it is a Mat McGinn song, The Crew of the SS Shieldhall. It is a lovely wee lament about the dificulties which attend life aboard the gallent wee boat which takes the sewage out to sea from Scotlands lea (or loo?) If any one knows the rest, Id love it if you could post the words. I recall one particularly lovely immage of flies rather than seagulls follwing her wake, and a chorus which makes ones eyes tear... We re the crew of the SS Shieldhall/ Pull the chain and we answer the call/ When we pass the aroma, would put ye in a coma/ We re the crew of the SS Shieldhall.

Och, Ive got te go, Im ballin agin an me tears are gettin me Glasgo Celtics shirt wet... Larry Otway
