mkebenn, when I heard the Kingston Trio's "Roddy McCorley," I thought they were singing,
"... for Run Tun Town, for Run Tun town,
he led them through the fray ..."


"... from Farmfair and from Fisherscot..." (I thought those were the names of towns ..."

and I thought they were singing
"Around him marked in grim array
a stalwart burnished band"
