Thread Name: Lyr Req: Rosin the Bow? / The Good in Living
Subject: RE: Rosin the Bow
The Clancy/Makem version of "Rosin the Bow" is on their "Irish Drinking Songs" recording. Their version of "Men of the West" is on "Songs of the Irish Rebellions" (I believe that's the correct title but I'm probably wrong again).

I like to think the Bow/Beau thing is not a mondegreen but a clever play on words. Well, not all that clever.
