Thread Name: Lyr Req: Ride On (Jimmy MacCarthy)
Subject: RE: Irish Song; 'Ride On'
JMac is one of my idols. It was his songs that got me into Irish music. I've got all of his CDs and love his songs very much and rather resent your assumption that I don't know what I'm talking about.

'Away with the fairies' isn't an insult where I come from. I do, however, think that he uses words he likes the sound of and the meaning is often secondary. Nothing wrong with that. It wasn't meant as a criticism.
