Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Bard of Armagh (Jim Brannigan)
Subject: RE: A Tribute to Tommy Makem from Jim Lad
Frank, Jim said he took it down (it was up for 3+ days) this morning. The original song is the Bard of Armagh, the tune is basically the Streets of Laredo. Original song and tune in the DT

Good song, Jim. More sad than anything else, but a lot of people are going to connect with that feeling.
