Thread Name: Lyr Req: Arthur McBride
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Arthur McBride
In a long ago magazine article A.L.Lloyd quoted this when asked 'what was his favourite song? I was quite surprised because he didn't sing it very often, but his version was really good. Sung unaccompanied. I started singing it, but then Paul Brady's recording came out with all that great guitar work. Thereafter I got so fed up with people asking me if I'd heard Paul's version that I dropped the song from my repertoire, haven't sung it in years. Maybe I should bring it back again?   Burl.
