Subject: RE: Help: Shule Aroon: sell my rock, rod, reel
There is a song in the Digital Tradition Songbook which is based on Siúl a Rún taken from Folk Songs Out of Wisconsin,called, I'll Sell My Hat,Ill Sell my Coat, with some attempt at the Gaelic words e.g. Schule I rack-a-shack, schule I barbecue, When I sell my salla balla eel, come bibble in the lush- eye lorry. Presumably someone heard the song being sung in Gaelic and this is their attempt. It reveals the durability and appeal of folksongs.
