Thread Name: Roddy McCorley: date of origin ?
Subject: RE: Roddy McCorley: date of origin ?
I have sung and loved this song for thirty-five years, compelled by the images -- however fictional - of the hurrying hosts of men coming to save a blonde hero with a rope around his neck. I am grateful to all of you who have finally added the depth of reality to my shallow vision. I still love the song, and will sing it anyway just as written, but I am really grateful for your labors and erudition. Many thanks.
