Subject: RE: switching lyrics and melodys
The Clancy Brothers (with or without Tommy Makem, not sure) do a version of Master McGrath to the tune of Sweet Betsy From Pike, to which tune they also do (separate album) Moses-ri-too-ra-li-ay. On yet another album, they do Master McGrath to something haunting and lovely and I've never heard anything else to that tune, does anybody know what it is? Or did they write it for this song, to avoid having YET ANOTHER to the tune of Sweet Betsy?
