Subject: RE: The Motorway song
Hi!

If you're interest in the Motorway (US Mudcatters: "The Interstate") extends beyond this one song, you can also search on ENGLAND'S MOTORWAY in the DT Search Box in the top right hand corner. It's a lovely song by Ewan MacColl to the tune of Paddy West or Come All Ye Tramps And Hawkers, was recorded by The Irish Tradition back in the 70's. My uncle, Bill Cremin, of Bronsa, Co. Kerry, spent half his working life in England much of it building roads in the UK and this is a gem based on all accounts within the family.

All the best,
Dan
