Thread Name: Lyr Req: Arthur McBride
Subject: RE: Arthur McBride
the song is in P W Joyce's 'Old Irish Songs' from late 19th c., refers to it as going back to Napoleonic Wars, if memory serves, Paul Brady's 'Liberty Tapes' has great live version from 1972? I think, though he recorded it with Andy Irvine, and elsewhere I believe, often used as an encore in the Planxty days
