Hi

Anyone know the words to this one?

It's a parody on the Simon and Garfunkel classic, except the words are about a folk singer.

Thanks

Slainte

Dear Alison,

Look up "Folkie" in the DT; chances are that's the article you're looking for. It includes several lyrical variations. (And, for the record, politcally correct, it AIN'T!)

Never heard of this song before but got even more intrigued when I looked at the lyrics. It's from down home Lower Sackville is a suburb of Halifax. Moosehead beer is brewed in Saint John New Brunswick (and Dartmouth NS before they shut that plant down). Thanks for another great song. I love this site. - Bob

Alison, please excuse the intrusion on the thread. I was just in Halifax and several other cities. In one of them I saw a boat named "Slainte". I always assumed it was a salutation of good will, but could you tell me exactly what it means and the derivation? Thanks

Allan

Hi Allan,

It is gaelic and means, "Good heatlth to you" or something along those lines. We always used it as a toast, you know like when other people say "Cheers".
