Wrinkles Origins: Only Our Rivers Run Free (M MacConnell) (60* d) RE: ADD: Only our rivers 15 Mar 05

Well Chordstrangler many many thanks for your post and for your wonderful song; our hearts are the richer for it.

I've heard so many legends about this song; that it was a 'kesh song, that it was a lament for the loss of the sticky's honour and dignity being overwhelmed by the provies, and even that it was _really_ about the old UVF! All rubish of course because as you say it was penned before the first halfer was chucked in the present conflict! Perhaps it's just that it is such a wonderful song that everyone wants to "own" it! (and who can blame them).

Only Our Rivers has given me much pleasure in the playing and the performing of it over the years, and sparked much deep reflection; for ehich I thank you.

They say there's many a wise man has come from Enniskillen, and your the proof of it!
