Swave N. Deboner Lyr Req: Fields of Green (14) RE: Tune Req: Is this an Irish song; if so, title? 07 Apr 05


Hey Amos,

I had considered that at first, but I couldn't fit the lyrics of Fields of Athenry with the rhythm of this tune. At least not the words Pete St. John wrote. I have a hunch that it isn't from Ireland. It sounds more like it could be from the American Civil War, an era during which many a tune was created by Irish-Americans.
