GUEST,Timbrel Lyr Req: Galtee Farmer (from Steeleye Span) (6) RE: Lyr Req: Galtee Farmer 29 Feb 00


I checked out "Farmer Michael Hayes"and that's definitely not it...is it possible to search the forums for the other title? The story of the song is that an old farmer and his son take a worn=out mare to sell at the country fair. A "Dublin boy" buys it, dresses it up a bit, and sells it back to the poor farmer & son as a retired racer, for 4 times what he originally paid...when they get home, the wife & daughter immediately see what has happened and pile on the abuse.
