Bo Lyr Req: True Blue Bill (from Gene Autry) (28) RE: 12 Jan 98

The blue in True blue probably comes from the Royal Blue or Conservative\whig blue. The Battle of Sherra-Moor a song about the 18th C. has the lines:

'But had ye seen the philibegs, And skyrin tartan trews, man; When in the teeth they daur'd our Whigs, And Covenant trueblues, man!

I think we're all reflecting our British heritage her folks.
