framus Lyr Req: Altered folk songs (72* d) RE: Lyr Req: Altered folk songs 21 Jan 11


I know from personal experience that a Hamish Imlac (not ancient, but tomorrow's folk) song, The Orange Juice Song*, was widely adapted to fit into a Norn' Ireland context back in the 60/70s.
We included local place names such as the Starlight Ballroom the Falls and the line "Sandbags over the Peace Line" was definitely used in a slightly lewd context.
This from Grace Neill's, inter alia, a long time ago.

AKA Hairy Mary.
