GUEST,Peterr Lyr Add: The Old Dun Cow Caught Fire (H Champion) (14) RE: Lyr Add: The Old Dun Cow Caught Fire (H Champion) 17 Feb 11


It's an old term but don't know the origins in spite of some fanciful explanations turned up on Google. Thanks Jim for pointing me to that YouTube recording. I was looking for an explanation of why it's often sung as 'Somebody shouted 'Macintyre'' (followed by everyone shouting it.) So the words are the explanation, plus another verse or two depending on how you split it.
