GUEST,Anon Lyr Req: Farewell to Derry (F. Brolly) (19) RE: Lyr Req: Farewell to Derry 12 Apr 11

I think some of your ears and eyes are a bit 'off' gentlemen. However I would at the moment jut point out that joiing the army in what the time setting for this haunting song seems to be, was a shilling or a bob, so the reference to "wanting jobs they took their bobs and said farewell to Derry" is most probably a referce to taking the King's shilling, or joining the army.
