Zipster Origins: Green Hills of Tyrol/Scottish Soldier (29) RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Green Hills of Tyrol/Scottish Sold 21 Feb 02

Dave, my argument is not so much with the song, the sentiment is great (I might have known the Welsh wouild have a word for it) and the hook of hills not being hills of home I like a lot. I think it maybe deserves better as the rest of the lyrics tend towards the cheesy, (I think the rhythm of the melody perhaps encourages that). I think I'm just saying I consider it a bettter tune than a song.

I'm sure you'll understand that like many Scots I had a problem with the popular image of kilt/heather/shortbread as presented on TV throughout my childhood.

Mmario haven't investigated the links as yet but info looks great many thanks
