GUEST,Jim Mclean Origin: Glencoe Massacre (Jim McLean) (62* d) RE: Who wrote 24 Jul 02


Hi, I knew Roddy quite well (went fishing with him) and he said the gaelic version was tradtional which he learned from his mum. He used to sing it at a folk song club in Glasgow, at he bottom of Argyll Street. The Trongate? (i'm from Paisley!) Again this would be about 1959. Jimmy MacGregor only prettified the song. Cheers, Jim Mclean PS. When we were writing Ding Dong Dollar, we called ourselves The Glesca Eskimos because some protesters challenged a sub at Faslane in a canoe!!
