GUEST,Jim McLean Lyr Add: John Maclean March (18) RE: LYR ADD: John Maclean March 26 Jul 02


There's also a Gaelic poem by Sorley MacLean: In English it reads: Not they who died in the hauteur of Inverkeithing, in spite of valour and pride, the high head of our story, but he who was in Glasgow the battle-post of the poor, great John MacLean, the top and hem of our story. I also have a broadsheet, double page music sheet, published by The Scottish Workers' Music Association. The three line notation is hand writen and just gives the credits as words by Hamish Henderson/Music trad arr. HH

A further credit on the back page reads: First sung by William Noble at the John MacLean Memorial Meeting in the St. Andrews Halls, 28th November. 1948. The front has a picture of MACLEAN 1879 - 1923 and a quote from the above poem.
