GUEST,ossonflags Lyr Req: 'the harvest to shear' / McShane (4) Lyr Req: harvest the shear 27 Mar 03

I heard this song years ago and can only remember fragments.I believe it was sung by eddie furey.

Some of it is:

"went over to england to earn a promotion
went over to england to harvest the shear


"wack for the dah
whack for the laddie
whack for the lah-with me too rie ar lay"

and there is a bit about punching someone in the throat. Can any one help.
