Dita Tune Req: Butchers of Glasgow (Matt McGinn) (9) RE: Tune Req: Butchers of Glasgow (McGinn) 19 Apr 03


I'm afraid it never had a tune. It is a poem. Matt, as well as singing, told jokes and performed recitations (poems). This is one of them.

The section in "McGinn of the Calton" is titled "Songs and Poems" although only this and the "Big Effin' Bee" are included.

Although his records for Xtra were all songs, his later albums included a number of his poems.

You'll just have to provide your own, in the traditional fashion of fitting another tune to it, or witing your own. Matt wouldn't have minded, He was pleased to have his stuff performed.

love, john
