GUEST,Len Wallace Lyr Req: If It Wisnae for the Union (Matt McGinn) (7) Need lyr: If It Was Nae for the Union, 01 Aug 03

Hello fellow travellers,

Been listening to a Hamish Imlach recording in which he sings a song I believed called "If It Was Nae for the Union".

The chorus begins:

"Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ra-loo I'll tell you something awfully true . . .
if it wasnae for the union"

There are a lot of words I cannot make out from the bristly brogue of his.

Anyone have the lyrics?

For music that never dies,

Len Wallace
