GUEST,Len Wallace Lyr Add: A new Irish rebel song: Starry Plough (11) RE: A new Irish rebel song: Starry Plough 09 Aug 03

Thanks people for the compliments.

Terry, you are correct. The verse that reads about Limerick and then Munster is incorrect. Bad edit on my part. Glad you caught the mistake before I sent it out to more people.

The verse should be:

In 1919 Leinster workers
         rose in many numbers.
In Munster, Meath and Kildare too
        they rose up from their slumbers.

Interesting how this song is taking shape AFTER I wrote it. Last night coming home from a gig (and after singing it) I was a bit displeased with the melody line. Too much repitition I thought. So I changed a few notes around on the second line of verse. Guess that's the folk music process.

Thanks again everyone.

For music that never dies, Len Wallace
