John (and all)

Fiddlers Green was the first song that I learned that put me on the path to playing and singing trad., and not-so trad., English, Irish, etc. music.

Thanks for getting me started. My life has truly been enriched from the learning and performing songs such as yours.

And by the way, apparently you wrote it about the time that I was born, some 40 years ago.
