Thread Name: ADD/Chords Req: Patrick's Arrival (William Maginn)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Patrick's Arrival
I don't know if this is correctly attributed to William Maginn - many poems and stories have been misattributed - but Maginn was a Cork protestant who opposed Catholic emancipation and he was fond of representing Saint Patrick as a drunken hooligan.
