thread says: tune is 'Fainne Geal an Lae'(the dawning of the day)."

The words are so evocative but the delivery at the BBC 2014 by Jim Radford is so matter of fact, the sub message just hangs there "take it or leave it, I know, I was there"

There are times when you don't analyse you just let the emotion wash over you. That's the power of song. Particularly folk song.
