Subject: RE: Lyr Req: songs by Tommy Sands
Tattie Bogle you are correct that Ed and Willy should start a new thread - but to help them on their way I think the phrasing of their song is similar to Carrickfergus.

(I speak as a singer, not someone who reads music!)

It also reminds me of another well known (Scottish?) song that a friend sings, and if I could just get the first line into my head I'd remember what it is! -- a song of unrequited love, towards the end he plans to go away to Ingoe, to some lonely valley where womankind cannot be found -- and to put his head to a cask of brandy etc.

See this old age / rubbish memory?!
