The unsingability of broadsides speaks for itself

What Dick Gaughan sings as "Erin Go Bragh" is only a couple of words different from its first known version as the 19th century broadside "Duncan Campbell". You must be the first person to have noticed it was unsingable. Have you asked Gaughan to stop?
