Thread Name: Lyr Req: Broad Black Brimmer
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Broad Black Brimmer
Found the old thread. It has a mistake or three, but here are some of the words needed: Chorus, line 7: But when men CLAIM Ireland's freedom, 2nd verse: It was the uniform being worn BY me father long ago, When he reached--- It was the uniform me father wore in that little church--, When OUL' Father Mike ---. Next to last line: And when they bore his body "down the rugged heather braes", they placed---. I have corrected old to oul, and I am not happy with the thread's "the rugged heather braes." Perhaps the word down should be through. I will check my cd (Wolfe Tones "Rifles of the IRA") when I get a chance.
