Thread Name: Lyr Req: Broad Black Brimmer
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Broad Black Brimmer
Mrrzy, I found it on "Live alive-oh!, not the "Rifles." "It's just a broad black brimmer, WITH ITS (said very fast) ribbons frayed and torn", is the first line of the chorus. It is CLAIM in the 7th line. In the 1st verse, 3rd line, it is "with feathered PLUME." In line 6, "It's a memory of" rather than In Memory of. Second verse 1st line is "It was the uniform being worn by me father long ago When he reached ..." You are right, "It was the uniform being worn in that little church..." It sounds like "OLD Father Mike" rather than "oul" as in the thread. The next to last line of the 2nd verse still bothers me. It sounds like "And when they bore his body down that rugged meadow braes" which doesn't sound right. Sorry, my ears can't pick up that last one.
