Thread Name: Origins: Arthur McBride - What's the background?
Subject: Arthur McBride- What's the background?
I was just listening to a song called, Arthur McBride, a nice song, but was wondering what the background is to the song.

Listening to the lyrics it sounds like he's been asked to join the army and doesnt want to enlist.

But whats the whole story?

Can someone tell me the background to this song, like where it comes from etc.
