Slight change..... I was going through a list for Ireland's favourite folksong and found this:
Pure perfection - maith sibh, ladies!

Just discovered this bloke which is a wee bit embarrassing since he is Scottish. Choice lyrics folks.

Difficult to Cure, of course. ... But I do repudiate the theme of the first track!

As I posted on the coronavirus thread, there was a stunning rendition of "Freedom Come-All-Ye" by Iona Fyfe on Radio 4 this morning.
It reminded me of hearing it sung by Luke Kelly in the late 70s, one of the highlights of my time back in the auld country.
There's a version by Iona Fyfe on youTube, but it's not a very good recording. I was going to post Luke's version (and I'd encourage you to look it up), but then I found this on Vimeo

The words are in heavy Scots dialect... and even then need explanation. The best "translation I've seen is
The rough wind blows in the clear day's dawn
Blows clouds helter-skelter over the bay
But there's more than a rough wind blowing
Through the Great Glen of the world today.
It's a thought that will make our own rats
All those rogues who strut and swagger
Take the road and seek other places
To carry out their evil plans.

No more will our fine young lads
March to war when our masters bide
Nor will children from the mines and villages
Mourn the ships sailing down the River Clyde*
Broken families in lands we've helped oppress
Will never again curse ''Scotland the Brave''
Black and white, united as in marriage
Make the vile barracks of their masters bare

So everybody who loves freedom,
Never listen to those who cry out doom,
In your house are all the children of Adam
They will find bread, porridge and a painted room!
When MacLean** meets his friends in Springburn***
All of the roses and cherries will begin to bloom
And a black boy from Nyanga****
Will destroy his master's gallows.

*
The Broomielaw was a pier on the Clyde in central Glasgow.
** John Maclean, Glasgow socialist who died as the result of hunger strike.
*** A district in northern Glasgow.
**** A reference to a poem about the Sharpeville massacre ("die Kind") which Mandela read on his
inauguration.
