A DIRGE ON ST. PADDY'S DAY

Who would think a lad from Dartford, just outside of London, would link up with an Irish band to sing this mournful tale of murder and lust.


Never mind the national differences.

I love this version of this song.

  7. I first heard Long Black Veil done by The Kingston Trio. It is a true classic and you can hear why Mick wanted to have a go at it. Thanks

  8. Tangentially, Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner as an Irish murder ballad.
