Most miserable trad song ever.

Had a bit of a discussion about this a the weekend.

I will give me my view but throw it open first.

“The great Gaels of Ireland are the men that God made mad,
For all their wars are merry, and all their songs are sad.”

― G.K. Chesterton,

Kilkelly has to win, my children have emigrated, the turf won't burn, the crops are failing, and that just for starters.

Yeah, if you start a song sitting down at a young man's graveside you know you're on a spiral.
