    Since we booked our tickets I've been humming this tune. If you've never heard it it's a famous folk song,

     

    this version is by the Clancy Brothers

     

    this version is by the Pogues

     

    :jiggy:

    That is a great tune and words and as a kid growing up in South Australia we were taught to sing this song.

    As South Australia was the only free state ie NO convicts were brought here unlike the other states.

    the boys are watching boxing live on tv , shouting for me to turn it down, but i love the pogues version, the louder the better it sounds, or maybe its just cause its late here in the uk,
