the great Gaels of Ireland
the race that God made mad
for all their wars are merry
and all their songs are sad
words remembered by John A. Roche
from a poem by G.K. Chesterton
[From: http://www.elyrics.net ]
called "The Balled of the White Horse."
(thanks to Peter Fallon)
music derived from a traditional Irish fiddle tune entitled "John Roche's Favorite"
