They're Playing Our Song Again.

GF and I had dinner in an Irish Pub last night.  And, of course, there was the obligatory Irish Folk Band playing.

I must digress for a moment.  American Country Music has always consisted of, "My dog got dead and my truck's done busted and my wife's done run off with some Banker, but her mother still lives here..." kinda stuff.  Irish Folk Music rarely veers from, "The English, they came and we kicked their arse, but they sent some more and we're livin' in the basement wiv a potato.  Damn The English!"

Both of these wear thin on me fairly quickly.

Anyway, you can't see squat in this video, but if you listen, you'll be able to hear the song they're playing (for Eric).  I have it on good authority that the mandolin player is the childhood friend of a third cousin of the nephew of the guy who played Ike Godsey!  Enjoy.
