The Great Gaels Lyrics

Artist: The Roches
Album: Can We Go Home Now?

the great Gaels of Ireland
the race that God made mad
for all their wars are merry
and all their songs are sad

from a poem by G.K. Chesterton
called "The Balled of the White Horse."
(thanks to Peter Fallon)

music derived from a traditional Irish fiddle tune entitled "John Roche's Favorite"
