6.  Lancashire Lads:

Traditional

Kathleen Mullaly Masino - Lead vocal
Bill Masino - Harmony vocal
Colin O'Brian - Acoustic Guitar
Randy Wothke - Snare
Bryan Blaylock - Bodhran
 
We first heard this song as it was done by The Old Blind Dogs www.oldblinddogs.demon.co.uk/. Kathleen tries really hard to imitate their accent and sings "Lan-cah-shir".  It nice to be naive enough to believe with this lassie, that her sweat heart will not only come back from war, but will stay true.
 
 
Scotland Forever by Lady Butler
 

 Lyrics:

1) It was last Monday morning, 
     I heard them call and say,
     The orders came this afternoon, 
     weíre bound to march away.
 
Chorus: 
For the Lancashire lads have gone abroad, 
whatever shall we do?
Theyíre leaving may a pretty fair maids to cry, 
what shall I do?
 
2) Said the mother to the daughter, 
     what makes you talk so strange.
     That you want to marry a soldier lad, 
     the whole wide world to range.
     For soldiers they are rambliní boys, 
     they have but little pay.
     Can they maintain a wife and child 
     on sixteen pence a day?
 
Chorus:
 
3) Said the father to the daughter, 
     "Iíll have you close confined.
     Youíll never marry a soldier lad. 
     Heíll be no son of mine.
     If you confine me seven long years 
     and after set me free,
     Iíll go and find my soldier lad 
     when I gain my liberty.
 
Chorus:
 
     My true loved dressed in scarlet 
     and turned up with the blue
     And every place the he goes in 
     my sweetheart is true.
     For they have sweethearts enough, 
     me boys, and girls to please their minds,
     But Iíll never forget sweat Manchester, 
     the girls they left behind.
