And the band played Waltzing Matilda

"Bob Dylan told an interviewer in 1984, "I never heard a singer as good as Liam ever. He was just the best ballad singer I’d ever heard in my life. Still is, probably."" Liam Clancy, 1935 - 2009.

This song by this singer always puts a lump in my throat. Today there's something in my eye as well.

Oh, Liam Clancy owns this song [blinks away tears].

Dunno if you happened to read Something Worth Fighting For. It's a great little wartime essay.
