    I listened to the following song over and over and over again on a record player hundreds of times from the time that I was five, six, seven, eight or nine years of age.

    Now you know why I ended up kind of argumentative and somewhat rebellious.




    The Clancys-Kevin Barry

    I don't understand this thread's connection to near-death-experiences, ghosts or religion.

    How long do we have to wait for that other shoe to drop?

    Never knew it was Little Richard but this was one of the first tunes I listened to.

    We even sent it in as a request to the local radio station as a poor joke on my sister's birthday.

    Kevin Barry
    Clancey Brothers
    In Mountjoy jail one Monday morning
    High upon the gallows tree
    Kevin Barry gave his young life
    For the cause of liberty
    But a lad of eighteen summers
    Yet no true man can deny
    As he walked to death that morning
    He proudly held his head on high
    Another martyr for old Erin
    Another murder for the crown
    The British laws may crush the Irish
    But cannot keep their spirits down
    Just before he faced the hangman
    In his dreary prison cell
    The British soldiers tortured Barry
    Just because he would not tell
    The names of all his brave companions
    And other things they wished to know
    Turn informer or we'll kill you
    Kevin Barry answered no
    Another martyr for old Erin
    Another murder for the crown
    The British laws may crush the Irish
    But cannot keep their spirits down

    ... 18 suicidal Irish & looking for a cause to die for ?(the uneducated listening child)

    sounds like you identify with imperialist revolutionary's

    like native american indians ?

    Kevin Barry (song)
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "Kevin Barry" is a popular Irish rebel song recounting the death of Kevin Barry, a member of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) who was hanged on 1 November 1920. He was 18 years old at the time. He is one of a group of IRA members executed in 1920–21 collectively known as The Forgotten Ten.

    what has that got to do with trump, Israel & the philistinians ?

    "the forgotten 10"

    and your trying to link this to trump and Israel via what ?
    British Columbia ?
    but i thought the french took over the northern lands of canada ?
    and took them over off the British
    which makes them liberators of colonialism ?


    https://www.britannica.com/topic/Ten-Lost-Tribes-of-Israel

    your guy, Trump
    Israel & the Zionists
    Prophecy's of the Jewish bible
    War
    ...

    how does that fit in with the IRA
    Catholics
    protestants
    Jewish imperialist settlers taking palistinian homes
    and a looming militarization occupation of yet another urban population by a military super power

    if your watching non stop news about the Jewish occupation of palistine then no wonder your head is spinning

    watching all that suffering non stop does funny things to your head
    some of which cant be reversed, assuming you survive

    i was raised on a varied diet of classical, folk, opera,mainstream radio & frequently live listening to non professional orchestras while being encouraged to play musical instruments while mixing with amateur(hard working professionals who did theater in the private time) theater performers.

    what do they call those emotional attachment songs ?
    emotional monikers ?

    This brilliant song by Mr. Kevin Barry came to him in a NDE. How else would he would up with the insightful lyrics "The British Laws may crush the Irish but they cannot keep their spirits down"?

    I have a brilliant idea about eliminating interest rates as it relates to the U.S. and Canadian Central Banks if you would like to hear it?

    The only song I have on my phone is Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner. I heard it in a bar once back in the seventies and I remembered almost all of the words. Then, a decade or two later, I found it on cassette in the bargain bin at Zellers. That was when I first found out that it was by Warren Zevon (possibly best known for Werewolves of London).
