Land of the Free and the Tone Deaf
Sing along if you like, the lyrics are here.
Back in the day...
"I am not an Ulsterman, but yesterday, the first of July, as I followed their amazing attack I felt I would rather be an Ulsterman than anything else in the world...The enemys' gunfire raked them from the left, and machine guns in a village enfiladed them on the right, but battalion after battalion came out of the awful wood as steaily as I have seen them at Ballykinler, Clandeboye or Shanes' Castle..." - W.B. Spender, 2nd July 1916
