Friday night Youtubery

Great Irish song by a great American songwriter (!). Yeppers, this here be a song written by Steve Earle. A version of it by Irish singer Mundy and Irish musician Sharon Shannon (the accordion player in this video) was the #1 single in Ireland last year.

Would type more, but my keyboard is malfunctioning. It's covered by cat paws, complaining I am not being proper staff.

    what's a fellow to do?
    'cause her was black
    and her eyes were blue

    i love this song. i love steve earle anyway, but this song is wonderful. it's very popular in ireland, especially the west. you hear it in the pubs all the time.

  2. Thanks! Great tune. I'll be putting it on one of my road trip CD's.
