Saint Patrick's day music blog: Auf Wiedersehen Crossmaglen

I mentioned in the previous post that you have to have an odd sense of humor to enjoy some of these songs.

Now, just imagine your average British recruit in the 1960s, with a recruiting Sargent spinning yards about pulling duty in the post-war Berlin ... and meanwhile, the recruit is sent to Northern Ireland. Talk about your bait and switch.

For the record, "crag" [sic], pronounced "crack," is Irish slang for a good time.
