Avicii vs Lurgan

Apologies that this one is in Irish (I won't make a habit of it), but I though Gaelic speakers might get a kick out of it, especially young people. It has gone viral online (over 2,000,000 hits), especially in Ireland, and is spurring interest in Irish among young people, so young people in Scotland...

Julie Fowlis finally posted the lyrics, which explain the bits I was missing, especially in the middle line of the second verse.

Re: Blackbird (Beatles) Lyrics

This thread has been dormant for a while, but I recently started to try to get the lyrics down and came across this thread, so I've joined the forum so I can post what i have thus far, and see if others can help. There's one line in particular where I have trouble hearing some sounds, although I can...
