An Irish folk song from the 1800s, in which some British military recruiters try to convince two Irish cousins to join and they all end up beating the crap out of each other for 8 verses. Be sure to check out Paul Brady’s amazing 1977 performance of it in open G tuning – I think he added a couple of the verses. He sings it an octave higher than I can.
