This week's Tune of the Week was in honor of St. Patrick's Day. It's actually a drinking song about a man who was disliked and the town celebrates upon his death. You've got to hear the lyrics to appreciate it, so tune in to: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/300790

I've heard many funny verses to that tune. Search up a band called Finest Kind, I think based out of Ottawa Canada, you will enjoy all their stuff. Thanks for playing it on the banjo.

Thanks for the tip, Jonny5, I'll look them up. I just did a thread on a Canadian song, Log Drivers Waltz, and had several other good tips. You can look that up, too, if you want. banjohangout.org/topic/300565
