    I often wonder how many over the other side of the pond know the original meaning of the song "The wearing of the green"

    Ah  someone knows, (or used their google-fu)

    Before then green had not had any particular meaning to the Irish people. In fact the original Irish flag was a blue background with a harp on it, which is still used as the Irish Presidential flag  .   They adopted green as a protest, and it would heve mostly been nothing more than a green cockade, or a green ribbon, or even simply a bunch of green shamrock.

    Beautiful Lulaby and Render Dee!!!!

    Brings me back to when I was a child and Me Mother used to sing that very song to me.

    I have very strong Irish decent also have some Scottish and French (France)!!!

    Thank you Saphirewild, I too remember my grandmother singing it to me when I was a young lad some 60 years past. My mother also had a nice voice but she was more into country or Elvis.

    As for smiling this was never a song on my top 20 but it made me smile. It also popped into my head at times and would hang around for days.

    Oh goodness.. Now I'll have that song in my head for days.  This was a family song to sing in the car when I was little... also... Leavin' on a Jet Plane.  I know both songs by heart and even have a bit of my own harmony for a few spots.  Thanks for bringing back some great car traveling memories Dee... oh.. and love your artwork to go with it.  :)  Thanks for sharing!

    Unlike my last render this song was in my top 20 a very long time ago when the earth was green and even harder to get out of your head.
