The Leaving of Liverpool

Happy St-Patrick's Day everyone! To kick start the day, I am uploading The Leaving of Liverpool, sung by the Dubliners. This may seem uncongruous, but Liverpool has an important Irish diaspora, to the point when it is sometimes considered an Irish city East of Ireland. St-Paddy's is celebrated there just as intensely as anywhere in Ireland, maybe more so. I had my best St-Patrick's Day when I was living there. And this had to be acknowledged and celebrated in a song today. So here it is.
