Ted Leo & the Pharmacists – Tell Balgeary, Balgury is Dead

Posted on Updated on

Another one of those songs begging to be recast by a string band (phenomenal as the original is), here’s a 2003 tune from Washington DC’s Ted Leo & the Pharmacists that riffs on the old British folk tale “The King ‘O The Cats.”

I’m calling on a stranger when i’ve got not back up plan
I’m disregarding danger when i’m in your foreign land
And if you want to meet me, wear a red flower in your hair
In the graveyard at Inchigeelagh, in black clothing, I’ll be there
