  3. hugobos1 says:

    I think every one assumes its Irish because the album is called ‘Irish to the? core”

  4. 135wish says:

    I’m really loving how since it is a folk song? everyone is assuming it is Irish. However, it was written in England in the mid 1800s and it is about a bricklayer giving up his job and voluntarily emigrating, not about a labourer getting deported due to committing a crime. I know most people on youtube aren’t exactly savants but even a basic bit of googling or a short look at wikipedia would help most of you out a lot better than hearsay.

    The Shores of Botany Bay……. Classic song. Its about a bricklayer who is sick of the working conditions in old Ireland, decides to emigrate to Australia (Botany Bay) on ‘the good ship Ragamuffin’ to try his luck on the rich alluvial goldfields.

    For those? who don’t know what a ‘navvy’ is, its a term used to describe the manual labourers working on major civil engineering projects in the UK.

    about? a bricklayer getting fired in Ireland and emigrating to Oz to work

  13. peterdcarter1 says:

    It’s about navvies going to work in Australia. Where they were employed by the British Empire. They were not forced. It’s fashionable for you American’s who have drunk a pint of porter to once to enjoy the cache of the the Irish victim, but if you used your ears and the brain in that thick skull you have you may hear the truth. But I guess that just would not fit in with your world view would it. ?

  14. CrawdaddyJoe says:

    Actually, this one’s about voluntarily emigration. The song is from the perspective? of a navvy going to Australia.
