Lyrics, arrangement, and performance by Barry Owens.
The tune is based on the original song, "TEMPLE BAR". Special thanks to the original TEMPLE BAR composers, Nathan Carter & John Farry (Bardis Music/ Carn Music). Nathan and John graciously granted CLRG permission for the melody to be used as the official anthem for our Worlds Celebration.
