It's Welsh mate, he was my Great Grandfather a farmer from Anglesey he spoke no English
I was his first great grandchild and I have a memory of him singing that tune to me as a small child

When I heard the tune it was one of those things that momentarily overwhelm you for a couple of seconds, then I just felt really happy and felt tears running down my cheeks

I remember it when Brotherhood of Man released that... early 1970's was it?

Or am I thinking about Abba?
