Thread Name: Anyone know of Tom Yates
Subject: RE: BS: TOM YATES
Long ago and far away, I remember him, two songs in particular spring to mind. One was a Streets of Laredo thing about a "Young Dosser wrapped up in his doss bag" the other is a song he used to finish with which has often cropped up in my addled brain over the years. The song was called Bide A'while, the chorus went "bide awhile, bide a while, sit you down by meeee and bide a while, bide awhile in friendly company. If anyone knows the verses, I would appreciate them. The last I remember of him was that he went down to London in about 1967ish. JohnB
