One of my favourites has the refrain 'And the petals fell from the Rose of York, never to bloom again' - can't recall the exact title but it's about the butchery of a Yorkshire regiment in WWI. I'm a West Ridinger originally but still sing this song down in Kent occasionally and it gets me right there every time - whether it does the same for the Kentish audience is a different matter!!
