I know this song was played on a Mike Harding programme earlier this year, but try as I might I can't find any more details about it.
The first verse and chorus is
Two farmers met at a fair and between 'em bought a cow,
They both wanted to take it 'ome, but couldn't agree somehow.
They met a Lawyer on the way, who tried to square the case,
And how they carried on that day, you'd say t'was a disgrace.
One Farmer pulled it's head and the other one pulled it's tail,
And over it they had a jolly row, hello,
And both to law they went, and all their money spent,
Whilst the Lawyer kept a milking of the cow, cow, cow,
Whilst the Lawyer kept a milking of the cow.
I did find a mudcat entry, posted by PennyBlack back in 2004, who gave all the lyrics but also wanted to know origins etc.
So does any one know any more about this song now?
