GUEST,Norman 'Traditional' songs that are NOT ! (90* d) RE: 'Traditional' songs that are NOT ! 25 Jun 13

'Little Yellow Roses':

"This song originates from the Spanish Civil War, a poem written by a prisoner awaiting execution. It was smuggled out of jail and became this song".

That's the story that often precedes this increasingly popular folk club song. It sounds bwtter than saying "This was written by British character actor Trevor Peacock and recorded by Adam Faith in 1960".
