GUEST,Robyn Lyr Req: On the Road to Anywhere (Scott Sanders) (16) RE: Lyr Req: Road to Anywhere 07 Jul 16

My Grandad used to sing the version of "On the Road to Anywhere" posted by Bainbo. He was from Lancashire and migrated to Australia in the 1920s. He had a great repertoire of similar songs and they were passed down to my mother, and to us. I have taught them to my sons. "On the Road to Anywhere" was a particular favourite, especially when you added to the end of the chorus "have a banana, got some". Fantastic to find out that it lives on well beyond our family! I was also amazed to hear a rendition in the 1995 UK TV series "Our Friends in the North", which linked the song to the Jarrow March.
