Not meaning to deter anyone from buying the book - here's the complete lyrics, transcribed from listening to the "Rough and Wrigley" album (not sure of the bits in italics).
THE MANCHESTER RECRUITS
Cold and gray on a market day and the people stood around,
When a band of men from Scotland came to recruit for the Stuart bound
Some were dressed in the uniform while others they had none,
And a female following all the while was beating on the drum.
Now when they reached the marketplace, it's there they made their stand,
Saying who will join with Bonnie Prince Charles and fight at his right hand.
The people heard the cries they made and quickly gathered round,
And some'd murmur treason, while others made no sound.
Then Tom Siddall the blacksmith's son came forth to where they stood,
His father at Sacheverell had fought and shed his blood,
And when that they had welcomed him, the shilling in his fist,
Tom Chadwick and Tom Deacon came and cried we will enlist.
James Bradshaw then the merchant's son gave off that he would too,
His friends and brothers followed him and swore they would be true,
The papers signed, the task was done, and still the day was new,
Eighty men for Charlie's sake bid Manchester adieu.
Wrigley's album notes:
I wrote this for a documentary about the Jacobites, for which Will Darlington and Rowena, his wife, wrote the script. This episode is memorable because no one thought that a bunch of Scots could walk into Manchester and start recruiting for the Stuart crown, but they did, and came away with 80 men.
