Thread Name: will there be no _____ in heaven (songs)
Subject: RE: will there be no _____ in heaven
The version of this song I know was reputedly writen by a gypsy called Georgey Biddel who I met in a pub at Stow on the Wold horse fair in the mid 80s
The word are very similar to Ditas but with some of the words in Romany. Where did you get this version from Dita?

The song was taken up by New age Travellers and the words reformed to be relevant to the struggle against the Thatcherist police state to maintain the rights to hold a free festival at stongehenge.

Will there be any convey in heaven
is there a heavenly national trust
saying you can't have your festival here boy
park your bus up and leave it to rust.

a true folk song...

Where do you think
