Thread Name: Tune Req: poverty knocks
Subject: RE: Tune Req: poverty knocks
This song has a rythmic metre and the knocking is part of the song

Not sure how Jim Moray sings it and some versions are not in keeping to my mind!

The majority of the Northern ones I have heard are in my opinion most apt and not 'happy clappy' whatever you mean so I dont know what you are alluding to pudlover!

Put together by Tommy Daniels from Dewsbury/Batley and assisted by Dorothy Fawthrope who helped him remember the verses

These verses and tune can be found in Bert LLoyds, Songs in England (or similar) long out of print

Best recorded version sung by Roy Harris
