Thread Name: Lyr ADD: The Copper's Song (Hamish Imlach)
Subject: RE: Lyric Request Hamish Imlach Coppers Song says THE COPPER'S SONG is on 2 albums: Hamish Imlach, "The Definitive Transatlantic Collection," 1997; and Hamish Imlach, "Cod Liver Oil and Orange Juice: the Transatlantic Anthology," due to be released June 12, 2006.

I listened to a couple of sound samples, and found it a bit different from what Giok remembers:

...It was 12 o'clock when they found it
Lyin' there just like an 'og.
a badly bashed-about body
Tyre marks scorched up its physog.

They went through the usual procedure
Kicked it to make sure it was dead
Then they went through its pockets and shared out its cash....
