Thread Name: Songs about Whitby??!
Subject: RE: Songs about Whitby??!
I used to sing a song called Whitby bells about the bells ringing underwater -I cant remember who wrote it but it was a very good song, and I did a terrible thing relating to it! I turned up at the local club in Amersham and sang it ,not realizing that the chap who wrote it was the guest - I'll never forget it. It starts something like. In 1558 by Henry the eighth every abbey in the land was plundered - (the date's surely wrong)- however does anyone remember it well enough to add the rest of the words.
