Thread Name: Lyr Req: Barlow Knife
Subject: RE: Barlow Knife - Want lyrics
I used to do this song/tune. All I can add is that for the "B" part of the tune we'd sing
"Barlow handle and a Barlow blade,
Best damn knife that ever was made" (2x)
Barlow is not a brand but rather a style of folding knife, been around forever. You can find one at any hardware store. It has one or two blades. The handle has a long piece of bone or plastic, rounded at one end, and a metal plate (bolster is the technical term), kind of rectangular, at the hinge end of the handle.

Good luck,
Chet W.
