Subject: RE: Origins: Who Wrote Dalesman's Litany?
mmmmmmmm reading the post Wolfgang 01....the dialect seems bloody strange to me. Coming from the North Yorkshire farming community where dialect was spoken at the market on market day seems to be a bit of a mongrel verse, Hull!!!! 'ull 'n' 'ell, bit of North Yorkshire bit of south yorkshire a bit of wessy. As I read it I can't place the accent at all. Sadly I can't remember the dialect much but I do remember my dads regular line...."As gan gitten gutorcs" It's a great song but should be sung in ones mother tongue or brogue otherwise it isn't real.
