Subject: RE: Lyr Req: UK: NW canal songs?
What about the one about the Manchester Canal? I think it's officially called 'The Mary' but it starts:

The Union Flag is flying o'er the company's wharf and quay
And Mary of Dublin lying unloading her praties today

ch
so come weavers and winders and tanners one and all
Give your support unto the board of the Manchester Canal

Haven't got time to look it up in the DT (think it wasn't there last time I looked) but if you need the rest of the words, I can write them out but not got time at the moment
