Glad to report sticky ends are off the menu until after Thursday. Alright I'll make a point of singing it on ........... AAAAGGHHH!!!! Sorry, scrub that bit about sticky ends being off the menu.
Richard. I got it off a Ewan MacColl LP. Can't remember where he got it, but it's the standard Scottish version which is taught in the schools up there. That's a fact I didn't realise until I sang it in front of some Scots people one time and wondered why I was getting such funny looks.
Ask your dad. He'll know which one it is.
