Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Back in Durham Gaol (Jez Lowe)
Three men went a-hunting, nothing could they find
They came across Durham Gaol, and that they left behind.
The Englishman says, "it's Durham Gaol."
The Scotsman, he says, "Nae."
Geordie says, "it's a lodging house
Where yeh dinna have to pay."
Well, look at that, now,well , look at that now.
Tillie pa la pa la pa lay
Tillie pa la pa lay.

Sung by an English chap at a Pete Seeger concert, Central Park, New York City, summer, 1966, during a rainstorm.
