Thread Name: Lyr Req: Following the Old 'Oss (Tony Deane)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Following the Old 'Oss (Tony Deane)
I've a few little differences from Guest John's set - and some details of my bit of paper seem to indicate that it was copied from a written or printed source, not transcribed from audio. Most of them are fairly insignificant, but for what it's worth . . .

(Sorry - can't find any way to underline the actual differences!)

V1 - winter's wailing (did they go whaling from Padstow?)
    - summer is a-coming today

Chorus And we're following (throughout)

V2 - And we'll rise . .
   - And remember Merv . .

V3 - And there'll be no cries . . (important, that one)
    - It's the Old Red Horse . . (why "horse" when I have "'oss" everywhere else? - makes me think it was Cut-and-Pasted)

    - Will bring us . .
