Many thanks for all your contributions ~ I have spoken to David on the dog and bone and had long chat ~ he teaches flyfishing! However he did write ! I can hew boys, I can hack it out ~ picked up and sang by Johnny Collins, Jim Mageean, Wilsons and a number of of others, David lived in Bristol so accent is whatever you make of it ~ Mawkin recently recorded it ~ of note The Unthanks are singing Magpie also written by David and acknowldeged as such 3 part harmony

Magpie I believe was a childrens tv programme and the song was the weekly theme tune ~ I am not sure he got his Royalties, er rum
