One of only two folk songs I know of that mention Croydon.
And in fact the other one isn't really a folk song, it was a broadside with a credited author, 'All Hail this Grand Day - the Croydon Canal'.
Though I imagine there are probably some broadsides
Some good tunes titled after Croydon though, 'Croydon Fair' being one
