Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Arkengarthdale Song (Arthur Jackson)
Help people, I cant get any response to this plea for lyrics at all. So for the last time, can ANYONE tell me ANYTHING about a song about a Yorkshire lead miners song called ( I think ) The Groovers Song, with the chorus :-

Here's to the men of the Tees and the Swale To the Niddvale and Wharfe and Arkengarth dale And here's to Charles Bamforth the fellow won't fail To provide work for groovers.

C'mon you Tykes, there's got to be SOMEONE whose heard of it

Happy New Year

Cheers all
