Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Ballad of Mini Cooper (Archie Fisher)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Ballad of mini Cooper
As far as I know, it was written by Archie Fisher. I first heard it in the mid/late 1960s, when I was still at school but had started going to the Herga Folk Club and we had the High Level Ranters as guests, including of course, Archie's brother-in-law, Colin Ross. It was Tom Gilfellon who sang it - I think he'd been Archie's navigator on some rallies.
We had a folk club session at school, a few months after that, and I sang The Ballad of Mini-Cooper. I don't think our music teacher appreciated it.
