Not even sure if that's the right name; but I believe it's by Scowie / Keith Scowcroft (?) & it's something we usually hear around the Fylde singarounds, but not this year. Passing through Heckmondwike on Tuesday put the refrain into my head where it's stuck ever since...

Sean,
It is indeed written by the venerable Scowie. It's published in his book A Countryman's Chronicle Part Four, which is dated 2001.

(It's fellow-Catter Shantyfreak who does a splendid rendition of this verse at singarounds etc. by the way.)

Hope this info helps.

MM

Cheers, MoorleyMan - although it would appear you have me at advantage!

There's a page about Keith Scowcroft at the website of The Fireside Fusiliers.
