Some time ago a mudcatter whose name I don't recall at the moment asked me for a digital file of Out of the Rain's rendition of "The World Turned Upside Down" (also known as The Diggers Song).

I do now have a digital copy of the song.
Please leave me a personal message with your e-mail address and I will send it to you.

I did not realize it was based on an older ballad.. http://www.lukehistory.com/ballads/worldup.html

here is some background on the Digger community by the
man who wrote this song.

(the song starts at 2:50) This rare concert footage of
Leon Rosselson was recorded in Edinburgh in October 2007.

Said to have been played by the British band on the occasion of Cornwallis's surrender at Yorktown, the turning point in the American Revolution.

A pub name as well? http://mudcat.org/@displaysong.cfm?SongID=4434
