I'll have to dig the album out...'Some Songs' - - Mike Canavan. The chorus goes:- First stop was the Dusty Miller/Then on the Old Boar's Head/Assheton, Britannia and Ring o' Bells/ And then we rolls home to mour beds, brave boys/ Then we rolls home to our beds.

I think the song was called 'Middleton Spree' and doesn't actually feature on the album.

This thread

refers to Middleton Spree in the book of the same name. Unless someone comes up with the lyrics I might have to go and look for it again.

Bear in mind I could be wrong on the title.....but if the above-quoted chorus is there then the quest is over...

I read the title & thought it was about a pub crawl seeking out lasses with delectable derrieres!

Hi Harry!

"Is that you my dearest Harry, returned to me again?
Many days have I lamented, and many a night made moan,
No joys nor comforts have I had since from me you've been gone."
:-)

I can't help with the Mike Canavan song, but will have to try a pub crawl around Middleton one day since I've recently discovered an ancestor of mine ran a building yard there in the mid-19th century, and according to some family accounts he knew the pubs extremely well!

Matthew
