I have heard a song which is canal related and, I think, called chestnuts or chestnuts in autumn or something along those lines. I am pretty sure it is not a traditional song but I am afraid I dont know who wrote it. I heard it in a small session and I did ask the singer and she told me all of these details but I failed to wriote them down immediately. Does this ring bells with anyone?

When the Chestnut Bloom's in Flower by David Blagrove (1983)

It's five in the morn, an hour before dawn,
And the frost is riming the bank.
I'm down in the engine hole dipping the sump,
And pumping the oil to the tank.
Then it's swing on the handle, compression taps drop,
And let her run up to full power.
It's just the same way on a morning in May
When the chestnut bloom's in flower.

When the chestnut bloom's in flower,
When the chestnut bloom's in flower,
It's just the same way on a morning in May
When the chestnut bloom's in flower.

When the Chestnut
