A friend of mine sings it regularly, but he’s not a member here. If I can get in touch with him, I’ll ask him for the lyrics.

We call it Sludger Tom, but I’ve no idea if that’s the correct, official title.

The first verse is:
    If tha'll beer wi me a minute or two, a story I'll relate....
    concerning one called Sludger Tom, and how he met his fate,
    Now, Sludger Tom, he was the son of one called Welly-Bob Green,
    and a finer pair of Dyke men as ever could be seen.

    Chorus: Indeed it's true, it is no lie,
    he never be seen again, for Sludger Tom,
    he dead and gone,....resting in a drain


It's credited to Mo Ogg

Thought it was by Mo Ogg. John Baker, another ex-Scunthorpe Folk Club member, sings it.
