Subject: We have a new Landlord
From: Dave Bryant
Date: 26 Jun 02 - 07:29 AM

Some years ago I heard a song about a new landlord taking over a village pub and making changes. Does anyone have the words or know who wrote it (I think it was a girl) - I can remember quite a lot of bits.

We have a new landlord at our village pub,
And of him we are not very fond.
One of these days, if he don't change his ways,
He'll end up in the old village pond........

........It's an eighteenth century coaching inn,
So the signs say on all the approaches.
'Til the last sign of all, fixed on to the wall,
That one reads "Sorry no Coaches".

........There's a door marked FILLIES,
Which makes us look sillies,
Complete with ye period bolts,
Which often do stick,
If you don't know the trick,
And you have to climb out through the COLTS.

I am looking for lyrics to a song titled "We have a new landlord in our local pub" It is a humourous song that starts,
    we have a new landlord in our local pub,
    but of him we are not all that fond,
    if he dont watch out
    He'll soon get a clout
    and wake up face down in a pond........

It tells how he changes the interior and stops spitting and swearing and so on. Any help please!

It is another gem from the pen of the master humourous writer ( Now sadly retired ) Miles Wootton. I thought I had the words in my pile of'Songs to Learn' but cannot find em.If any of Miles' fans have them can someone post them up please? I have had a look and cant find them in D T.

Here are two more verses:

........It's an eighteenth century coaching inn,
So the signs say on all the approaches.
'Til the last sign of all, fixed on to the wall,
That one reads "Sorry no Coaches".

........There's a door marked FILLIES,
Which makes us look sillies,
Complete with ye period bolts,
Which often do stick,
If you don't know the trick,
And you have to climb out through the COLTS.

Does anyone have the full lyrics?

Well, the Digital Tradition has Public Bar by Miles Wootton, but I don't think it's the song you're seeking. I wonder, though, if Leadfingers was thinking of "Public Bar" instead of the requested song.
There was a thread on this a while back - I'm going to combine the two, so we'll have all the information in the same place.

Public Bar is a different song Joe, and thats another one I have been doing for years.Some one from Brighton will have to dig Miles out of his nest and get the lyrics posted.

It was recorded by Crayfolk on a compilation album in the early 70's (Both sides of the downs?) - I think I still have a copy at home, so I'll see what I can find.

Checked 'Both Sides of the Downs' LP – not on it. I've got some recordings of 'Folk for folk' on BBC Radio Medway back in the 70's – it may be on one of those. I won't give up!

Hi - I came across this thread via Google. It was me that sang this song when I was with Crayfolk in the early Seventies. It's called "18th Century Coaching Inn" and if anyone's still interested I'll type out the lyrics - I can still remember them.

I also remember Dave Bryant! Barry Laing (also of Crayfolk) uswed to refer to him as the Tito Gobi of the Ballspond Road!

I'll watch this thread for a while - if there's anty response I'll post them for you.

Done. The lyrics were correct but incomplete - there are two additional verses which I've posted in the other thread.

It was strange typing them out after all this time and brought back a whole heap of memories of some wonderful people in the 70's folk scene.

Am putting the words up to the Landlord song. Am afraid I've added some words in the last three verses to fit it in to my banjoing etc at
our local folk club then. Anyway here goes.

We've got a new landlord in our village pub
and of him we are not very fond,
and one of these days if he don't mend his ways
he'll end up one dark night in the pond!.

He's put up old beams where no beams ever woz,
and he's cluttered the place up with brass.
With bits of old stables and cart wheels for tables
sez he's trying to give it some class!.

Thers styrups and saddles all over the place
and spurs where y'hang up y'coats.
You sit down to dine with a nose bag of wine
through a door marked fodder and oats!.

He brews huntsmans punch and serves Dick Turpins lunch,
which consists of a pint and a sandwhich,
and the reason he said that he band Bob and Ted
was because he don't hold with bad language.

There's a door that's marked fillys
that makes girls look silly's because of the period bolts,
which frequently stick and if you don't know the trick
you have to climb out through the colts.

Now, when we hold our Saturday folk club up stairs
I usually oblige with a song.
And when ever invited I am quite delighted
to take my old banjo along.

Well, he took just one look as I walked in the door,
and shouted "no 'ippies in 'ere!",
Which offended me slightly so very politely
I gave him a thump round thee ear!.

This cost me ten quid in the magistrates court
and some nasty remarks from the beak.
But here's news for my fans,
although I've been banned,
I'll be at The Golden next week !!.

I used to sing this song 'hundreds' of years ago, which I learned from a friend of mine. Among my usual fare of ballads, it made a change. I came across an old cassette tape I'd recorded for my mum and there were yet more verses to finish off the song. Starting from the last verse of 'GUEST' which is slightly different:

It cost me ten quid in the magistrate's court
and some nasty remarks from the beak.
But the landlord's black eye makes I laugh till I cry,
But there won't be no folk club next week.

Well he don't want our custom and he don't want our trade
There's no profit in serving the locals.
It's them in big cars that 'e wants in 'is bars.
'E refers to us as 'they damn locals.'

Well we sits in 'is bars on a Saturday night
Cuz there's nowhere to drink if we don't.
But if 'e thinks we're going to see him through the winter,
You've got it, we bloody well won't!
