Possibly by Steve Tilston. I recall Tim Pinton singing it at Fleet FC about 20 years ago. Can't seem to find it on any album notes or via Google.

Is this an example of "going postal"?
Why "postal" anyway? Are all US postal employees as nutty as Cliuff Clavin in "Cheers"? Do they really have a higher percentage of "gun rage" perpetrators than the general public?

I did sing the song at Fleet FC, solo and with the band "Toffs". The song was by John Bryant and was on his album which I bought I think about 35-40 years ago. He played at Folk Clubs, nice singer and guitarist and always great songs including "Rock and Roll Star" and "Woodbine Annie".

This is the lyrics I sang, may not be exactly the same as the original


When I got home just yesterday, found a note left on my bed.
It said: 'I've taken all your money, friend, and I've smoked all your cigarettes.

'When I knocked, the door was opened by pretty eyes of blue.
And I must admit, I liked the look of it, so I stole your woman too.

'Well, thank you, friend,' the letter said, 'and I've got to complement your taste.
I found your rye and I drank it dry; it was too damned good to waste.

'When I knocked, I said, "Good morning," like milkman often do,
And a voice replied: "Honey, come inside," so I stole your woman too.'

I'm going to shoot me a milkman
With his voice as smooth as silk
I'm going to shoot me a milkman
Took my woman and forgot my milk.

[Instrumental verse followed by:]

I don't care if he takes my wine,
And my woman don't back,
But I'll shoot that bum if my milk don't come.
I could never take my coffee black.

So I'm going etc.....


Incidentally the Fleet Club closed but then a revived version was at the Windmill Ewshot for many years, recently moved to The Old Ford at Farnborough which was where the Farnborough FC was in the 1960's.
