I heard Bernie Forkin sing this one at Billinge, but by the time I got round to asking him for the words, he'd lost it again. He got it from somewhere, but couldn't remember where. Anyone out there know it?

Could be a great parody of "From A Distance"

It is a great parody. Contains the immortal lines (referring to old fish bones):
    Cod are watching us
    From a dustbin.
I believe it came from someone Wolverhampton way, but wouldn't swear to that. Bermie was rather vague about where he got it.

Sounds something that Stanley Accrington would do

Both Joy Buzzards ( with bedpan mandolin) and Trashcan Joe ( with bathtub steel guitar and dustbin lid banjo)now feature in the eclectic skiffle/jugband section of my record collection.
Great stuff!
Trash metal?

Actually I wrote it myself.

I did a lot of parodies in those days usually they only had a "life" of 2/3 performances as many were topical. The one performed most was probably "The houghton weavers" which went to the "Work of the weavers" tune.

I think I remember that one Bernie - 'If it wasn't for the Houghton bloody Weavers'? If it is the same one, I think Stve Chatterley still airs it occasionaly as well.
