"It's a song I used to do quite a lot…originally from a recording by Harry Cox and he just sings two verses, so there's millions of other versions, you know, it's fairly well collected, and lots of people have sung it, I just like the way he did it so that's what tipped me into doing it. I got a couple more verses, so I do four now, and I do it with the melodeon. I do one or two others that I learnt from him. Harry Cox's repertoire was massive, encyclopaedic, you know, hundreds. He used to pay people for songs, if he heard someone singing a song in a pub, it was obviously acceptable to say, if I give you a couple of bob or buy you a pint, can I have that song? It's interesting isn't it? That songs spread that way."
