GUEST,Christine Origins: Coulter's Candy (49) RE: MUS ADD: Coulter's candy 15 Nov 05


I have a memoir from my great grandmother where she gives a description of the man who sang this song at the railway station as she travelled to Galashields. She described him thus: "At the railway station a man called Coulter met the trains. He was a peculiar man, wore a number of waistcoats and sold candy and sang this song as he walked along the platform: ally bally, ally bally bee...etc
she then gives three verses of the song...
