'Button up and aye be cheery and tak a dram afore/before you go'


A The Springhill Disaster (Peggy Seeger)

B Singing of Martin Carthy I believe

C The Oak Tree, Richmond, North Yorkshire. Now knocked into houses. I'm waiting for the blue plaque.

D 1964 best guess

E 19/20 Just left school and got a job (you could do that then)

F Clearly well past it. I've got all the years in, all the stamps on my card, do I really need to keep turning out?

G Yes as with all songs when the occasion suggests it
