Thread Name: Lyr Req: Shores of Old Blighty (Graeme Miles)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The shores of old blighty we're leav
Being pedantic but could we please spell the name properly .
The gentleman in question is GRAEME MILES
The song was written about the start of 2years National Service which Graeme spent in Germany
Supposedly on manouvers but according to Graeme the majority if the time was spent peeling potatoes .. leaving him with lots of opportunities for song writing
