Lazy Sunday - The Men they Couldnt Hang

Lazy sunday and top of the pile this week is a fantastic single from The Men they Couldn't Hang. A tale of 2 people on either side of the picket lines during the miner's strike. Really like the way the violin drives the song along and "Rip that Shirt off you" always went down well live

Hey there Tommy shall we meet again with the morning wet with dew

Me at the gates of the colliery and you in your shirt of blue
