Herga Kitty Lyr Add: Five Pounds (Les Sullivan) (6) RE: Lyr Add: Five Pounds 17 Jun 20

When I started singing this with Mick Pearce, in the latter part of the 1990s, he changed the last verse, so the version I have from then is

"Then there was me, two years Iíd been away from Englandís shore
I had to quit the ship me boys for I could take no more
But I hadnít gone but five miles on when pressmen ambushed me
But no five pounds was shared around when I showed my ticket of leave."

I've had fun since then spotting who learnt the song from our CD and who learnt it from Les's original....
