GUEST,John Bowden (not a typo!) Origins: Devil to the Cellar in London (9) RE: Origins: Devil to the Cellar in London 03 Nov 20


The song seems to be "The Bakewell Witches" - there's a discussion of the story and the text of the song here: http://places.wishful-thinking.org.uk/DBY/Bakewell/Witches.html , The link says "Words & Music Don Wise 1973", so apparently not traditional (I don't know the song, I just googled "Over thick and over thin" and "song"!).

There's a recording by Mr Gladstone's Bag here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dprR8-X4QEw

It's impossible to say who the couple were that you heard, but maybe somebody will recognise themselves!

Cheers,
John Bowden
