Ian HP 'I SANG A SONG'? - Nick Dow - what song??? (10) 'I SANG A SONG'? - Nick Dow - what song??? 13 Jun 99

I have just borrowed from a friend a cassette of an old Nick Dow album - without album title, song title or any credits! On it is a stunner of a song with the repeated refrain, "I sang me song . . .", the gist of it being that in various incarnations the singer sang about a battle he was killed in, sang love songs for a suitor, sang about being a pit worker, loom worker, etc.. It mentions Hastings in the first verse. It's a wonderful capturing of the spirit of traditional music - but what is the song??? Who wrote it??? What is this album??? Help!!!
