GUEST,cujimmy Origins: Carlton Weavers (not the usual one) (18) Origins: Carlton Weavers 04 Aug 03

I have most of the words of this song -

I am a Carlton Weaver and simple is my plea.
Not to be chained forever to four posts of poverty.
The dark old days of Castlereigh have settled like the blight.
Though the sun shines doon on Glasgow toon it seams eternal night.

I need the verse - "As we came in by Stirling you could hear the clanking chains".

Could anyone tell me about The Carlton Weavers, the year, the history etc.

             thanks - jimmy
