Thread Name: Lyr Req: Jack Ashton (Keith Marsden)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Jack Ashton
Ed asked Ian Robb the same question about the same part of the song! I think I've got this right...

...playing soccer at the Rec (recreational area/field/or some such)

...and his bowling with a corky could be gory (corky is slang for a cricket ball)

If you're interested in more of Keith Marsden's songs, Dave Mallinson Publications in the UK (you can do a web search for the address) carries a book called "Picking Sooty Blackberries," which is a collection of many of his songs.

Cheers and happy singing (or listening)!
