Thread Name: Lyr Req: Pub Crawl / Doin' the Manch (Marsden)
Subject: Lyr Req: Pub Crawl as sung by Ron Akehurst
I had the rare pleasure of hearing Two Black Sheep & a Stallion (UK) at the South Street Seaport Chantey Swap last weekend in NYC. One of the drinking songs that Ron Akehurst led was called "The Pub Crawl" which describes in lurid details a father challenges his son to this traditional competition. I'm no longer sure how many pubs were mentioned, certainly more than a dozen, with the chorus getting longer and longer, and occasionally backtracking to pick up a few that had been missed.

Someone must have the words to this splendid song.

Other members of the group include Martin Bartlett and Peter Outhart.

I believe they've based somewhere around York on the east coast of England.
