Thread Name: Lyr Req: Down the Dark Alley
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Down the Dark Alley
I know the song as ---Down the Back Alley and understand that originally it was a Liverpool Street Song athough many extra verses ( some incredibly crude ) have now been added

The verses I remember are
I met her in white - she said it's cold tonight

blue - my baby's due

red - my baby's dead

check - I broke her pretty ( other words sometimes used ) neck
black - she won't be coming back

If I remember anymore i will post later
