Thread Name: Lyr Req: The 37 Bus
Subject: The 37 Bus
Running on from Cod Liver Oil and the Orange Juice, recorded by Hamish Imlach - on the same 1970s album he sung The 37 Bus. I have unfortunately lost the record, (which featured Robin Williamson of the ISB on whistle, I think.) Anyway, bone fragments of The 37 Bus are lodged in the brain. Can someone please ease the pain by supplying the whole song? And who wrote it? The Glasgow Corporation bus in question connected two toughish areas - Springburn and Castlemilk, and as a beat cop, back in those days in Sprinburn, the words have great nostalgia for me - especially, well on in the fight, when "by that time 40 polis hats hud floated doon the stank."
