Carthy and Swarbrick
What Time Is It Eccles?

Martin Carthy and David Swarbrick singing
Peter Sellers' arrangement of Sammy Fain's
wonderful little song
"I haven't told her, she hasn't told me"
 is without equal in the folk revival
One thing they were never known for
was vocal duets.so this rarity from
Danish TV may come as a surprise
filmed Dave Swarbrick's flat, in 1967 
the recording is a one-off.

Byker Hill
A traditional Northumbrian song sung by Martin and Dave
on the BBC show Once More With Felix in 1968

an interview recorded in1988 for Northern Arts (BBC)

Brass Monkey - Jolly Tinker
Cambridge Folk Festival 1982

"I haven't told her, she hasn't told me"
 
I've got a clock that wakes me
every morning for my day
I've got a corn that gives me 
warning when it's  going to rain.
I've got a dream that's coming true,
I've got a sweety in view
 
I'm as happy as can be, 'cause I've
fallen in love with a girl you see
I haven't told her, she hasn't told me
But we know it just the same.
 
Saturday night on her settee
Oh what a time there's going to be
I haven't told her, she hasn't told me
But we know it just the same.
 
She still calls me Mister
But she won't, I know she won't
After I've kissed her
 
I've got a feeling soon there'll be
One little, two little, possibly three
I haven't told her, she hasn't told me
But we know it just the same.

Byker Hill

Byker Hill and Walker Shore, my lads
Collier lads for ever more, my boys
Byker Hill and Walker Shore, my lads
Collier lads for ever more.
 
If I had another penny I would
have another gill and
I would make the piper play
The Bonnie Lass of Byker Hill
 
My Ginny she sits ower late up,
my Ginny she sits ower late up
My Ginny she sits ower late up
between the pint pot and the cup 
It's down the pits we'll go, my
laddies, and down the pits we'll
go, my marras
We'll try our will and use our
skill to cut them ridges down
below
 
My Ginny she is never near,
my Ginny she is never near
And when I call out, Where's
my supper, she orders up
another pint of beer
 
When first I came into the
dirt I had no trousers nor pit
shirt And now I'm gettin' two
or three, Walker Pit's done
well for me
 
Hey Ginny come home to
your little baby, hey Ginny
come home to your little baby
Hey Ginny come home to your
little baby with a pint of beer
all under your arm.
 
The poor coal cutter gets two
shillings, the deputy gets
half a crown andthe overman
gets five and sixpence, lads,
just for riding up and down.
 
Geordie Johnson had a pig
and he hit it with a shovel
and it danced a jig
All the way to Byker Hill
he danced the Elsie Marley
