Spencer the Rover

A man goes for a ramble. He reaches Rotherham. Then he cries and goes home again. No wonder this song has endured for centuries! This version doffs the hat mightily to John Martyn's haunting version but Pete M first heard it from the singing of Robin Dransfield, a version which he loves ... along with everything else that either of the Dransfield Brothers has ever done!
