The Ballad of Eric Olthwaite

There was a lad from Denley Moor

From Castle Street he came

He made this dark town proud again

Eric Olthwaite was his name.

Chorus:

Oh Eric, Eric Olthwaite

You're the one they're singing for

Eric, Eric Olthwaite,

The King of Denley Moor

Oh, he told the world of shovels

to be found in Denley Moor

Of the rainfall that was static here

At twenty-eight point four.

Chorus

Having checked the rainfall average

From the rain gauge he would run to

See Howard Molson put his shovel

Next to the other one.

Chorus

(Palin & Jones)
