Caving Songs

http://www.harmonieii.co.uk/caving/cavingsongs.html A collection of Caving Songs which were regularly sung during the 1950's and 60's in the Hunters Lodge Inn near Priddy on the Mendip Hills of Somerset. Most of them are genuine folk songs which were composed wholly or partially by cavers about exploits by other cavers. Others are verses about caving or cavers added to bawdy songs which may have originated in Rugby clubs or the like. Many are very rude so be warned if you are of a delicate disposition!
