Dryblower’s Verses.




Aliens, The
“Ave Maria”
Blind, The
Bricks of Beer
Christmas Camp
Confession, The
Cooking and Patching Their Dungaree Pants
Devout Lover, The
Doctor’s Story, The
Dossin’ Outer Doors
Fighting in France
Gimme the Ground
His Quest
In the Sand
’Is ’Arp
It Appears
Leah Fouracre
List to Port, A
Lodes that Under-lie
Look at his Left Lapel
Mill Point
Mrs. Flannagan’s Frock
My Love
My Son
Nickin’ In
On Nights Like These
Out Back
Pints that I’ve Refused
Rhymes our Hearts Can Read, The
Saddest and the Gladdest
Shicker. I s’pose
Smiths, The
Some Girls Ago
Sport, The
Storm, The
Teach ’em to Shoot
Tell us, Little Toad
“Thy Will be Done”
Week Away, A
What Next?
Why Can’t the Kids be Always Young?
Wot’s Yours?
Wot Won the Larst?
