Diddycombe Fair

Album: Diddyness (1967)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a parody of the well known Devon folk song "Widdicombe Fair", in which the refrain "And Uncle Tom Cobbleigh and all" is replaced by "And old dodgy Doddy and all". Comedian Ken Dodd recorded it as an album track; unsurprisingly it features a chorus by the Diddymen. >>
