I can't read
I can't write
That don't really matter
I come from West Berkshire
And I can drive a tractor

Sung to a Wurzels tune I cant remember

is it really ours??

I nevr knew that Portsmouth claimed it, but as far as I am concerned,it has been Reading's song for many many years.

I, like a previous poster favour "Always on my mind" I don't know of any other club using it, and it has a "sweeping" kind of melody like "You'll never walk alone" has.

I sait in the West stand and though there a a few around me who will join in, you need a strong voice to be able to start songs so we rather rely on the East stand and North stand groups.


Did we get to the bottom of this?


We were singing Molly at Elm Park in 1965, along with Daisy Daisy for Dennis Allen. I also liked "We're the mob from under the clock, tick tock, under the clock. "
But then l was only 13 :-)
