Billy Bragg motivated me to dig out this version by the King of British Skiffle, Lonnie Donegan. Many of Britain's great rockers name Lonnie as a major influence, so he was probably at the root of the British music invasion of America in the 60's   How Good was he?

Some of you might know this song covered by others on into the 60s - but it was Irishman Lonnie Donegan who first hit with 'Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor (on the bedpost overnight) in 1959 - it hit in the US in 1961 and was another one of the songs I drove my parents nuts with singing and playing it.
