Most people would be more familiar with the version by the group Wet,Wet,Wet, The Troggs sang it back in 1968.

Patches by Dickey Lee ... a song that tells the story of teenage lovers of different social classes whose parents forbid their love. The girl drowns herself in the "dirty old river." The singer concludes: "It may not be right, but I'll join you tonight/ Patches I'm coming to you." Because of the teen suicide theme, the song was banned by a number of radio stations. However, it sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc.

And a great song it was, and incredibly, the "B" side of the 45 was even better, A Fork in the Road.
