From the singing of Gary and Very Aspey of Lancashire. As they told it, the Lancashire hobo could sleep in "spikes," or work-houses, but he had to do a whole day's work to earn it. And he couldn't spend two nights in the same spike, but sometimes after a whole day of breaking stones there wasn't time to get to the next spike. So then he would have to pay to sleep in a dosshouse (a flophouse - extremely cheap hotel for homeless people).
