Max Johnson Folklore: Songs, poems etc about ploughmen/boys (50) RE: Folklore: Songs, poems etc about ploughmen/boys 27 May 13


Threadbare Consort used to sing several ploughing songs.

The Painful Plough:
They must have bread and biscuit, rice pudding, flour and peas
To feed our jolly sailors as they sail o'er the seas
And every man that stands here must own to what is true:
They cannot sail the ocean without the painful plough.


My favourite though, will always be the well-known 'Ox-Plough Song.
