Richard Mellish Lyr Req: Schooldays Over?/Schooldays End (MacColl) (33) RE: Lyr Req: Schooldays Over?/Schooldays End (MacColl) 22 Nov 18

An instance of McColl's skill is his use of different names and terms for the job in the three verses. John is starting as a pitman (Northeast England), Dai as a miner (South Wales), and Jim as a collier (Scotland). But I've heard singers mix these up, having presumably failed to perceive the significance.
