Subject: RE: Lyr Req: A working chap - mike waterson
I finally got the Patterson Jordan Dipper CD Flat Earth today - thanks for pointing to it. However, I think the words in the first verse are a bit different than Countess Richard transcribed:

When I was a working chap once upon a time,
I was a tailor bold and I made these goods of mine.
We cut the suits to fit the cloth, it was sometimes meat but most times broth.
We quickly learned our caps to doff
Sweet Jesus, what a crime.

I've added this to my Watersons website as Working Chap.
