Subject: RE: Lyr Req: A working chap - mike waterson
Hello Chaps..
Cue material incoming...

I recorded Mike W back in 1992? (ish) whilst working on a sampler CD fo "No Masters" record label...

Working Chap was one of several songs recorded unaccompanied that night..(Claret was involved)

None of the songs recorded that night has seen the light of day since then.
When PJD started in 2000, Mike kindly gave us permission to recorde it. (I actually think he couldn't remember it!!...Ho Hum!)

To correct the redoubtable Countess...You got some of it wrong kid!!!

Verse 3

From Columbian Kids in slavery

Verse 6

Join the Union, Lead the Van (Vanguard...geddit!)

Nice to know that the song is still remembered..

Looks like a perfect vehicle for disenfranchised workers throughout the world..Get working on new lyrics chaps..and send them to Mike. It might remind him of the original

Cheers to all Ralphie (PJD)
