Subject: RE: Modern Day John Henry
Yes; that song fromthe 80's was called "Henry the Accountant"; I happened upon this thread while trying to find it myself. I'd typed in "he laid down his pencil and he died..." which I remember as lyrics from that song.

No idea who wrote it or recorded it, though.
