Subject: RE: Folklore: Songs, poems etc about ploughmen/boys
IN comes i the farmers man.
Can't you see the the whip in my hand.
I plough my masters land,
Straigh from end to end withought a baulk or bend.
And to my horses i attend.
Gee up whoa.

They were my lines in the plough play we performed last christmas time
We perform a lincolnshire plough play every year.
We try and use a different play every year, but most texts are very similar,and have got corrupted over time.
