Subject: RE: Folklore: Songs, poems etc about ploughmen/boys
Just as an aside to the above - we once sang the song in a pub in Kelk, appropriately called The Chestnut Horse. When we'd finished a huge weatherbeaten old chap, with hand the size of hams, turned round with tears running down his cheeks and said that the song exactly mirrored his experience as a young lad. Wonderful moment!
