Thread Name: Where are all the black country songs?
Subject: RE: Where are all the black country songs?
Sorry if this is extending this thread beyond its sustainable life but does anyone have the words to a West Midlands version of "Jack of all trades"? Possibly from the Ian Campbell Group (Birmingham's own Scots!). The usual "Gypsy Jack of all trades" (Ewan McColl etc) tune but with places and industries based on Birmingham (City of a thousand trades) and the Black Country. There was also a London version, possibly by the Critics of "Sweet Thames Flow Softly" fame.
