GUEST,Susan-MArie Lyr Req: Jolly Plough Boys (16) RE: Jolly Plough Boys 29 Jun 04

I've read a number of the "Ploughboy" threads and this seemed to be the best one in which to ask this question: What is it about being a ploughboy that has generated so many songs?

I sing "Plooboy laddies" with my band, and would like to be able to explain why "the plooboy ladies are all the go" (all the rage).   From some of the discussion above it appears that being a ploughboy was a little like being a cowboy? Rugged, free-spirited, tamer of great beasts (horses)?

ANy insight would be greatly appreciated.
