GUEST,Observer Don Bilston - Fireman's Song (31) RE: Don Bilston - Fireman's Song 19 Aug 18

Is that the one that starts:

If ever you see a train go by
Or hear the engine whistle cry
Think of the man on the old foot-plate
Shovelling coal the Driver's Mate

A loco fireman is me grade
Boiling water is me trade
The Driver thinks he runs the show
But if I'm not there the train won't go.

If so it is years since I've heard it! Thanks for the memory nudge.
