[1966:] Also from a radio documentary by Ewan MacColl, 'The Big Hewer'. The inevitable end-point of a boy growing up in a mining village was to go down the local pit. Ewan manages to express something here of the accepted, because inevitable, symbol of manhood. (Norman Buchan, notes 'The Fisher Family')
As far as I can make out the words Ian sent are the ones sung by Dick Gaughan. Thanks, Ian! - Susanne
