Subject: RE: Help: Sea-faring songs go Oilfield??
Like Sledge, I also work in the oil industry and would like to thank Wyo Woman for the warning.

Have you ever noticed? but most industries/trades/etc, that have "folk songs" associated with them have all gone down the pan???

Merchant Navy, coal mining, fishing, spinning and weaving, to name a few.

Relating to the oil industry - Men of Worth has to be the ultimate thin end of the wedge! - any song in this day and age that relies on Lah-la-lah-la-lah's for lyrics can't be a serious contender, so our second oil boom might just last long enough after all - All of us who experienced the first one have all promised not to piss this one up against the wall.

Cheers,

Bill.
