Subject: RE: OK occupations for folksingers.
Weaver, preferably with four looms.
Coalminer (preferably dead).
Ploughboy (jovial or whistling).
Poteen distiller.
Doffer, or mistress of one.
Jolly Jack Tar or sailor come from sea.
Carters have to be jolly too.

You can only be an engine driver (engineer) in the USA, and punching poor defenceless cows has been struck off the list. You can also drive steel, whatever that means, over that side.
