Subject: Looking for specific miner song
I received the following question via email and, although there's not much to go on, I thought the collective wisdom of Mudcat might be able to help.

I heard a song the other day by a Irish (maybe he was from Scotland) singer, the song was about a young man who used to stand tall but after working in the mines he was a bent man, the singer had a very heavy brogue and his last name started with a B.
That's all I know and I would really like to find out who sang this song.
