Thread Name: The Bricklayer's Song
Subject: The Bricklayer's Song
My father played me a very humorous tape this week -- it was a folk song recorded some time ago which told the story of a bricklayer who had a very tough time emptying some bricks from a bucket on a pulley.

I would guess that the original song was recorded in Britain in the early/mid 1900s. Dad's copy came from a radio show hosted by Max Ferguson on the Canadian Broadcastng Corporation (CBC).

I'm trying to find more information about the author of the song and its history.

Thanks! ... peter.paul@geocan.nrcan.gc.ca
