Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Collier Lad (from Annie Cosgrove)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Collier Lad- Annie Cosgrove
Roud has the Blantyre Explosion, collected by A.L. Lloyd from Mrs Cosgrove, but not by Lomax.
He also has the GRESFORD DISASTER Collected from Mrs Cosgrove by Alan Lomax and published on Caedmon TC 1144/Topic 12T 159 (`Jack of All Trades'). No date given
Finally, there is also We're aa jolly wee miner lads, collected from Mrs Cosgrove by Hamish Henderson in 1957. This is a version of Six Jolly Miners.
It doesn't sound to me as though it's any of those. If you can post some of the lyrics, that might help.
