Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Pontypridd Collier in search of his wife
I think Calennig sang
"He gave me a piece of chalk, so that I could walk".
@Splott man can you confirm?
Still doesn't make much sense though.

Regardless of the meaning of the piece of chalk, the essence is that he made his way back to Pontypridd, where his wife had been all the time.
And the total trip would have been far longer than my 50 miles!
