Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Pontypridd Collier in search of his wife
When Mick and Pat (Calennig) used to sing this, at the line "He lent me a piece of chalk, so that I could walk..." Mick would swipe the soul of his shoe. I always assumed the shoes were in need of repair after a long trek, and this somehow helped.
They are the words he collected.
I'll ask Mick for clarification when I see him on Wednesday.
