Thread Name: Cotton screwing songs
Subject: RE: Cotton screwing songs
the Scottish bard Robbie Burns (author of Green Grow the Rushes o, etc) abandoned plans to emigrate to Jamaica to work as a bookkeeper on a sugar plantation. Cotton is grown in Jamaica, as well as a sugarcane.

If Burns had gone to Jamaica he might have written some cotton screwing songs.
