G'day Wolfgang,

Well ... It was good the the soul!

I think I just fell under the spell of the wonderful way that Ewan McColl had woven together so many disparate strands into such a compelling narrative. I wish I could construct something so well!

I did miss a few words ... I'm a long way from people with those regional accents - but I have worked with a lot of English construction workers (back in the '60s) ... and occasionally had to do translation duties between two English from different areas!

I hope it all is helpful - I would really like a total transcription, too - but I hope someone else does it.
