I hear a female voice and the words "(something) and steel." Very thin evidence, I know, but I've heard it recently on a folk station.

Richard Dobson wrote a song about guitars called 'A Piece of Wood and Steel', it's been covered a few times but I don't recall hearing a woman singing it - might be worth googling the title though.

Could it possibly have been "steal"? (Not that I have any suggestions for either.)

Cranedriver by Julie Matthews from the Radio Ballad The Song Of Steel. Possibly.

"With a gentle touch upon the wheel
Make no mistakes with red hot steel"

The Fagans' (Oz group) recording of Colin Dryden's 'Factory Lad' is a possibility:

Turning steel, how do you feel,
As in the chuck you spin?
If you felt like me you'd roll right out
And never roll back in

--Stewie.

Could it be ''Rolling Silent Steel'' about the loss of steel making.
A song I have heard and a friend who knows and I think, mind think only was wrote by Rick Hudleston.

Their English steel we could disdain,
Secure in valour's station,
But English gold has been our bane --
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation!

Another possibility is one of Graeme Miles many observations on the steel industry around Teeside.

DRIFT FROM THE LAND
(Graeme Miles)

All the young fellows have gone to the factories,
To learn a new trade making iron and steel,
When they pickup their wages they wonder how ever,
They managed on the money they made in the field.

And it's all the young fellows have gone to the city,
All the young fellows have gone to the town,
Where they'll be earning nearly double the money,
They'll ever earn at the harrow and plough.

Down in the valley the sound of a tractor,
Young Jimmy Dickinson sits at the wheel,
But this time next week he'll be in some hot foundry,
Casting the iron or rolling the steel.

Well down in the hedgerow Billy Dowson is working,
The blade of his sickle glints in the bright sun,
But in less than an hour he'll pack up his gear,
His last day of working the land will be done.

Well you can't blame young men for throwing the towel in,
They'll be much better of making iron and steel,
But the drift from the land it will always continue,
Till the money gets better for the man in the field.
