Subject: Bernie Parrie's Man of the Earth
From: Sue M

Does anyone have the tune for "Man of the Earth" by Bernie Parrie please?

I have the words and can partially remember the tune. As I have 40 pole of allotment I would love to be able to sing this to the correct tune at my local folk session.

There was a thread on this excellent song about a year ago. One of our more computer literate fraternity can probably dig it up for us. You might also get lucky and find a copy of one of the albums somewhere. I believe Vin Garbutt did the song too.

Not a song I've ever sung, so there may be scope for corrections here, but this is how I remember it.

Mick

Ev-'ry/day as I/ go through the/ old shan-ty/ town where the/ sheds and al-/lot-ments all/ stand-/-
I/see the old/man of the/land/ with a/ rake or a/ spade in his/ hand-/ -
And he's/ there in all/ weat-her in/ sun-shine and/ rain, I/ hes-i-tate/ as I go/ past-/-
Is he/ hap-py or/ sad with his/ task/, oh I/ have-n't the/ time for to/ ask.

Chorus:
A/ man of the/ earth, a/ man of the/ soil
In his/ lone-ly al-/lot-ment he/ la-bours and/ toils
He's/ not much to/ do since he/ turned six-ty/ five
So he's/ took to his/ gar-den to/ keep him a-/live
It's/ his on-ly/ joy and his/ pride-/-//
