Subject: Lyr Req: ploughboy song by brian cookman
From: GUEST,skippy

hi all,
the song starts with lines
"I don't want to be a ploughboy"
follow the furrow is not for me.
I've done that classic thing of buying a new stereo without a turntable & I have brian's folk rock opera (as he once called it)on a piece of circular plastic! Help.
Anyone got the words typed out?

Skippy ...hope you are still visiting and that you are still looking for these words ....i knew they would turn up eventually.



I don't want to be a ploughboy

I don't want to be a ploughboy
Follow the furrow is not for me
Living with sheep and cows, boy
Well, that's no life for me
And to spend and end all my days
The same through ages past
I don't want to be a ploughboy
Is that too much to ask?

I don't want to be a ploughboy
I know I could be something more
I f someone would show me how, boy
I could be a star I'm sure
But you say I should know my place
And be thankful for my task
But I don't want to be a ploughboy
Is it too much to ask?

So I'm not going to be a ploughboy
And follow the furrow just like my Dad
I think the time is now, boy
There's good times to be had
And I'll say goodbye to the plough and harrow
Bid farewell to the soil at last
Cos, I'm not going to be a ploughboy
And it's not too much to ask

I have the author/singer as Brian Cookman and I know the song came from a production but can't remember what, where or when.

Has anyone else got any info?????
