The Dubliners-Working Man-Lyrics

Chorus: It's a working man I am I've been down under ground And I swear to God if I ever see the sun Or for any length of time I can hold it in my mind I never again will go down under ground. At the age of sixteen years He quarrels with his peers To vow they'll never see another mine In the dark recess of the mines Where you age before your time And the coal dust lies heavy on your lungs.

Rita MacNeil was a soft-spoken, independent singer-songwriter in the folk, pop and country genres. Her passionate, resonant voice sang with both strength and fragility about overcoming adversity, earning her the loyalty of mainstream pop and country audiences in Canada and abroad. One of several Nova Scotian singers who brought the Cape Breton music scene to national and international prominence in the s and s, she was the top-selling country artist in Canada in and , outselling such American stars as Garth Brooks and Clint Black. MacNeil was born into a large, poor family with alcoholic parents in Cape Breton. Her childhood was made even more difficult by a sexually abusive uncle and the need for repeated surgeries to repair a cleft palate.

At the age of sixteen years I quarrelled with the spears Who swore that never be another one In the dark recess of the mines where you age before your time And the coal dust lies heavy on your lungs. At the age of sixty-four he'll greet you at the door And gently lead you by the arm To the dark recess of the mine He'll take you back in time And tell you of the hardships that were had. WORKING MAN It's a working man I am And I've been down underground And I swear to God if I ever see the sun Or for any length of time I can hold it in my mind I never again will go underground At the age of sixteen years I quarrelled with the spears Who swore that never be another one In the dark recess of the mines where you age before your time And the coal dust lies heavy on your lungs It's a working man I am And I've been down underground And I swear to God if I ever see the sun Or for any length of time I can hold it in my mind I never again will go underground At the age of sixty-four he'll greet you at the door And gently lead you by the arm To the dark recess of the mine He'll take you back in time And tell you of the hardships that were had It's a working man I am And I've been down underground And I swear to God if I ever see the sun Or for any length of time I can hold it in my mind I never again will go underground.

The link below seems to suggest that Rita MacNeil did not write the song originally and I can find no trace of a male covering it!!! Can anyone help? I have a week to find the answer and would appreciate it. I tried that and only came up with this thread. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks again.
