Hard Life on the Cut by Ian Campbell It's a hard life for a girl on the cut Doing the work of a full grown man Pushing a barrow and shoveling the coal Plenty of work on her hands It's a hard life for a wife on the cut Spending her days with a bargee man Sharing his work through the good times and bad Coping as well as she can It's a hard life for a mum on the cut Rearing her family the decent way Mending and cooking and keeping them clean Nothing but work all the day recorded by Ian Campbell Folk Group SOF
