Professional Leggers Written by Brian Langtry and Ray Bradshaw Copyright Bridge Music. All rights protected. Professional leggers arm bands to prove it Cold and dark and terrible damp 30 tons yer legs to move it The only light is a feeble lamp It's a way to earn a living 12 hours a day back breaking If you slip from the plank you'll be no more But you'll earn the money you're making If you slip from the plank you'll be no more But you'll earn the money you're making Two hours of darkness end to end Rocks up above so mind your head No time for a break to grab your snap Work till you drop there's no swinging the lead It's a way to earn a living, etc. A wife, a mother, two sons and a daughter Bread on the table and fire in the grate Blessed or cursed I live by the water A life in a factory is something I'd hate It's a way to earn a living, etc. Lyrics and recording kindly provided by Brian Langtry who toured a multi media show called “Coal and Canals” in 2018 and 2019. This is one of the songs written for this show.
