Jobs and Occupations

I don’t remember doing this subject. If we did, it was years forever ago. 😸

There should be a lot of these songs, titles or lyrics with jobs or occupations, etc.

 

Journeyman - Blackmore’s Night

 

Journeyman - Iron Maiden

 

From Wikipedia —- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Journeyman

The term "journeyman" was originally used in the medieval trade guilds. Journeymen were paid daily and the word "journey" is derived from journée, meaning "whole day" in French. Each individual guild generally recognised three ranks of workers: apprentices, journeymen, and masters. A journeyman, as a qualified tradesman, could become a master and run their own business, but most continued working as employees.[3]

Held a general's rank

Hi @MaVolta !

Great topic!

Always loved this song:

Working in the Coal Mine by Lee Dorsey

  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7ND17Zf68s

A few verses:

Working in the coal mine

Going down, down, down

Working in the coal mine

Whoop, I wanna sit down

 

'Cause I work every morning

Hauling coal by the ton

But when Saturday rolls around

I'm too tired to have any fun

 

Take care! 🏒☃️☮️~Allen 🌈🎿❄️🏂
