Hello pals.! Welcome to Week 27 of #lexieschain. Dis week was down to MaggieTKat to make da decishun, so let's see wot ideas come in dis week:

Dolly Parton singin Littl Sparrow cos Dolly famussly from Tennesse and typist werkin for record company when this song released in uk so he recall it well cos it happen his first week on da job...

I iz gonna continue Coal Mining theme so my link iz Lee Dorsey - Working in the Coalmine.

Billy Idol Sweet 16 cos it has 16 in the title and mums cousin saw him play in Nashville, Tennessee!

@I am Fuzzy
sixteen tons is quite heavy, on the opposite scale the rolling stones -'2000 light years from home' sounds a lot lighter...ahem

@bvfeyj (Tucker)
Dis week me pick is "Gentle on My Mind" by Glen Campbell. Why? In 1967 it was da hit which launched Glen Campbell as a solo artist. Den in 1975 he recorded "Ernie Sings & Glen Picks" wif Tennessee Ernie Ford! Dat da link!

Erie Canal by Pete Seeger because it is also a tribute to heroic toil and the tune is very similar.

I'm going wiv working hard an trying to earn money to have a better life so I choose Money Money Money by Abba coz it says I work all night, I work all day to pay the blls I have to pay, … All the things I could do, If I had a little money, it's a rich man's world.
