Celeb Myer 03:01
Caleb Meyer, he lived alone In them hollarin' pines And he made a little whiskey for himself Said it helped to pass the time Long one evening in back of my house, Caleb came around And he called my name 'til I came out with no one else around Caleb Meyer, your ghost is gonna wear them rattlin' chains. but when I go to sleep at night, Don't you call my name Where's your husband, Nellie Kane Where's your darlin gone? Did he go down off the mountain side and leave you all alone? Yes, my husband's gone to Bowlin' Green to do some business there. Then Caleb threw that bottle down and grabbed me by my hair. Caleb Meyer, your ghost is gonna wear them rattlin' chains. but when I go to sleep at night, Don't you call my name He threw me in the needle bed, across my dress he lay he held my hands above my head and I commenced to pray. I cried My God, I am your child send your angels down Then feelin' with my fingertips, the bottle neck I found I drew that glass across his neck as fine as any blade, and I felt his blood pour fast and hot around me where I laid. Caleb Meyer, your ghost is gonna wear them rattlin' chains. But when I go to sleep at night, Don't you call my name Caleb Meyer, your ghost is gonna wear them rattlin' chains. But when I go to sleep at night, Don't you call my name

As I went out one May morning One May morning betime I met a maid from home had strayed Just as the sun did shine What makes you rise so soon my dear Your journey to pursue Your pretty feet they tread so sweet Strike off the morning dew I’m going to feed my father’s flock His young and tender lambs That over hills and over dales Lie waiting for their dams O stay! O stay! you handsome maid And rest a moment here For there is none but you alone That I do love so dear How gloriously the sun doth shine How pleasant is the air I’d rather rest on a true love’s breast Than any other where For I am thine and thou art mine No man shall uncomfort thee We’ll join our hands in wedded bands And married we will be

It's in the evening after dark when the Bit coin miner creeps to work, With his skin tight jeans and vintage shirt, There goes the Bitcoin miner. Enter Tor and down he goes, (Tor is the web browser) Along silk road that lies below, (Silk road is the ebay of drugs) hash and speed and lsd Accepting crpto-currenCY. The darkweb is a terrible place, Drugs and guns fill cyberspace, The FBI find it hard to trace The sneaky bitcoin miner. And even down on the trading floor, they promise eighty points or more Exchange your pounds for wealth galore You dirty bitcoin miner Consider being an angry blogger, stalk your foes with a keyboard-logger, Take great care or come a cropper ..(Watch some porn and stroke your todger…. live version!) You dirty bitcoin miner. So buy your currency while you may, before the powers take it away Fight until judgement day You dirty bitcoin miner It's in the evening after dark that the bitcoin miner creeps to work, With his skintight jeans and vintage shirt, There goes the bitcoin miner. There goes the bitcoin miner. There goes the bitcoin miner.

Black fly 03:55
'Twas early in the spring when I decide to go For to work up in the woods in north Ontar-i-o And the unemployment office said they'd send me through To the Little Abitibi with the survey crew [Chorus] And the blackflies, the little blackflies Always a blackfly, no matter where you go I'll die with a blackfly pickin' my bones In north Ontar-i-o-i-o In north Ontar-i-o [Verse 2] The man Black Toby was the captain of the crew And he said "I'm going to tell you boys, what we're going to do "They want to build a power dam, we must find a way "For to make the Little Ab flow around the other way" [Chorus] With the blackflies, the little blackflies Always a blackfly, no matter where you go I'll die with a blackfly pickin' my bones In north Ontar-i-o-i-o In north Ontar-i-o

Navvy Boots 03:34
I'm a bold English navvy that fought on the line The first place I met was Newcastle-on-Tyne I've been tired, sick and weary through working all day To a cut down by the hillside I'm making my way Well, I first had my supper and then had a shave For courtin' this fair maid I highly prepared The stars in the sky and the moon it shone down And I head for the road with my navvy boots on I knocked at my love's window, my knock she did know And out of her slumber she wakened so slow I knocked her again and she said, "Is that John?" And I quickly replied, "With my navvy boots on" So she opened the window and then let me in 'Twas to her bedroom she landed me then The night being warm and the blankets rolled down So I jumped into bed with my navvy boots on Well then early next morning at the dawn of the day Says I to my true love, It's time to go away Sleep down, sleep down, you know you've done wrong For to sleep here all night with your navvy boots on So I bent down my head with a laugh and a smile Saying, What could I do, love, in that length of time And I know if I done it I done it in fun And I'd do it again with my navvy boots on Well now, six months being over and seven after this This fair pretty maid she grew stout round her waist Then eight months being over, the ninth comes along And she handed me a young son with his navvy boots on So come all you pretty fair maids, take heed what I say And never let a navvy come into your bed For the night being warm and the blankets rolled down Sure he'll jump on your bones with his navvy boots on The above version is as recorded by the Spinners. It is much the same as the version be

A man is in love, how do I know? He came and walked with me, and he told me so In a song he sang, and then I knew A man is in love with you A man is in love, how did I hear? I heard him talk too much whenever you're near He whispered your name when his eyes were closed A man is in love and he knows A man is in love, how did I guess? I figuered it out while he was watching you dress He'd give you his all, if you'd but agree A man is in love and he's me

Beeswing 04:24
I was nineteen when I came to town They called in the Summer of Love They were burningbabies, burning flags The Hawks against the Doves I took a job in the STeamie Down on Cauldrum Street I fell in love with a laundry girl Was working next to me She was a rare thing Fine as a beeswing So fine a breath of wind might blow her away She was a lost child She was running wild, she said As long as there's no price on love, I'll stay And you wouldn't want me any other way Brown hair zig-zag round her face And a look of half-surprise Like a fox caught in the headlights There was an animal in her eyes She said, young man, O can't you see I'm not the factory kind If you don't take me out of here I'll surely lose my miind She was a rare thing Fine as a beeswing So fine a breath of wind might blow her away She was a lost child She was running wild, she said As long as there's no price on love, I'll stay And you wouldn't want me any other way We busked around the market towns And picked fruit down in Kent And we could tinker lamps and pots And knives wherever we went And I said that we might settle down Get a few acres dug Fire burning in the hearth And babies on the rug She said O man, you foolish man It surely sounds like hell You might be lord of half the world You'll not own me as well She was a rare thing Fine as a beeswing So fine a breath of wind might blow her away She was a lost child She was running wild, she said As long as there's no price on love, I'll stay And you wouldn't want me any other way We was camping down the Gower one time The work was pretty good She thought we shouldn't wait for frost And I thought maybe we should We were drinking more in those days And tempers reached a pitch Like a fool I let her run With the rambling itch Last I hear she's sleeping out Back on Derby beat White Horse in her hip pocket And a wolfhound at her feet And they say she even marriend once A man named Romany Brown But even a Gypsy caravan Was too much settliing down And they say her flower is faded now Hard weather and hard booze But maybe that's just hte price you pay For the chains you refuse She was a rare thing Fine as a beeswing And I missher more than ever words could say If I could just taste All of her wildness now If I could hold her in my arms today Then I wouldn't want her any other way

Galway Girl 03:01
Well, I took a stroll on the old long walk Of a day-I-ay-I-ay I met a little girl and we stopped to talk Of a fine soft day-I-ay-I-ay And I ask you, friend, what's a fella to do ? 'Cause her hair was black and her eyes were blue And I knew right then I'd be takin' a whirl 'Round the Salthill Prom with a Galway girl We were halfway there when the rain came down Of a day-I-ay-I-ay She asked me up to her flat downtown Of a fine soft day-I-ay-I-ay And I ask you, friend, what's a fella to do? 'Cause her hair was black and her eyes were blue I took her hand and I gave her a twirl And I lost my heart to a Galway girl When I woke up I was all alone With a broken heart and a ticket home And I ask you now, tell me what would you do If her hair is black and her eyes were blue I've traveled around I've been all over this world Boys, I ain't never seen nothin' like a Galway girl
