Big Diesel Blues by Dusty Miller I've got a big diesel, down in my engine 'ole I've got a big diesel, way down in my engine 'ole When I fire it up baby, you wanna feel it rock and roll You know that big blade's turning, grinding oh so slow You know that big blade's turning, grinding to and fro You sure can feel it Honey, throbbing way down low My mechanic picked up her sockets, said she would depart She packed away all her whitworths, walked out and depart Now my lift pump's giving trouble and I just can't get a start She found another diesel with a bigger bore and stroke Yes she found a shiny diesel with a bigger bore and stroke Without an engineer my motor's done gone broke Now I've trouble with my injector, the fuel pumps gone run dry I've trouble with my injector, my fuel pumps all run dry I can't get no ignition it makes me wanna cry Gonna get me a new mechanic, get the big end hot again I need a new machanic to get my main bearing hot again Please bring me your toolbox and relieve this aching pain Dave Illingworth, a member of the group DPN+1, tell me that this is a standard 12-bar blues in the established tradition of 'double entendre' blues, and that DPN+1 have performed it with great success at various waterway events.
