Dig Boys Dig Written by Brian Langtry and Ray Bradshaw Copyright Bridge Music. All rights protected Dig boys dig, dig that stony ground Dig boys dig, dig down down down Dig boys dig gotta shift another ton When the boss man blows his whistle shrill Another shift is done With shovel pick and barra boys I'll tell for what its worth With blistered hands and tired back We shift these tons of earth We live in tents and sheds and huts in shanty towns beside the cut And we find it hard to understand there was no promised land Dig boys dig, etc. In rain and sun and wind and sleet to earn another crust Another blast another mile another hillside blown to dust We pack the puddle pack it hard and we trample it well down Another mile to reach the bridge and another turn around Dig boys dig, etc. When the diggings done mi lads we'll move on down the road Another cut another mile another place to dig deep down We flood the locks and blast the tunnels and we brag about the fights We wake up with an aching head from another drunken night Dig boys dig Lyrics and recording kindly provided by Brian Langtry who has been touring a multi media show called “Coal and Canals” in 2018 and 2019. This is one of the songs written for this show
