Following Olga to Lynnby Paul Eady I help crew a tank barge, Lizzie's her name,We're following Enid, pulled on a stout chainNow our holds were packed full down in Cambridge townOn Enid and Lizzie,Gas water tank bargesFollowing Olga to LynnOur skipper is Edwards and a fine man is heThere's no better captain sailed off the salt seaWe're freshwater sailors on England's canalsOn Enid and Lizzie ...With a throb of her engine and smoke from her stackOur tug floats us on to the Baits Bite lockThen it's one by one and we all pass throughOn Enid and Lizzie ...There's smoke in the distance, it's Nellie for sureReturning with Eric whose hold begs for moreSometimes we will stop them for news and a jarOn Enid and Lizzie ...Jack Lee is their skipper he's an awkward old clownHe'll stop at each alehouse when you want to get homeBut when there's no hurry your tongue turns to stoneOn Enid and Lizzie ...Kings Lynn is in sight now and the week is worn throughIt's back to our families for good home made stewAnd we'll eat no more smoke for a day or twoOn Enid and Lizzie ...On Enid and Lizzie ... The song sample was recorded by Mark Dowding on his 2002 album 'Brown Photographs' (CRM 063). The CD is available from Mark Dowding's website. In the album sleeve notes it describes how Mark came across the song's author, Paul Eady, who had written many songs relating to the Fens and the surrounding countryside. It also states that 'This song is about two tank barges called Enid and Lizzie that were pulled by a motor boat called Olga on their journey from Cambridge to Kings Lynn taking Gas Water which was a by-product of the coke industry. Gas Water was full of ammonia and was processed to use as a fertiliser.'
