Hard Working Boater by William Bates (2007) From Kidsgrove to Middlewich is a mighty long way Listening all the time to what my woman's got to say I've got those narrowboat Heartbreak Hill blues I've been here before and I really don't want to go The cruising is bad and the journeys so slow I've got those narrowboat Heartbreak Hill blues The paddle gear is stuck and my windlass is bent I can't push the beam unless some more help is sent I've got those narrowboat Heartbreak Hill blues There are too many locks and not enough pounds It's just follow the locks all the way to Middlewich town I've got those narrowboat Heartbreak Hill blues I use the windlass but it never turns how I like The gears are all rusty and not greased right I've got those narrowboat Heartbreak Hill blues It's to late now to turn this boat around Since we're half way up or is it half way down I've got those narrowboat Heartbreak Hill blues It's early in the morning and the fog is so bad If my woman lets me sleep then I won't be so sad I've got those narrowboat Heartbreak Hill blues To get around I've tried a bike It's something I do but don't really like I've got those narrowboat Heartbreak Hill blues This song was kindly provider by its author, Bill Bates, who has travelled up and down the Cheshire flight many times. He informs me that this was originally written for a soprano ukelele.
