The Legger's Song by Sue Lee Recorded by Keepers Lock When you're working through a tunnel - in the dark! And there isn't any light - not a spark! But you legs it anyway All without the light of day Charging one-and-six each way - in the dark! I'm a legger through the tunnels - in the dark! It's a proper kinda job - not a lark But it isn't any fun, When you cannot see the Sun And you're legging thirty ton - in the dark! There are goblins, trolls and boggitts - in the dark! I believes all people say - I must remark So I keeps me eyes shut tight So I do not get a fright Seeing ghosts done up in white - in the dark! I've worked all me life in tunnels - in the dark! Couldn't do that sort of job - some do remark But I likes me work I say Legging twenty boats a day And I saves me hard earned pay - in the dark! There are tunnels wide and narra' - in the dark! There are tunnels long and short in which we work Some with paths on which you wends in Some with dirty great big bends in Some what never 'as no ends in - in the dark! Recorded on :
