GUEST,Swaleman Lyr Req: Settle to Carlisle Railway (Mike Donald) (24) RE: Lyr Req: Settle to Carlisle Railway (Mike Donald) 20 Aug 12


Just found my 'Travelling the Northern Road' EFDS songbook containing 24 of Mike Donald's songs and the third and four verses of The Settle-Carlisle Railway have the following words and place names -
3.They set up shanty towns to protect them from the cold
Inkerman,Sebastopol and Batty Wife Hole
And when they tired of women and drinking of strong beer
They fought bare fist style and they came from far and near

4.And when the winter came it froze them to the floor
It blew them off the viaducts and it killed them on Blea Moor
Some died of smallpox and some of cholera
Chapal and St Leonards have many buried there.

Hope that helps.
