Crazy Eddie Lyr Req: Driver's Song (Ewan MacColl) (7) Lyr Add: DRIVER'S SONG (Ewan MacColl) 22 Oct 01

Come all you gallant drivers,
Wherever you may be,
Whether you drive a Euclid,
or a 54 RB.
Keep your hands upon the levers,
Cut and fill a steady load,
And take it nice & steady boys,
Diggin' up the road.

Verse 2 is as given above (10-Oct-01 - 07:04 AM), but line 5 should read "ROCK & SWAMPLAND" not "ROCK & CONCRETE"

When your diggin' days are over,
And you've loaded your last ton,
When your Cat's been broken up for scrap,
And your RB10 won't run,
When you've had your last stamp on your cards,
And reached your last abode,
For a long time after, there'll be people,
Travellin' on your road.

Huge, I am not 100% certain of the names/ numbers of the various machines: 54 RB could be 54RP, and RB10 could be RP10. Maybe someone who knows these kind of machines could assist.
