Thread Name: DTStudy: Hot Ash-Pelt (Hot Asphalt)
Subject: RE: DTStudy: Hot Ash-Pelt (Hot Asphalt)
Yet another version is pretty much as snuffy's above, but the last verse is

Ah me working days are over boys, I've lost me bloody healt(h)
For with niether pick nor shovel, sure a cruel fate I was dealt,
But I never new a better way to make me old heart melt,
Than to be standing round the boiler making the hot asphalt.
But with rubbing and with scrubing sure I caught me death of cold,
and for scientific purposes my body it was sold,
In the Kelvingrove museum me boys I'm hangin in me pelt
as a monument to the Irish mking the hot asphalt.
