OVER THE GROUND
IVOR THE DRIVER
by Dave Goulder

One night at the church I was stealing some coal
Over the ground and under the ground
What did I see? Well, I'll tell you it all
Over and under the ground.

A sleepy old miner was walking alone.
Over the ground and under the ground
And he nipped through the graveyard to find his way home,
Over and under the ground.

He was thinking of only the time he could save
Over the ground and under the ground
When he tumbled into an unoccupied grave
Over and under the ground

He picked himself up and scrambled about
Over… the ground and under the ground
But try as he might he just couldn't get out
Over and under the ground

Not being the kind who would whimper and weep
Over the ground under the ground
He laid down in the corner and went off to sleep.
Over and under the ground.

The miner was sleeping not caring at all
Over the ground and under the ground
When Ivar the driver nipped over the wall
Over and under the ground

The night it was dark and Ivar was full
Over the ground and under the ground
And he tripped and he fell in that very same hole
Over and under the ground.

He ranted and raved and he cursed and he swore
Over the ground and under the ground
And he wakened the miner asleep on the floor
Over and under the ground.

He picked himself up and he scrambled about
Over the ground and under the ground
When a voice from the dark said YOU'LL NEVER GET OUT
Over and under the ground.

The miner remembers his night with the dead
Over the ground and under the ground
But Ivar the driver is strapped in his bed
Over and under the ground.

THis is one of our favorite songs. Norris Dale often leads it for Roll & Go when we're at a spooky special event. I'd forgotten that it was Dave Goulder who composed it.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

I've looked at Dave Goulder's web site and I don't see any mention there of a song called OVER THE GROUND.

However, there is one called IVOR THE DRIVER on the album "Requiem for Steam." Dave doesn't provide any lyrics or a sound sample for this song, but I think IVOR THE DRIVER must be the correct title for the song Kendall has posted.

I've got a vague memory of Dave referring to it as "Ivor the Driver" in conversation.

I have a good memory of the time Gordon and I sang it in concert when Dave was in the front row. of course we made a mistake.
Dave never said a word.

Kendall you missed the best verse!

That Grave it was long and exceedingly deep
Over....
Ivor the driver was out in one leap
over.....
