These are the lyrics and chords, straight from Jenny, via Facebook..

YOU CAN'T DRINK MONEY
By Jenny Morgan 2011

(G) Here come the boys wavin' their cash
Looking up and down for natural gas
Looking for gas so they can get rich
They'll do anything to dig that ditch
(C) They'll say it's safe, they'll say it's clean
To frack that well they'll say anything
(G) Don't be a fool, don't sign on the line
Or you'll be sorry in due time

Chorus--Cuz you can't drink (C) money
No you can't drink (G) money
Say (D) what you gonna do when your water turns blue
And everybody's sick and you are too
(D7) Oh you can't drink (C) money, no, no

(G) So sorry to hear you sold your land
To the gas and the oil man
Guess you bought his lies or maybe it's true
That you'd do anything to get rich too
You'd (C) sell your soul, your healthy life, all the trees and the wildlife
(G) Just be warned when your well is cursed
Those dollar bills won't quench your thirst

(Chorus)…..and then a (Short instrumental) (C7, G, C7, D7)….during instrumental you can say "drink it up" and "ask the people of Dimock PA or Dish, Tx…they'll tell you all about fracking"…OR you can ad lib, add local info., etc.(?)

(G) Oh… don't frack my world, don't frack my parks
Mr. gas man you're breakin' my heart
With your slick little ads that make it seem
Like you're the second coming with a drilling machine
The (C) devil himself couldn't make that sell
If he were drilling your toxic wells
But the (G) devil don't have what the oil man got
That's deep pockets and a prime time spot

Oh you can't drink (C) money, no you can't drink (G) money
Say (D) what you gonna do when your water turns blue
And everybody's sick 'cluding me and you
Even the gas man's sick as he's driving away
Lookin' for another sucker (D7) he can pay
Oh you can't drink (C) money, no, (G) no
No you can't drink (C) money, no, (G) no
No you can't drink (C7) money (D7) (G)

TS....thanks for your link there. Good song.

Most certainly The Devil is in The Fracking for sure.

It's hard to believe that we, as a Species, can allow something so terrible to happen, but sadly, way too many terrible things happening to our planet at present. The good thing is that more and more people have their eyes finally Wide Open at long last..

Meanwhile, across the pond, the Boycott Coca Cola Experience adopts a different post-Ivor Cutler, post-Mark E Smith approach to the protest song:

Hey, topical tom. You know anything about fracking in a town that will remain unnamed just 15 km from here? I heard they have been allowing the residue water to be processed at their water plant and maybe they ain't catching all the chemical garbage, and guess where it ends up? That's right, floating through the big O. Anyway, lemme know ok?

And the Lord said, "Let there be light."
And there was.

Give me oil for my lamp,
Keep it burning, burning, burning.
Give me oil for my lamp, I pray.
Give me oil for my lamp,
Keep it burning, burning....
Keep it burning till the break O'Day.

Reflect upon a world without whales ... and consider how petroleum and capitalism saved their entire population from extinction. (The smaller fish of the sea sing a different shanty similar to yours).

Subject: Lyr Add: WHEN COAL SEAM GAS WAS NEW (Spencer)
From: Sandra in Sydney
Date: 22 Oct 14 - 07:48 PM

thanks, Max - this gives me a chance to introduce songwriter Paul Spencer to 'Catters

When coal seam gas was new by Paul Spencer

as sung by Paul

traditional English tune "When Jones's Ale Was New"
new words by Paul Spencer and John Spencer 2012

1. On grazing land that was priceless, a company sought a gas licence,
A company sought a gas licence, they'd have a jolly good spree,
They quickly came up with a marvellous plan,
To frack for gas all over the land,
And sell it to China and Japan,
When coal seam gas was new, my boys,
When coal seam gas was new.

CHORUS:
And they called for more wells and more land and more leases,
And oh the expansion it just never ceases,
And nobody mentioned all these increases,
When coal seam gas was new, my boys,
When coal seam gas was new.

2. Well at first it's just exploration, a simple investigation,
A simple investigation, if only it were true,
For once the company passes the gate,
You're likely to find you've left it too late,
With all their sweet-talking you've taken the bait,
When coal seam gas was new, my boys,
When coal seam gas was new.

CH

3. Well the next to come in is the drilling, no chance of anything spilling,
No chance of anything spilling, if only it were true,
There's sodium hydroxide, ammonium persulfate,
Or muriatic acid or sodium borate,
Disodium octaborate tetrahydrate,
So drink your chemical brew, my boys,
So drink your chemical brew.

CH

4. When drilling down past the water, they seal it just like they oughter,
They seal it just like they oughter, if inly it were true,
The water flows out from the basin cracking,
And mixes with chemicals used in the fracking,
And all of it's done with government backing,
The profits will go to a few, my boys,
The profits will go to a few.

CH

5. And when the mining is over, the land will go back to clover,
The land will go back to clover, if only it were true,
We can't use the water, the poison's still there,
The methane's still leaking into the air,
And the company's gone with never a care,
When coal seam gas is through, my boys,
When coal seam gas is through.

CH

Sorry (where is an edit button when I don't have wits to be a bit slower to hit submit.)

Here is the page with numerous fracking songs. Not facebook. And not selective. Some are videos of rallies and songs are not necessarily very original.
