I feel your pain, Guest. They do great work on the stringed instruments, but the lyrics are very hard to understand. At first I wasn't even sure they were singing English.

Tnanks for the link, because I enjoyed the banjo.

well if this helps I have gleaned this much:
(can anyone fill in the blanks??)
Thomas Nash was killed while sleepin'
They said he sided with the union
Hear the risin', hear it comin'   
From Charleston down to Richmond

Cho:
Irish boys push the steel
When all of those around them
Cry yippee tie yi ay
While comin' down the mountain

They would meet down at that county store
????????????????? were two and forty
Holdin' to a notion
That the rain would stop a fallin'

And they would ???? before the midday
A railroad for a livin'
They left their bodies on the work line
For just the change that they were given
cho

In Connacht where it started
In Virginia where old Tommy met his end
Where all the great departed
Came time and time and time again
cho

Enjoying this! To me, sounds like:

Verse 2: Boots for 2 and 40

Verse 3: Laying frames before the midday

Old Hannah can be contacted through their page on facebook.

IRISH BOYS

Thomas Nash was killed while sleeping,
They said he sided with the union,
Here's a rise and hear it coming,
From Charleston down to Richmond.

Irish boys pushed the steel,
When all of those around them,
Cried yippee-tai-ai-ay,
While coming down the mountain.

They would meet down at that county store,
Boots for two and forty,
Holding to a notion
That the rain woud stop a-falling.

And laying frames before the midday,
A railroad for a living,
They left their bodies on the workline,
For just the change that they were given.

Irish boys pushed the steel,
When all of those around them,
Cried yippee-tai-ai-ay,
While coming down the mountain.

From Connaght where it started,
To Virginia where old Tommy met his end,
Where all the great Departed,
Came time and time and time again.

Irish boys pushed the steel,
When all of those around them,
Cried yippee-tai-ai-ay,
While coming down the mountain.

Yippee-tai-ai-ay.
