Richard Thompsons "Wall of Death" and "Vincent Black Lightning" include motor-cycles but I dunno if you would count them as motorcycling songs.

Hunting is easier - John Peel, College Valley Hounds, Three Jolly Sportsmen - dozens of 'em!

Fishing - depends if you mean trawlers or fishing rods. Trawing has loads - Shoals of Herring, Three score and ten etc etc. Fishing rod songs are a bit more rare but one cropped up here a short while ago - About a worm called Big Jim oddly enough!

Enjoy the search - It is sometimes better than the end result;-)

Jethro Tull's "Too Old To Rock 'n Roll (Too Old To Die)" is the archetypal folk rock motorcycling tragedy song.

A Google search on "Too Old To Rock" will bring up the lyrics.

Take care,

Arlo Guthries Motorcycle Song is a beauty as is Taj Mahal's Fishin' Blues. I believe they're both in the DT.

Subject: Lyr Add: I WISH I WAS HUNTING^^
From: pattyClink
Date: 22 Nov 00 - 10:16 AM

This is a cheerful, fast little song I love, makes me wish I was a fisherman or hunter so I would have an excuse to sing it

It is from the www.makem.com site, click Discography, then Lyrics Index.

I WISH I WAS HUNTING

On a fine, sunny morning, with the dew upon the grass
And the mist lying soft upon the hill
I would ramble through the bog, just myself and the dog
And go fishing in the river by the mill

Chorus:
I wish I was hunting where the wild ducks run
And the rabbits and the pheasants and the hares
Or searching for a fox in the ferns and the rocks
And I wouldn't give you tuppence for my cares

There are trout in the river, there are salmon there as well
And sometimes the long and slippy eels
And the meadows would be ringing with the sweet larks singing
And the people out there working in the fields

Chorus

In the merry month of June, when the whins are in bloom
And the dusk begins to fall at half past ten
If you walked a mile or so and you knew just where to go
You could find them making poteen in the glen

Chorus

In the month of October, when the weather's turning cold
And the yellow autumn stubble on the ground
There are bright window lights burning holes in the night
And the fiddle music ringing all around

Chorus

Evans and Doherty, out of Nova Scotia, do a song called "The Second Week of Deer Camp". I don't know who wrote it, but it is funny.here's a taste:

It's the second week of deer camp
And all the boys are here
We drink,play cards and shoot the bull
But never shoot no deer
The only time we leave the camp
Is when we go for beer
It's the second week of deer camp
It's the greatest time of year

go to http://www.evansanddoherty.com/

Cheers, Bardford

There was a thread awhile back called Help: KNOW ANY FISHING SONGS???. It contains titles of lots of songs, and words to a few.

The Preacher and The Bear is a pretty good Hunting song. Jerry Reed did a version of it.
