Highland Blues Band. (1962.)

       (Capo 2nd fret.)

#1.
Cm Early in the morning at seven o'clock
G7 there are twenty Tarriers a drilling at the rock,
Cm And the boss comes around and he says, 'Keep still!
G7 and come down heavy on your cast iron drill.'
CHORUS:
Cm G7 Cm And drill ye Tarriers, drill.
Bb Cm Drill ye Tarriers drill.
Cm EbWell, you work all day for the sugar in your tea,
G7down behind the railway..
Cm G7 Cm And drill ye Tarriers drill,
CmAnd blast and fire.
#2.
G7 CmNow, our new foreman was Jim McGann,
G7by god, he was, a blamed, mean man.
CmLast week a premature blast went off,
G7and a mile in the sky went Big Jim Goff.
CHORUS:
Cm G7 Cm And drill ye Tarriers, drill.
Bb Cm Drill ye Tarriers drill.
Cm EbWell, you work all day for the sugar in your tea,
G7down behind the railway..
Cm G7 Cm And drill ye Tarriers drill,
CmAnd blast and fire.
#3.
CmNow, when next payday comes around,
G7Jim Goff a dollar short was found.
CmWhen asked the reason, came this reply..
G7'You were docked for the time you were up in the sky.'
CHORUS:
Cm G7 Cm And drill ye Tarriers, drill.
Bb Cm Drill ye Tarriers drill.
Cm EbWell, you work all day for the sugar in your tea,
G7down behind the railway..
Cm G7 Cm And drill ye Tarriers drill,
CmAnd blast and fire.
#4.
CmNow, the boss was a fine man down to the ground,
G7and he married a lady, six feet around.
CmShe baked good bread, and she baked it well,
G7but she baked it as hard as the coals in hell.
CHORUS:
Cm G7 Cm And drill ye Tarriers, drill.
Bb Cm Drill ye Tarriers drill.
Cm EbWell, you work all day for the sugar in your tea,
G7down behind the railway..
Cm G7 Cm And drill ye Tarriers drill,
CmAnd blast and fire.
A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
