Paddy Goes To Holyhead - Crooked Jack Lyrics | FAST DOWNLOAD

Crooked Jack

Come Irishmen
Both young and stern
With adventure in your soul
There are better ways
To spend your days
Than in working down a hole

The ganger′s blue-eyed
Pet was I
Big Jack could do no wrong
And the reason simply
Was because
I could work hard hours and long

[Chorus:]
I was tall and true
All of 6 foot 2
But they broke me across the back
By a name I′m known
And it′s not my own
For they call me Crooked Jack

I′ve seen men old
Before their time
Their faces drawn and gray
I never thought
So soon would mine
Be lined the self same way

I′ve cursed the day
That I went away
To work on the hydro dams
For sweat and tears
Or hopes and fears
Bound up in shuttering jams

[Chorus]
They say that honest
Toil is good
For the spirit and the soul
But believe me boys -
It′s for sweat and blood
That they want you down a hole

[Chorus]
