drill ye tarriers
Drill Ye Tarriers

Every morning at seven o’clock you see a gang of oftarriers drilling in the rock;The foreman yells,“Now don’t stand stillCome down heavy on the cast iron drill.” Then drill, ye tarriers drill!


Drill, ye tarriers drill. For we work all day without sugar in are taywhen we work for the CP Railway. So it’s drill ye tarriers drill.

The boss sent us to drill a hole --He swore and cursed our Irish soul,He cursed the ship that brought us through,To work on the CP railway crew.


The Foreman’s name was Pat McGann,B’gosh he was an awful man;One day a premature blast went off,And a mile in the sky went big Jim Gough.


When payday next did come around,Big Jim a dollar short was found“What for?” says he. Came this reply:"You're docked for the time you were up in the sky"

Original Lyrics by Thomas Casey & Connelly, a vaudeville team, in 1888 (see below*). Adapted lyrics used here are unknown.
