Every morning about seven o'clock

There's twenty tarriers a workin at the rock

The boss comes along and he says, "Keep still

And come down heavy on the cast iron drill."


And drill, ye tarriers, drill

Drill, ye tarriers, drill

For it's work all day for the sugar in you tay

Down beyond the railway

And drill, ye tarriers, drill

And blast, and fire.

The boss was a fine man down to the ground

And he married a lady six feet 'round

She baked good bread and she baked it well

But she baked it harder than the hobs of Hell.

The foreman's name was John McCann

By God, he was a blamed mean man

Last week a premature blast went off

And a mile in the air went big Jim Goff.

And when next payday came around

Jim Goff a dollar short was found

When he asked, "What for?" came this reply

"You were docked for the time you were up in the sky."

Tarriers live on work and sweat

There ain't no tarrier got rich yet

Sleep and work, then work some more

And we'll drill right through to the devil's door."
