The Martintown Song

This song is by Hadrian's Wall.

As I woke up this morning, at 7:45
So happy I was this morning just to find meself alive
I harnessed up me horses, my business to resume
And back to haulin' cord was the thing we used to do

'Cause we were haulin one cord; we should have been haulin' four
We stopped so long in Martintown, we couldn't haul no more
The tavern doors were open, the whiskey it was free
And when me glass was empty, another was there for me

The four prettiest maidens that ever sailed from France
The four prettiest maidens just got up on the floor and danced
Gerry O'Neil was fiddler 'cause his arm was strong
He played the reels of Ireland for four hours long

'Cause we were haulin one cord; we should have been haulin' four
We stopped so long in Martintown, we couldn't haul no more
The tavern doors were open, the whiskey it was free
And when me glass was empty, another was there for me

Well, I harnessed up ol' Doplin, we rode away so still
We scarcely took a breath until we reached ol' Apple Hill
The people there were lookin' at us; exactly what did they say?
"The must have used a spyglass, or they'd never have found their way"

'Cause we were haulin one cord; we should have been haulin' four
We stopped so long in Martintown, we couldn't haul no more
The tavern doors were open, the whiskey it was free
And when me glass was empty, another was there for me

So come on all you women who tattletale about
You'd better watch your chat because we're better off without
We'll go back to haulin' cord, we'll whistle and we'll sing
And surely we'll never go on such a helluva spree again

'Cause we were haulin one cord; we should have been haulin' four
We stopped so long in Martintown, we couldn't haul no more
The tavern doors were open, the whiskey it was free
And when me glass was empty, another was there for me

'Cause we were haulin one cord; we should have been haulin' four
We stopped so long in Martintown, we couldn't haul no more
The tavern doors were open, the whiskey it was free
And when me glass was empty, another was there for me
