WORKING DIRTY

WORKING DIRTY
J.Lowe – Lowe Life Music – 2003

Me and Keelaghan at midnight, furrowed of brow,
Too much the dreamers to be sleepers,
These are long lonely furrows we’ve chosen to plough,
No room for losers and weepers,
We should both be sleeping soundly,
By living clean, and working dirty,
Working dirty.

And in my mind’s tired eye, and old man calls from afar,
Harder the work, deeper the slumber,
And you won’t stretch much muscle on that guilty guitar,
Long nights awake, and no wonder!
You should both be sleeping soundly,
By living clean, and working dirty,
Working dirty.

And he calls on and on, ever breathless and slow,
The curse of dust be upon us
He says, hard graft, pit shaft that’s all that I know,
My sleep is long now but honest.
You should both be sleeping soundly,
By living clean, and working dirty,
Working dirty.

Me and Keelaghan moving with morning in mind,
So hard a life for a rover,
We took a thousand mile stare and then what did we find?
One moonlight shines the world over,
We should both be sleeping soundly,
By living clean, and working dirty,
Working dirty.
