The Canalside Blues
(to the tune of “Walkin’ down the line” by Bob Dylan, lyrics by Steven Hunt)

I’ve been working on the farm
I’ve been working on the farm
I’ve been working on the farm, it’s got a lotta charm, and I hope I didn’t do no harm

I might a trodden on a beet
Might a trodden on a beet
Might a trodden on a beet, with my size ten feet, that’s not a beet we’re gonna eat

I’ve been working on the farm…

I ate a potato
I ate a potato
I ate a potato, that I helped to grow, and it tasted better cause I know that I’ve been working on the farm…

I met farmer Tom
I met farmer Tom
I met farmer Tom, and we got right along, and I hope he’s listening to this song

Coz I’ve been working on the farm… really…
I’ve been working on the farm, I have so…
I ain’t no cheat, it’s written on the sheet, don’t believe me you can talk to Pete…

It was last year sometime…

I’ve gotten five e-mails
I’ve gotten ten e-mails
I didn’t read them all, coz my brain’s too small, just call if I can help at all

Coz I love working on the farm…

I got a funny coloured squash
I got a funny coloured squash
I need a recipe, coz believe you me, I got blue squash for my tea

I’ve been working on the farm…

I planted a courgette
I planted a courgette
I planted a courgette, and I’m willing to bet, that’s a thing I will regret when I get a hundred courgettes

I’ve been working on the farm…

I got some muddy shoes
I got some muddy shoes
I got some muddy shoes, but I ain’t gonna lose, just love them Canalside blues

I’ve been working on the farm…
