Ivor the Driver

?1967 Dave Goulder

        My old touring mate Dave made this song from local ingredients when he was working the steam trains in the UK. (GB)

One night at the church, I was stealing the coal
Over the ground and under the ground
And what did I see? well, I'll tell you it whole
Over and under the ground.

A sleepy old miner was walking alone
Over the ground, and under the ground
And he nipped through the graveyard to find his way home
Over and under the ground.

He was thinking of only the time he could save
Over the ground and under the ground
When he tumbled into an unoccupied grave
Over and under the ground

He picked himself up and he scrambled about
Over the ground and under the ground
But try as he might he just couldn't get out
Over and under the ground.

Not being the kind who would whimper and weep
Over the ground and under the ground
He laid down in a corner and went off to sleep
Over and under the ground.

The miner was sleeping not caring at all
Over the ground and under the ground
When Ivor the driver nipped over the wall
Over and under the ground.

The night it was dark and Ivor was full
Over the ground and under the ground
When he tripped and he fell in that very same hole
Over and under the ground

He ranted and raved and he cursed and he swore
Over the ground and under the ground
And he wakened the miner asleep on the floor
Over and under the ground.

Now, Ivor was sure there was no one about
Over the ground and under the ground
When a voice from the dark says "You'll never get out"
Over and under the ground.

The grave it was dark and exceedingly deep
Over the ground and under the ground
But Ivor the driver was out in one leap
Over and under the ground.

The sleepy old miner he scratched and he spat
Over the ground and under the ground
and he says to himself, "Now, how'ed he do that"?
Over and under the ground.

Well the miner remembers his night with the dead
Over the ground and under the ground
But, Ivor the driver is strapped in his bed
Over and under the ground.

Ivor the Driver is recorded the CD Gordon Bok and Bob Zentz - Together Again for the First Time
