Wild Irish - Icewagon Flu lyrics


Impossible feat, my foot
To build an artificial brook
With shovel, pick and pale
We dig the Erie Canal

And from Lockport’s deep cut
To the stony aqueduct
We provide the tide
Down through the mountainside

‘Cause we’re the wild Irish upon the canal
We'll breakdown that earthen wall
We’re the wild Irish upon the canal
To be free men before we fall
Wild Irish all heed the call
To build our new home

Upon our backs the market is built
Through sweat, and blood, and mud and silt
‘Cause we’re your laboring poor
That washed upon your eastern shore

And from Lockport’s deep cut
To the stony aqueduct
We provide the tide
Down through the mountainside

‘Cause we’re the wild Irish upon the canal
We'll breakdown that earthen wall
We’re the wild Irish upon the canal
To be free men before we fall
Wild Irish all heed the call
To build our new home

BRIDGE
We washed on your shore
Your laboring poor
With sweet air to breath
But nothing to eat

We washed on your shore
Your laboring poor
With sweet air to breath
But nothing to eat

Straight off the boat, into the ditch
With whiskey as our nightly itch
Despite the yankee prejudice
We tunnel through the wilderness

And from Lockport’s deep cut
To the stony aqueduct
We provide the tide
Down through the mountainside

‘Cause we’re the wild Irish upon the canal
We'll breakdown that earthen wall
We’re the wild Irish upon the canal
To be free men before we fall
Wild Irish all heed the call
To build our new home
