THE COAL BOAT SONG Stompin' Tom Connors I left Cape Briton on the coal boat For St. John's Newfoundland I met a little girl named Sally And I took her by her little white hand She shook her little head and said "No way, Fred, I won't go along with your plan You been workin' on the coal boat, boy And you're nothin' but a dirty old man You been workin' on the coal boat, boy And you're nothin' but a dirty old man" SPOKEN: Well I had to think of something real fast ya know Yeah, well I'm gonna quit the dirty coal boats, I wanna live in Newfoundland I'll buy a suit and get married, Put a ring upon your little white hand She nodded her head and said "Ok, Fred" Sal went along with the plan But I'm still workin' on the coal boat, boy And I'm nothin' but a dirty old man But I'm still workin' on the coal boat, boy And I'm nothin' but a dirty old man It was sometime later on the coal boat I got a little letter from home Sally said Freddy was a good boy, But the little beggar wanted to roam She said "It's too bad he's got you for a dad And I hope that you feel real grand. He's gone working on the coal boats boy To be just like his dirty old man He's gone working on the Coal Boats boy To be just like his dirty old man" I left Cape Briton on the coal boat For St. John's Newfoundland I met a little girl named Sally And I took her by her little white hand She shook her little head and said "No way, Fred, I won't go along with your plan You ain't gonna quit the coal boat, boy 'Cause I loves ya, ya dirty old man You ain't gonna quit the coal boat boy 'Cause I loves ya, ya dirty old man" So come all young fellars on the coal boat, I hope you're gonna understand If you got a pretty little girlfriend And ya takes her by the little white hand If she turns her back and says "No way, Jack, I won't go along with yer plan" Just keep workin' on the coal boats, boy If ya wants to be a dirty old man Just keep workin' on the coal boat, boy And you'll be nothin' but a dirty old man
