I'm jist a Kelty Miner ©

John Bearcat-Redmond
Fife, Scotland
1970

Am jist a Kelty Miner, ain diggin coals ma gaim
A dig thi stuff thit fulls yer fire ain heats up aw yer hame
Agit up in thi mornin ain a wark frae six tae three
Ain thayne agit up sleepi eend ain jist hae tae hae ma tee

A likit gane thi hoolidaes ain aw thi thungs thit air grand
Likit a trip tae Burtisland ain doon th Burli sands
A likit tackin thi wive ain weans awa thair fer thi dae
Ain thin wi hae a cup or twa ain thyn wirt oon ower wae

Am jist a Kelty Miner, ain diggin coals ma gaim
A dig thi stuff thit fulls yer fire ain heats up aw yer hame
Agit up in thi mornin ain a wark frae six tae three
Ain thayne agit up sleepi eend ain jist hae tae hae ma tee
