lyrics

Hares run free on the Wicklow mountains,
Wild geese fly and the foxes play,
Sporting Wicklow boys are working,
Driving a tunnel through the London clay.

Up with the shields and jack it! Ram it!
Drive a tunnel through the London clay.

Lough Derg trout grow fat and lazy,
Salmon sport in Cushla bay;
And fishermen from Connemara
Drive a tunnel through the London clay.

Chorus

The curragh rots on the Achill Island,
Tourists walk on the Newport quay;
The Mayo boys have all gone roving,
Digging a tunnel through the London clay.

Chorus

The Carlow girls are fine and handsome,
All decked out so neat and gay;
The Carlow boys don't come to court 'em
They're driving a tunnel through the London clay.

Chorus

Down in the dark are the tunnel tigers
Far from the sun and the light of day;
Down in the land that the sea once buried,
Driving a tunnel through the London clay.

Chorus x2

Its not trad but its not folk either, a mix of rip-roaring delicately played instrumental compositions taking inspiration from all over Europe, together with drones, electronic sound scapes and spectacular vocals. Mossy Nolan's music has its roots in the folk and traditional realms for sure, but has the scope to reach a wider audience. ... more
