Cousin Jack Lyrics

This land is barren and broken,
Scarred like the face of the moon
Our tongue no longer spoken
The towns all around face ruin
Will there be work in New Brunswick?
Or will I find gold in the Cape?
If I tunnel way down to Australia
How will I ever escape?

Where there's a mine or a hole in the ground
That's what I'm heading for that's where I'm bound
Look for me under the lode or inside the vein,
Where the copper, the clay, where the arsenic and tin
Run in your blood they get under your skin
I'm leaving the county behind and I'm not coming back
So follow me down Cousin Jack.

The soil was too poor to make Eden,
Granite and sea left no choice
Though visions of heaven sustained us,
When John Wesley gave us a voice
Did Joseph once come to St Michaels Mount?
Two thousand years pass in a dream
When you're working your way in the darkness,
Deep in the heart of the seam.

Where there's a mine or a hole in the ground
That's what I'm heading for that's where I'm bound
So look for me under the lode or inside the vein,
Where the copper, the clay, where the arsenic and tin
Run in your blood they get under your skin
I'm leaving the county behind and I'm not coming back
So follow me down Cousin Jack.

I dream of a bridge cross the Tamar
It opens us up to the East
In my dreams I see English living in our houses
I see Spanish fishing in our seas

Where there's a mine or a hole in the ground
That's what I'm heading for that's where I'm bound
So look for me under the lode or inside the vein,
Where the copper, the clay, where arsenic and tin
Run in your blood and under your skin
I'm leaving the county behind and I'm not coming back
So follow me down Cousin Jack.
