The Ballad of Andy Jacobs - Lyrics

Andy Jacobs drifted in
And setteld down into his favorite chair
He let his mind wonder for a while
She watched his eyes unfoucus
Seeing things she didn't know were there
But he caught her eye and broke into a smile
He said
Cassie love we've decided
Cassie love I'm not sure I chose the right side
But tommorow I'll be standing on the line
Cassie took his hand in hers and said
I've never seen your face look so pale
It reminds me of the first time that we met
You were standing at the bar
And you looked nervous
And I thought you'd be sick
But we laughed together untill last orders ran
You said
Cassie love I've decided
Cassie love your the one I want to be with
And soon you'll be standing by my side
I'll make you my bride
In this fine month of april
For fithteen years I've worked down their
And I'm not afraid to leave without a fight
But I'm sure this will be over in a week
From the cenitarth tomorrow we will march
And let them see just how we're feeling
We'll let them know we're not afraid to strike
But Cassie love it might be hard
Cassie love we've kids to feed
And no money saved
But at least I'm standing for what I believe in
Cassie took hishand hers
And said
I'll stand beside you all the way
Just promise me you wont cause any troble
And as the month got under way
Andy started coming home much less
The kids almost forget what he looked like
Cassie love I thought you understood
Cassie love we're fighting for our way of life
And I have to help the lads out on the line
They'll not make me a fool in this fine month of april
Just to raise a little cash Andy went back to the only thing he new
Illeagal but he saw no other way
Digging coal from the banks of the train tracks
And selling it on
Digging in the dark so no one saw
Cassie love I've let you down
Cassie love this hasn't gone the way I planned
I never thought I'd be living off the land
Then one evening he went down to find
Some kids had set the signal box alight
He watched as it was raised to the ground
But the scene below caught fire
Andies coal burned just out of sight
He hid and watched the flames grow higher
Cassie love the flames kept rising
Cassie love it was like watching all my hopes and fears
I'm afraid I wont rebuild them for many years
Maybe I'm a fool in this fine month of april
Maybe I'm a fool to put you all through this
Prehaps I should have listened to my concious
Maybe I'm a fool
Maybe I'm a fool
