Lyrics to Cousin Jack This land is bar-ren and bro-ken,
Scarred like the face of the moon
Our tongue is no lon-ger spo-ken
And the Towns all a-round face ruin
Will there be work in New Bruns-wick?
Will I find gold in the Cape?
If I tunnel way down to Australia
Oh 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
So look for me under the lode and inside the vain,
Where the copper the clay the arsnic and tin
Run in your blood and under your skin
I'll leave the county behind I'm not coming back
Oh follow me down cousin Jack.

The soil was to 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 and inside the vain,
Where the copper the clay the arsnic and tin
Run in your blood and under your skin
I'll leave the county behind I'm not coming back
Oh follow me down cousin Jack.

I dream of a bridge on the Tamar
It opens us up to the East
And the English they live in our houses
The Spanish fish in these 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 and inside the vain,
Where the copper the clay the arsnic and tin
Run in your blood and under your skin
I'll leave the county behind I'm not coming back
Oh follow me down cousin Jack.
