Navigator

C F
The canals and the bridges the embankments and cuts

C G
They blasted and dug with their sweat and their guts

C F
They never drank water but whiskey by pints

C G C
And the shanty towns rang with their songs and their fights

Ch

C F C
Navigator Navigator rise up and be strong

G
For the morning is here and there's work to be done

C F C
Take your pick and your shovel and the bold dynamite

F G C
For to shift a few tons of this earthly delight

F G C
Yes to shift a few tons of this earthly delight

They died in their hundreds no sign to mark where
Save the brass in the pockets of the entrepreneur
By landslip and rockblast they got buried so deep
That in death if not life they'll have peace where they sleep

Ch

Their mark on this landside is still seen and still laid
The way for a commerce where vast fortunes were made
The supply of an empire where the sun never set
Which is now deep in darkness but the railway's there yet
