    In the early 1800's, large groups of mainly unskilled labourers built England's Railways. The cost in human terms alone was very high...


    Leaving my family behind me
    not knowing what lay ahead
    waving goodbye, as I left them in tears
    remembering all we'd said

    I looked to the sky, I offered my prayers
    I asked Him for guidance and strength
    but the simple beliefs of a simple man
    lay in His hands, and on my head

    I gave everything that they wanted
    but still they wanted more
    we sweat and we toiled
    good men lost their lives
    I don't think they knew what for

    I sold them my heart
    I sold them my soul
    I gave everything I had
    ah but they couldn't break my spirit
    my dignity fought back,
    fightback
    can you hear me
    can you see
    Don't you hear me
    don't you see

    We worked in gangs for all we were worth
    the young boys pulling the wagons
    we were digging the tunnel, shifting the earth
    it was then that it happened.

    No-one knew how the cracks appeared
    but as it fell they all disappeared
    stone fell like rain

    Can you hear me,
    Can you see
    Don't you hear me
    Can you breathe

    The smoke cleared, the dust it settled
    No one knew how many had died
    all around there were broken men
    they'd said it was safe, they'd lied
    you could hear the cries, you could smell the fear
    but good fortune that day was mine
    and it occurred to me the heart of a good man
    it seems is hard to find.

    Can you hear me,
    can you see
    Don't you hear me
    don't you see

    We worked, how we worked like
    the devil for our pay
    through the wind, through the snow,
    and through the rain

    Blasting and cutting through Gods country like a knife
    sweat stinging my eyes, there has to be a better life

    Ah but I can hear my childrens' cry
    I can see the tears in their eyes
    memories of those I've left behind
    still ringing in my ears
    Will I ever go back again
    Will I ever see her face again
    I'll never forget that night
    As they waved goodbye to their fathers

    We came from the South,
    and we came from the North
    with picks and with spades
    and a new kind of order
    showing no fear of what lies up ahead
    They'll never see the likes of us again

    Driving the last spike,
    lifting and laying the track
    with blistering hands,
    the sun burning your back

    Oh but I can hear my childrens' cry
    I can see the tears in their eyes
    memories of those I've left behind
    still ringing in my ears
    Well I'll always remember that night,
    As they waved goodbye to their fathers

    We followed the rail, we slept under the stars
    digging in darkness, and living with danger
    showing no fear of what lies up ahead
    they'll never see the likes of us again

    can you hear me
    can you see
    Don't you hear me
