The Track Machine Lyrics
[D]Tommy Irwine was in [G]plant hire for [A]all of his [D]life
And he lived so contented with his own darling [A]wife.
was [D]always so faithful and never un[A]true.
Untill [D]he changed his ma[G]chine for a Mitsu[A]bishi brand [D]new.
When he bought this new model it was love at first sight.
And he wouldn't come off morning noon or night.
those things can happen, sure it's really obscene.
How a man can fall in love with an old track machine.
Now Barbara she noticed he wasn't eating a bite,
And not coming from work until all hours of noght.
he's got some pussy and I'm envey with Green.
Never thinking this new love was his new track machine.
Tommy done some work with a farmer in Tuam.
And at 4 in the morning he woke in his room.
He ran down the field
with a big butchers knife.
Saying get of off that bitch and get home to your wife.
One time she got sick and she broke the swing gear.
And he got so frustrated he gave a week on the beer.
he brought in some fitters and a big welding team.
And saved no expence on the old track machine.
When Barbara found out well she just dont care.
She's happy to live in this three way love affare.
I know right well on me he's quiet keen.
And he loves me as much as the old track machine.
