The Pits

Click Here for guitar tabs.

It’s the 24th of May and we likes to get away,
Up in the woods or going out the bay;
There’s all kinds of places but the place we likes to get
Is up on the highway in the gravel pits.

We loves to go out in the good old gravel pits,
Loves to go out there when life gets smelly
We can spray paint our names on the face of the cliff,
Go up to the Irving for a coke and chips.

We hitches up the camper and out of town we go
Out on the highway with everything in tow;
The dog is in the back seat, grandfathers drunk
Youngsters in the trailer and the wife is in the trunk.

It’s the 24th of May and we likes to get away,
Up in the woods or going out the bay;
There’s all kinds of places but the place we likes to get
Is up on the highway in the gravel pits.

John is coming over and Sue and Henry too,
We’ll polish off a bottle and a pot of moose stew;
We’ll tell a few stories and an awful lot of lies
Green boughs on the fire to keep away the flies./p

The youngsters get excited and they start to bounce and jump,
When we piles in the car and goes up to the dump;
It’s cheaper than a movie so we all sits and stares
Up by the garbage pile looking at the bears./p

It’s the 24th of May and we likes to get away,
Up in the woods or going out the bay;
There’s all kinds of places but the place we likes to get
Is up on the highway in the gravel pits.

We flies a Newfie flag on an old spruce pole
Drowns a few more worms in a tractor mud hole;
Listens to the radio we play it good and loud
A scoff on the Coleman stove is bound to draw a crowd.

And when the weekends over and we’re headed back to town,
A half inch of sloppy snow lying on the ground:
A hundred dollars poorer but who wants to be rich?
We just had a lovely time out in the pits.

It’s the 24th of May and we likes to get away,
Up in the woods or going out the bay;
There’s all kinds of places but the place we likes to get
Is up on the highway in the gravel pits.
