Songs of the Inland Waterways - Title


This site is aiming to gather together and provide links to songs, old and new, which relate to British and Irish waterways. It has been produced as a hobby project and has no commercial purpose.

Lyrics for all songs are given with tunes and/or chords where possible. Contributions of missing tunes/chords are always welcome.

Small snippets of commercial recordings, generally one verse (and chorus), are included to give a better idea of the songs' rhythms and melodies. Full recordings of songs which have been provided by the songwriter can also be found on the site as well as some videos. The audio recordings will open for use by your usual media player in a new window. It should therefore be possible to listen to the song whilst viewing the words or music.

When recordings are currently commercially available, details of where they can be purchased are included. Additional explanatory or historical information about the songs is included when it is known, along with links to appropriate web-sites.

Contributions from song-writers who might wish to make their songs available to others would be most welcome. Similarly, if any artist objects to the inclusion of lyrics or recordings, please let me know. I have taken the liberty of including some of my own songs which might otherwise never be heard.

Please e-mail ian@waterwaysongs.co.uk with any comments or contributions. Many thanks to all those who have already contacted me with songs and information.
