You’ve heard of the problem, no hear the song!

Dinahʼs Hollow Blues (with apologies to Johnny Cash)

I hear the trucks a cominʼ theyʼre rolling round the bend

And I ainʼt seen the sunshine since I donʼt know when

Iʼm stuck in Dinahʼs Hollow and time keeps dragginʼ on

Now my trust in Dorset Highways has well ʼn truly gone

 

When I was just a baby my mama said to me

Always be a good boy donʼt drive an HGV

But I took my truck through Melbury just like they told me to

Now every time I see the damage it makes me sad and blue

 

Well if theyʼd free me from this grid-lock

If the highway plans were mine

I bet Iʼd move them all a little further down the line

Far from Dinahʼs Hollow thatʼs where this road should be

Then it wouldnʼt be a disgrace to drive an HGV

 

The folks in Melbury Abbas are tearinʼ out their hair

The Councillors in Dorchester donʼt really seem to care

We only want a bypass that has been properly planned

But those people down at Highways will never understand
