Songs Lyrics
A-F G-O P-Z Christmas
The Final Trawl
(Archie Fisher)

Well it's three long years since we made her pay
And sing haul away me laddie O
And the owners say that she's had her day
And sing haul away me laddie O

So stow your gear, boys, and batten down
And I'll take the wheel an' I'll turn her 'round

We'll join the Venture and the Morning Star
Riding high and empty headed for the bar

You know I'd rather beach her on the Skerry´s rock
Than to see her torched in the breaker's dock

When I die you can stow me down
In the rotten hold where the breakers sound

And I'll make the haven of Fiddler's Green
Where the grub is good, and the bunks are clean

For I've fished a lifetime, both boy and man
But the final trawl scarcely makes a cran

So heave away for the final trawl
And sing haul away me laddie O
It's an easy pull for the catch is small
And sing haul away me laddie O
And sing haul away me laddie O
And sing haul away my laddie O
