The Trawling Trade


The Broadside from Grimsby, about time they got some tunes on here, if anyone has decent copies of there songs on MP3 or album art please drop me a line.



The Trawling Trade
John Conolly

North to the Faeroe Islands, South to the coast of Spain-
West with the whaling fleet, and off to the pole again-
Over the world of water, seventeen seas I've strayed-
Now to the north I'm sailing, back to the trawling trade.
Come, ye bold seafaring men, there's fortunes to be made -
In the trawling trade.

Back to the midnight landings, back to the fish dock smell,
back to the frozen wind, as hard as the teeth of hell,
Back to the strangest game that ever a man has played.
Follow the stormy rollers, back to the trawling trade.
Come, ye bold seafaring men, there's fortunes to be made -
In the trawling trade.

Down with your trawling tackle, down with your nets and gear
Wait for the winches winding, wait for the deckies cheer.
Up with the shining harvest, glittering silver-sprayed -
Down to the decks below to pay, pay for the trawling trade.
Come, ye bold seafaring men, there's fortunes to be made -
In the trawling trade.

Home with a harvest wind, and back to the Humber tide;
Run to the starboard rail and leap to the waterside -
Roll with a roaring bunch of fishermen newly-paid -
Down to the dockside pubs and drink to the trawling trade.

Come, ye bold seafaring men, there's fortunes to be made -
In the trawling trade.
