Whaur Will We Gang

  • (Andy Mitchell)

    I mind the days when they worked at the driftnet
    And the Clydesmen a' went wi' the ringnet sae fine
    But a' thae tried methods have noo been o'ertaken
    For the sake o' fortune and keeping wi' time

    And what will we dae when the Minch is a' finished
    And what will we dae when the herrin's a' done
    And whaur will we gang wi' oor pursers and trawlers
    And how will we ever pay off the bank loan

    There's still some good shotties o' mackerel aff Cornwall
    So we'll a' head doon sooth and scrape up what's left there
    We'll fill up the fishhold and we'll nae fear the future
    But soon there'll be mackerel aff Cornwall nae mair

    Blue whiting's in season oot there aff St. Kilda
    So we'll rig-up deep trawl and we'll a' head oot west
    Wi' tow after tow that's a' landed for fishmeal
    But the whiting will go the same as the rest

    And what will we dae when the mackerel is finished
    And what will we dae when the whiting's a' done
    And whaur will we gang wi' oor pursers and trawlers
    And how will we ever pay off the bank loan

    (as sung by Cilla Fisher)
