lyrics

Farmer came down to the harbour
Looking for a job as a trawlerman
Lost his land, the money's gone
Has to find work wherever he can

Many nets I'll pull with my strong hands
But it hurts with every fish I land
I'll sail out upon the the sea
But a farmer I will always be

Thousand acres entrusted to my hand
My heart and soul went into that land
Raised it like it was my own
Proud of every stalk of wheat I'd grown

Many nets I'll pull with my strong hands
But it hurts with every fish I land
I'll sail out upon the the sea
But a farmer I will always be

Skipper said he was a good fisherman
Not afraid of hard work, a good man in a jam
But he had a shadow behind his eyes
The sadness could not be disguised

Many nets I'll pull with my strong hands
But it hurts with every fish I land
I'll sail out upon the the sea
But a farmer I will always be

One night he took a small small boat
Far far to sea he did float
Storm it came to take him away
On earth he could no longer stay
On earth he could no longer stay
