 I,m leaving the fishing,the life I have know
The battle with nature,that nobody won
The fishstocks are dwindling and the shoals hard to find
 I,m leaving the fishing,I,ve made up my mind
 My father worked drifters  my grandfather too
 My brother,s a skipper, on the Elena Mae
 And I worked at the fishing,just as soon as I could
 So leaving,s no easy,the sea,s in my blood

 Farewell to the haven,my heart it is sad
 The driffters I,m leaving,to work on the land
 I,II wiss the wee boats, though my thought are there yet         
 Wi the lads on the Jeannie, hauling the net
 We worked hard together,and we laughed hard as well
 Cursing the weather, and riding the swell
 Farewell to the haven,my heart it is sad
 The driffters I,m leaving,to work on the land

 I,II work in the”wire-mill, it,s a good job they say
 I,II start and I,II finish,the same time every day
 The money is constant and my wife she seems pleased
 But I,II miss the fishing and I,II miss the sea
 
Koor
 
 I,m leaving the fishing,the life I have known
 The batlle with nature,that nobody,s won
 The fishstocks are dwindling and theshoals haed to find
  I,m leaving the fishing
  I,ve – made – up – my - mind
