We're taking on water diesel and stores
Laying up awhile before I'm back on board
They're patching her up to go fishing again

They're welding her rudder scrubbing her keel
Scars on her belly need time to heal
In the dock with the trawler men

I know all the people there's nobody new
Soon we'll be leaving with the same old crew
On the green water the tumbling sea

They ain't running like the good old days
Time's just slipping down the old slipways
In the dock so dear to me
