They used to build big ships here
They used to make them tall
Now there are no shipyards here at all
They used to dig for coal here
They used to scrape and crawl
Now there are no coalfields here at all

Chorus...

Steelmen , miners , shipwrights and sailors
Steelmen , miners , shipwrights and sailors
We'll never see their likes again
No more workers
Its gone the way of all good things

They used to forge the steel there
They'd sweat through every pore
Now there are no steelworks anymore
They used to land their catch here
The silver darlings run
Ah but now the fishing is all gone

Chorus...

Tall masts would sail from shipyards
"Pride of the Clyde " they'd say
Now all the ships have gone away

Chorus...
