Men Of Worth Irish song lyrics and guitar chords, written by Archie Fisher and recorded by Mary Black.
 

[G]Leave the land behind, laddie, you've better days to find
The[C] companies have the mon[G]ey and they'll so[Am]on teach you the sk[D7]ills
Gre[G]en fields far away, laddie, the forties and the brae
Be a mud[C]man or a rou[G]stabo[Em]ut, you'll soon [D]learn how to[G] drill

But[D] who will tend the sheep when[C] I'm far o'er the [G]deep?
On the Nep[C]tune or the Sea[G]quest when the sn[Am]ow comes to the[D7] hill

Leave the fishing trade, laddie, there's money to be made
The hand-line and the Shetland yawl are from a bygone day
Come to Aberdeen, laddie; sights you've never seen!
Be a welder on the pipeline or a fitter at Nigg Bay

But when the job is o'er and my boat rots on the shore
How will I feed my family when the companies move away?

There's harbours to be built, lads, rigs to tow and tilt
To rest upon the ocean bed, like pylons in the sea
Pipelines to be laid and a hundred different trades
That will pay a decent living wage to the likes of you and me

I ken you're men of worth; you're the best that's in the north
Not men of greed, but men who need the work that's come your way
From Flotta to Kishorn a new industry is born
Now Peterhead and Cromarty will never be the same
