I always reckoned that I knew most songs about liverpool but this one has me stumped. The words would seem to fit as an extra verse into "In my Liverpool Home" apart from the Are you in the Union bit.
It may be worth having a look at some of the Spinners old recordings to see it its there.
Good Hunting

When me and me mates we left our school
Their wasn't much work in Liverpool
We went to the docks again and again
They don't want lads they only want men

Ask Jacqueline MacDonald. She was a Spinner in her youth, and lives now in the Lake Country.

This is Dockers' Way, isn't it? Which I think is one of the Spinners' own songs, although I don't know for sure myself.


When me and me mates we left our school
There wasn't much work in Liverpool
We went to the docks again and again
But they don't staff lads, they only want men

So I joined me dad and me grandad too
Working on Gladstone gate number two
The overtime's dear and I've got a good pen
And I get along fine with the rest of the men

From Garston to Gladstone there were ten miles of docks
Quays and cranes and gates and locks
13,000 side by side
Jones, O'Riley, Hughes, and McBride

We'd talk of politics and the bomb
The union and the things they'd done
Religion and the scales of pay
Conditions as they are today

My grandad had to work and sweat
All the hours that he could get
But now machines are here to stay
There's more time off and better pay
Or so they say...
