In DT the lyrics of Ewan MacColl's Net Hauling Song consist of four verses. This is the version heard on the 'Singing the Fishing' radio ballad, and also as recorded separately by MacColl. However, on one of Luke Kelly's recordings of the song there is a fifth, final verse:
Now the season is over so be on your way,
And head for the home port to sign for your pay;
Your missus will be waiting to welcome you home,
It's so hard for a wife to be so much alone,
Does anyone know whether this verse was written by MacColl but omitted from the radio ballad and his own recording, or whether it was added by the Dubliners? It certainly rounds off the song better than the last verse of the DT version.
