Thread Name: ADD: Silver Darlings (various)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Silver Darlings on Aberdeen's Quay
I wrote the song along with Bob Halfin and Hulskrammer and it's called Silver Darlings. A couple of corrections to the lyrics kindly supplied by Wuzzle:
Oh herrings are harvests that fishermen glean,
They're known as the silver darlings.
Silver darlings on Aberdeen quay,
Brought by the fishermen home from the sea
To the city that stands 'twixt the Don and the Dee,
The home of the Silver Darlings.
It first appeared on an LP I produced with Alastair McDonald singing, Scotland In Song, Nevis 002, 1972.
