Fidjit,

Is this what you are looking for?


Fisherman's Wharf

It was in the spring this year of grace with new life pushing through
That I looked from the Citadel down to the Narrows and asked what it's coming to.
I saw Upper Canadian concrete and glass right down to the water line,
And I heard an old song down on Fisherman's Wharf.
Can I sing it just one time?

With half-closed eyes against the sun, for the warm wind giving thanks,
I dreamed of the years of the deep-laden schooners thrashing home from the Grand Banks.
The last lies done in the harbour sun with her picture on a dime,
But I heard an old song down on Fisherman's Wharf,
Can I sing it just one time?
Can I sing it just one time?

CHORUS:
Then haul away and heave her home. This song is heard no more
No boats to sing it for. No sails to sing it for.
There rises now a single tide of tourists passing through.
We traded old ways for the new, old ways for the new,
Old ways for the new, for the new.

Now you ask "What's this romantic boy who laments what's done and gone?

There was no romance on a cold winter ocean and the gales sang an awful song."
But my fathers knew of wind and tide and my blood is maritime,
And I heard an old song down on Fisherman's Wharf.
Can I sing it just one time?
Can I sing it Just one time?

CHORUS

(Repeat 1st verse)

This was all I found on a quick Google search. Also another song about "tiny fish to Japan".

Roger in Baltimore

Fishermen's Wharf is probably my favorite Stan song, although I sing enough of his stuff to be considered a one man tribute band.....LOL.

All the best,

Mick

Fidjit:

Not meaning to sound like a wiseass here, but first try google-searching by typing in the title or a line from the song, the writer if you know him/her/them, and the word "lyrics." It has served me well.

Friend was listening to Fisherman's Wharf one time (back when it was new) - and suddenly exclaimed, resentfully, "It's not Upper Canadian concrete and glass - it's Nova Scotian concrete and glass!"

(We were living only a few blocks away from the concrete and glass in question at the time).

Not really a Stan Rogers' song in that the lyrics are by the Victorian author (of The Water Babies) Charles Kingsley. Presumably the melody is Stan's?

Ah thanks. That was nice to know.

Didn't Garnet write the tune to 'Three Fishers'?
Nathan also does a great version on his CD.
And I also do it, but not as well as Rogers & Son! :-)
    I'm going to close this thread because the lyrics have been posted in other threads. See Stan Rogers crosslinks above, and also the threads on Kingsley's Three Fishers. -Joe Offer-
