Hi Guest,Gavjoines,

Someone here may be able to help you with the chords, but there is also a sheet music songbook available from Vin Garbutt's website:

Vin Garbutt SongBook - Volume One (Book)

Not For the First Time is included.

Helen

Well, Gavin, how is that for jolly good luck and some serendipity as well?

I was carefully edging around the conversation about supporting artists by buying their products, and there you are, doing just that.

Yes, RIP Mr Garbutt, but I suspect he'll be having a rollicking good time in heaven, entertaining everyone he meets.

A little late to the party but I've had a go at writing out the lyrics and chords. There's a couple of parts where I'm not to sure of the words ("They built a little ? with workers on the dole"). I can't quite get the chords to line-up when copying to the message box.

NOT FOR THE FIRST TIME – VIN GARBUTT
G                        D
The children wait by the dockyard gate
D                           Em         C
The very last time bringing daddy’s bait
C
What’ll be their fates
       D                  G
This is not for the first time.

He’s moving down south when the gate slammed shut
Going for a job, down there there is a glut
His father went before, on foot
Cos it’s not for the first time.

CHORUS
G                               Em
Well it’s just not fair all the work’s down there
    D                      Em             C         
You try to point it out but who is there to care
C
The north is in despair
         D                G
And it’s not for the first time.
        
They’re closing down the shipyards and closing down the pits
There’s people emigrating and there’s marriages in bits
There’s family splits
And it’s not for the first time.

Just across the river in the town of Hartlepool
They built a little (?) with workers on the dole
It seems to want your soul not your coal
And it’s not for the first time.

CHORUS
Well it’s just not fair all the work’s down there
You try to point it out but who is there to care
The north is in despair
And it’s not for the first time.

SOLO

The South wears the money belt, the North wears the yoke
The South is the honey (?) unemployment is a joke to them
Up here we get the dust and smoke
And it’s not for the first time.

So the children wait by the dockyard gate
I only hope and pray they will never share their fate
Of their daddy who’s late today
Of their daddy who’s late getting paid
Their daddy who’s late getting paid for the very last time.
