Clyde-Built

Very rough, yet – not been sung through.

When will we see their like again?
Oh the rise and the fall of the tide
Clyde-bred women and Clyde-built men
All along the banks of the River Clyde

Along the back you lay a keel
Oh the rise and the fall of the tide
Ribs and bones of lanarkshire steel
All along the banks of the River Clyde

A handful of mud from the river bank
Oh the rise…
To flesh the muscle, arms and flank
All along the banks…

Clyde-bred women and their weans
Red lead paint ran in their veins

Strong women on the Clyde were bred
The river was filled by the tears they shed

When the last of them is laid in dust
Ashes to ashes, rust to rust

They battled then, we battle now
Will be buckle, will we bow?

Stand and let them not forget
Red Clyde heart is beating yet

When will we see their like again?
Oh the rise and the fall of the tide
Clyde-bred women and Clyde-built men
All along the banks of the River Clyde
