Fisher Woman (Stan MacDonald) tabs
Click Here for tabs.

She's a fisher woman and don't give a damn,
She can run a jigger good as any man;
Born and raise down by the sea,
She, her daddy, and mama made three.
A fisherman's daughter and the only one,
Although he always wanted a son;
He love her more than only words can say,
She love the life of a fisherman.
So it's not hard to understand,
Why today, when we heard her sing...

I'm a fisher woman and I don't give a damn,
I can run a jigger as good as any man;
Make my living from the sea, a fisher woman that me.

A fisher lad from down the shore,
One day came knocking on her door,
Looking for somebody to help him in the fall,
To run the motor and pull the traps,
To mend the nets and things like that.
And the answer that she gave said it all...

I'm a fisher woman and I don't give a damn,
I can run a jigger as good as any man;
Make my living from the sea, a fisher woman that me.

The winter was long and the weather was bad,
This fisher woman and fisher lad,
Decided to get marry one fine day;
The preacher said do you take this man,
To love, honor 'is every command?
And the congregation smile when they heard her say...

I'm a fisher woman and I don't give a damn,
I can run a jigger as good as any man;
Make my living from the sea, a fisher woman that me.
A fisher woman that me.
