Woods And Water (The Landsmen)

We will work the woods and water,
Side by side with sons and daughters,
Living lives our grandfathers knew;
We survived down through the ages,
Simple folks in fishing stages;
And we make no apologies it's true,
For the things we do.

Our words come quick; they may seem strange,
To curse the sea; we've quite a range;
To tell a tale we'll tell a lie,
It keeps the twinkle in our eye.

We will work the woods and water,
Side by side with sons and daughters,
Living lives our grandfathers knew;
We survived down through the ages,
Simple folks in fishing stages;
And we make no apologies it's true,
For the things we do.

We'll drink until the day is done,
But always first to help someone;
Stay beside the family tree,
Music box upon our knee.

We will work the woods and water,
Side by side with sons and daughters,
Living lives our grandfathers knew;
We survived down through the ages,
Simple folks in fishing stages;
And we make no apologies it's true,
For the things we do.

We're put down on the printed page,
They say we're from another age;
But we've got some news of our own,
This will always be our home.

We will work the woods and water,
Side by side with sons and daughters,
Living lives our grandfathers knew;
We survived down through the ages,
Simple folks in fishing stages;
And we make no apologies it's true,
For the things we do.
