Mysha Origins: Shoals of Herring (MacColl) (121* d) RE: Origins: Shoals of Herring (MacColl) 08 Oct 15


I've just listened to parts of the documentary The Shoals of Herring. At the end is a song consisting of just these two verses (as I hear it):

With our nets and gear we're faring
On the wild and wasteful ocean
It's there on the deep that we harvest and reap
our bread
As we hunt the bonny shoals of herring

Neither men nor ships we're sparing
As we waste the wild crop of the ocean
Sowing no seed in the sea for tomorrow's need
We may see no more the shoals of herring

I didn't go through it all to see whether the entire song also makes an appearance, though.
