The Wark O The Weavers
David Shaw
[D] We're a' met thegither here tae [G] sit an' tae [D] crack,
Wi' oor glesses in oor hands an' oor [G] wark upon oor [A] back;
[D] For there's nae a trade amang them a' can [G] either mend or [D] mak',
Gin it qasna for the wark o' the [A] weav- [D] -ers.
Chorus :
[D] If it wasna for the [A] weavers [G] what wad they [A] do?
[G] They wadna [D] hae claith [G] made oot o' oor [A] woo';
They [D] wadna hae a coat, [G] neither black nor [D] blue,
Gin it wasna for the wark o' the [A] weav- [D] -ers.
There's some folk independent o' ither tradesmen's wark,
For women need nae barber an' dyker's need nae clerk;
But there's no ane o' them but needs a coat an' a sark,
No, they canna want the wark o' the weavers.
There's smiths an' there's wrights and there's mason chiels an' a',
There's doctors an' there's meenisters an' them that live by law,
An' oor freens that bide oot ower the sea in Sooth America,
An' they a' need the wark o' the weavers.
Oor sodgers an' oor sailors, oh, we mak' them a' bauld,
For gin they hadna claes, faith, they couldna fecht for cauld;
The high an' low, the rich an' puir - a'body young an' auld,
They a' need the wark o' the weavers.
So the weavin' is a trade that never can fail,
Sae lang's we need ae cloot tae haud anither hale,
Sae let us a' be merry ower a bicker o' guid ale.
An' drink tae the health o' the weavers.
