Lyrics

Since the Cod left our shores in 92’
Men in big suits they came lookin’
The prospect for oil in our broken land
Brought big Dollar signs to their eyes

Chorus:
Now they’re fishin’ for oil in our waters
Where our fathers fished for generations
Replaced their jiggers for big oil drills
Now worst of all we’re losing children

The big mechanical bird fell down from the sky
Causin’ devastation and destruction
When the news came in in a couple of days
We lost sixteen sons and a daughter

Chorus

We let the oil companies do as they please
Rape our land of all our children
But in the end what’s a people to do
What are we to do? What are we to do?

Chorus

Fishin’ for oil in our waters

 

I am grateful to William Collins for sending me the lyrics to his song.
