Try these:

NEVER TELL A TRAWLERMAN GOODBYE
(One More Trip - Dave & Julie Evardson CD)
D Evardson

As he stops and rests his kitbag at the door,
In the stillness while his taxi's standing by.
You can say see you next trip, love nothing more,
But you never tell a trawlerman goodbye

It's hard to face an icy winter's morning,
When he's off to brave an Arctic sea and sky.
You embrace him while he's shivering and yawning,
But you never tell a trawlerman goodbye.

When the Humber takes his trawler out to sea,
When you see him off you do it silently.
With a smile, a kiss, a cuddle and a sigh,
But you never tell a trawlerman goodbye.

The day he sails can't be your washing day,
You will have to put it off however dry.
There's a danger you'd be washing him away,
And you never tell a trawlerman goodbye.

Don't think about the dangers of the trawling,
He's got to go so keep your chin up high.
He doesn't need to see your teardrops falling,
So you never tell a trawlerman goodbye.
Chorus

There's only one goodbye for trawlermen,
Don't speak or let him see it in your eye.
Say a silent prayer he'll come back safe again,
But you never tell a trawlerman goodbye.

When the Humber takes his trawler out to sea,
When you see him off you do it silently.
With a smile, a kiss, a cuddle and a sigh,
But you never tell a trawlerman goodbye.
