Steelmen , miners , shipwrights and sailors
                    Steelmen , miners , shipwrights and sailors
                    We'll never see their likes again
                    No more workers
                    Its gone the way of all good things

                    They used to forge the steel there
                    They'd sweat through every pore
                    Now there are no steelworks anymore They used to land
                    their catch here
                    The silver darlings run
                    Ah but now the fishing is all gone

                    Chorus...

                    Tall masts would sail from shipyards "Pride of the Clyde
                    " they'd say
                    Now all the ships have gone away
