Lyr Req: The Dredgin' Song (Archie Fisher)

Subject: Lyric Request: The Dredgin' Song
From: Russell Owen

I am looking for the lyrics to "The Dredgin' Song", as recorded by Archie Fisher on "Will Ye Gang, Love". It starts: "The herring loves the moonlight, the mackeral loves the wind, but the oyster loves the dredgin song for he comes of gentle kind", but it switches tempo and meter (several times!) and I can't make out much more of it except bits and scraps. It's a beautiful song. Any help appreciated!
