Lyrics

BLACK GOLD

« Back to Discography

THERE'S GOOD MONEY DON'T YOU HEAR SAID THE MAN DOWN BY THE PIER. FOR THE SEA IS ALIVE AND IT'S CALLING. WON'T YOU CHOOSE THE NEW BLACK GOLD WHERE ONCE THE HERRING SHOALED, THERE'S BLACK GOLD IN THE DEEP WATERS JOHNNY.


CHORUS: WHERE THE NORTH SEAWIND IS BLOWING AND THE DAY IS A LIFETIME TOO LONG WHERE WE DRILL SWEAT AND TOIL TO TAKE THE OCEAN'S OIL, THERE'S BLACK GOLD IN THE DEEP WATERS JOHNNY.


THERE ARE MEN FROM SCAFFALOW AND THE KID FROM SANDY ROW AND SEDCO MEN WHO LOOK ALL SPIFF AND SPARKLE, AND THE MONEY SPENDING BINGE JOY RIDING ON THE RIGS AND YOU'LL CHASE THE NEW BLACK GOLD WITHOUT YOUR GARGLE.


CHORUS: WHERE THE NORTH SEAWIND IS BLOWING AND THE DAY IS A LIFETIME TOO LONG WHERE WE DRILL SWEAT AND TOIL TO TAKE THE OCEAN'S OIL, THERE'S BLACK GOLD IN THE DEEP WATERS JOHNNY.


THERE'S TWELVE HOUR SHIFTS TO DO PLAYING NURSE MATE TO THE CREW THERE'S LONELINESS AND FEAR IN EMPTY OCEANS FROM THE SHETLANDS TO THE KESH THE'RE CHASING OIL INSTEAD OF FISH FOR BLACK GOLD IN THE DEEP WATERS JOHNNY.


CHORUS: WHERE THE NORTH SEAWIND IS BLOWING AND THE DAY IS A LIFETIME TOO LONG WHERE WE DRILL SWEAT AND TOIL TO TAKE THE OCEAN'S OIL, THERE'S BLACK GOLD IN THE DEEP WATERS JOHNNY.


FOR THE RIGS ME SECOND HOME SITTING PRETTIER THEN FOAM, A WAY OF LIFE THAT'S NEW TO EVERY NATION, AND THERE'S A HUNDRED EXTRA QUID TO GO DIVIN WITH SQUID FOR BLACK GOLD IN THE DEEP WATERS JOHNNY.


CHORUS: WHERE THE NORTH SEAWIND IS BLOWING AND THE DAY IS A LIFETIME TOO LONG WHERE WE DRILL SWEAT AND TOIL TO TAKE THE OCEAN'S OIL, THERE'S BLACK GOLD IN THE DEEP WATERS JOHNNY.
