those men on the lonely trawlers

For a good few years I have thought the fishermen of Scotland have had a raw deal from EU and governmental bureaucracy, yet those still plying their living on the seas around our Scottish coast deserve better, I feel. Anyway, I composed this wee tune that I felt still portrays these hardy folk, there character and nature, including all the womenfolk involved in the industry, families, etc.

The last line is slowed to 90 bpm gradually form the lively main tune.

If you cannot write a tune down that you can play so that they are identical, how can you truly say you know the tune!
