Description

We wrote this song with the lobster fishermen and women of Atlantic Canada in mind. Just like the kitchen parties that are a mainstay of our small towns and fishing villages, we wrote this song over a beer and recorded it unplugged over a few more........best of luck folks as you deserve a lot more than "Three Bucks a Pound" Three Bucks a Pound - Written by Jason Martell - Performed by Matt and Marty Now the life of a fisherman is the life that I've chose Outta bed early and into your clothes With the lads on the wharf, we'll set out to sea With the hopes of a fine catch for our families Chorus Three bucks a pound, the man said to me That's all you'll get on the wharf now ya see You can take it or leave it but I'll offer no more Three bucks a pound and they'll show you the door So we got in our trucks, and we're headed to town With a large double double, we're DFO bound By the hundreds we came till we numbered two grand With fire in our bellies and signs in our hands Three bucks a pound, the man said to me That's all you'll get on the wharf now ya see You can take it or leave it but I'll offer no more Three bucks a pound and they'll show you the door It's not so much me, that I think of in bed Case of beer in the fridge and my kids are all fed But what of young Johnson who just got his gear He'll be headed out west to the oil patch next year Three bucks a pound, the man said to me That's all you'll get on the wharf now ya see You can take it or leave it but I'll offer no more Three bucks a pound and they'll show you the door So I'll close out my song with a wish for the bold Who risk life and limb for that shiny red gold Stick to your guns and never back down You deserve a lot more than three bucks a pound Three bucks a pound, the man said to me That's all you'll get on the wharf now ya see You can take it or leave it but I'll offer no more Three bucks a pound and they'll show you the door Three bucks a pound and they'll show you the door
