The Kishorn Commando’s (Gordon Menzies)

  We’re the Kishorn Commandos way up in Wester Ross
  We’ve never had a gaffer, we’ve never had a boss
  We’ll build the biggest oil-rig you’ve ever come across
  Remember we’re the Kishorn Commandos

Early every morning we get wakened by a shout
Get up, ye idle buggers, won’t you get the finger out
And what do we get for breakfast? Seven pints of stout
Remember we’re the Kishorn Commandos

Digging down a dusty hole till we can hardly speak
Summer sunshine, rain or snow, we seldom stop to sleep
We work for forty hours a day and fourteen days a week
Remember we’re the Kishorn Commandos

We’re working down a dusty hole till we can hardly speak
Summer sunshine rain or snow we seldom stop to sleep
We work for forty hours a day fourteen days a week
Remember we’re the Kishorn Commandos

We’ve never joined the Navy, we’ve never joined the RAF
We’ve never joined the army, we’re not so bloody daft
We’d rather go to Kishorn and get paid for skivin’ aff
Remember we’re the Kishorn Commandos

And when the job is over we’ll up and pack our bags
We’ll spend the money on the booze, the women and the nags
But until then we’ll have to do wi’ navvies dressed in drag
Remember we’re the Kishorn Commandos

  1. I’m not an authority by any stretch of the imagination, but on the guitar I play this tune in D / G / D / A / G / D / G / D (rather simple chord sequence as the song doesn’t really have any bridge of sorts).

    All the best, Uwe

  2. Hi i am looking for the sheet music for this song and cannot find it anywhere online, would anyone be able to help me find it.
    Its for piano accordion.
    Thanks Helen
