lyrics

To be a Sheffield grinder it is no easy trade
There’s more than you’d imagine to the grinding of a blade
The strongest man amongst us is old at thirty-two
There’s few who brave such hardships as we poor grinders do

Every working day, we are breathing dust and steel
And a broken stone can give a man a wound that will not heal
There’s many a poor grinder struck down by such a blow
There’s few who brave such hardships as we poor grinders do

There’s many a poor grinder whose family is large
With all his best endeavours cannot his debts discharge
His children cry for bread, oh how pitiful the view
There’s few who brave such hardships as we poor grinders do

There’s many a poor grinder too soon been snatched away
Without a moment’s warning to meet his judgement day
Before his judge he must attest, his final doom to know
There’s few who brave such hardships as we poor grinders do

So now we must conclude these few and humble lines
Good luck to every grinder who labours in hard times
I wish him better fortune and all his family too
There’s few who brave such hardships as we poor grinders do
