Leave your cranes and your muckle gantries

And I spotted in the Youtube sidebar of that Dick Gaughan video a link to one of him singing Hamish Henderson's great song of praise to the famous early 20th century Glasgow socialist John Maclean. I once shared a platform (briefly) with Hamish Henderson, who was one of my heroes (he received an honorary doctorate from the University of Edinburgh in the same ceremony at which I received my MBA). Apparently he was once asked which of the hundreds of cover versions of his famous song he liked best: he picked this one. Enjoy.
