The Ferryman

The Ferryman

All the little boats are gone,
From the banks(?) upon the Liffey,
The ferrymen are stranded on the quay,
Oh the Dublin docks are dying,
and a way of life was gone,
and Molly it was a part of you and me.

    Where the strawberry beds,
    Sweep down to the Liffey,
    I(You) kiss away the worries from your(my) brow,
    Cause I love you well today,
    and I'll love you more tomorrow,
    And if you ever loved me Molly love me now

Twas the only job I knew,
It was hard but never lonely,
The Liffey Ferry made a man of me,
But it's gone without a whisper
Forgotten even now,
Oh it's over Molly over can't you see

   [Chorus]

But now I'll tend the yard,
And spend me days a talking
I hear them whisper Charlie's on the dole
But Molly we're still livin'
and darling we're still young,
That river never owned my heart and soul.

   [Chorus]
