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] GE oct99
