Sammy's Bar or the Last Boat's a'Leavin (Cyril Tawney) I went down to Sammy's Bar Hey, the last boat's a'leavin By the shore at Pieta Haul away the daighsoe And my real love, she was there There was sand all in her hair How did sand get in your hair Darling Johnny put it there Been with Johnny all the day Down at Ghajn Tuffheija Bay He's a better man by far Because he's got a Yankee car I went out from Sammy's Bar Had to hire a Yankee car Fourteen days I drank no wine Saving for that love of mine Then one day in Paula square At a paper I did stare Johnny tried a hairpin bend For my love, it was the end Going back to Sammy's Bar I don't need no Yankee car Copyright Dick James Music Ltd. recorded by Golden Ring on Five Days Singing SOF
