Bill Staines – Liverpool Light lyrics
Liverpool Light
By Bill Staines
I've sailed this island for most of my life
All the way from the Minch to Dundee
And in Liverpool once I did take me a wife
And it's her that I'm longing to see
Cho: Singing, Shine, shine, Liverpool light
Shine on your children below;
Singing, Shine, shine, Liverpool light
Shine on your children below
Shine on your children below
Three months ago April I left her with child
A child that was mine sure as she
But she'd not complain, for she's gentle and mild
And it's her that I'm longing to see
Cho
I've sinned a lot, for a sinner I be;
As a sailor, I've sailed in the storms
But in Liverpool, thatõs where I'm longing to be
With her arms wrapped around me so warm
Cho
When the light from your tower is all that I see
And her footsteps they run to the door
Then I'll lift up my glass, and for all men to see
I will vow to go sailing no more
Cho
