Dublin city ramblers singing sailing home.. Lyrics

I'm a liberty boy; that I'll never deny
And I love the old town I was born in
And I rue the day that I sailed away
On a grey November morning

Me love shed a tear as she stood by the pier
But I told her I had to be going
She's my treasure and pearl
She's my old darling girl
But my wild oats I have to be sowing

CHORUS: I'm sailing home to Dublin city
To the one who's waiting for me there
Home again to Dublin city
Oh, how I'm longing to be there

I've seen all the sights of this great world's delights
And I've sailed from Vancouver to Dover
I've hunted the whale and weathered the gale
Now my roving days are all over

For I miss Moore Street smell and the auld Liffey swell
And the pigeon-house lights in the evening
On Sandymount strand where we walked hand in hand
And we watched while the mail boat was leaving. CHORUS TWICE
