Dear friend,
in my version it sounds:

"Where the strawberry beds sweep down to the Liffey"

Here you are the lyrics. Have fun.


THE FERRYMAN
(Pete St John)
As recorded by The Dublin City Ramblers on "Dublin City Ramblers Live" (2007)

Oh, the little boats are gone from the breast of Anna Liffey
And the ferrymen are stranded on the Quay.
Sure the Dublin Docks is dyin' and a way of life is gone,
And, Molly, it was part of you and me.

CHORUS: Where the strawberry beds sweep down to the Liffey,
You'll kiss away the worries from my brow.
I love you well today and I'll love you more tomorrow.
If you've ever loved me, Molly, love me now.

2. 'Twas the only job I knew; it was hard but never lonely.
The Liffey ferry made a man of me.
Now it's gone without a whisper, half forgotten even now.
Sure, it's over, Molly, over; can't you see? CHORUS

3. Now I'll tend the yard and I'll spend my days in talkin'
And I'll hear them whisper: "Charlie's on the dole"
But, Molly, we're still livin' and, darlin', we're still young,
And the river never owned me, heart and soul. CHORUS

-----------
