lyrics

Fiddler's Green

Down by the dockside one evening so fair
To view the salt waters and take in the salt air
I heard an old sailor man singing a song
Said take me away boys my time is not long

Chorus:
Wrap me up in my oilskins and jumpers
No more on the docks I'll be seen
Just tell me old shipmates, I'm taking a trip mates
And I'll see you someday on Fiddlers Green

Fiddler's Green is a place I've hear tell
Where old sailors go if they don't go to hell
Where the weather is fair and the dolphins do play
And the cold coast of Greenland is far, far away

(Chorus)

when you get to the dock and that long trip is through
There's pubs and there's clubs and there's lassies there too
And the girls are all pretty and the beer is all free
And there's bottles of rum growing on every tree.

(Chorus)

I don't want a harp nor a halo, not me
Just give me a boat and a good rolling sea
I'll play my mandolin as we sail along
And the wind in the riggin will sing me this song

(Chorus)
