"Liverpool Docks" lyrics

Liverpool Docks

Once knew a man who thought he was another guy
He was living a lie
He took a chance by roaming streets in the night
Till he learned how to fight
He met trouble one night
Another man with his wife
So he brought out his knife
Didn't mean to take his life
Now he's got to get away
Hear him say

"I'm going down to the Liverpool docks
Try to hitch a ride
Ain't gonna break no rocks
And I never had a friend
I never needed one

I'm going down to the silvery sea
I'm gonna go some place
Where they won't find me
And maybe I can go
Where I won't ever have to come back again"

Let's go

He took his time
Lived his life alone
And his thoughts were his own
He lived in a place
He'd never heard of before
In block number four
Then one night at his door
He stood facing the law
On the paper he saw
What they wanted him for
They're gonna take him back
And he said

"I'm going back to the Liverpool docks
Gonna take a ride
Gotta break some rocks
And I never had a friend
But I never needed one

Take a ride on the silvery sea
I'm gonna go some place
Where they won't find me
And I don't wanna go
Cause I know
That I'll never come back again"

"I'm going down to the Liverpool docks
Try to hitch a ride
Ain't gonna break no rocks
And I never had a friend
I never needed one"
