Harbour Town

Julian Austin/Barry Mathers

 

Itís four in the morning got no place to go

Spent all my money and George Street is closed

Lord itís cold, cold, cold

Iím the last one to leave, all my brothers moved on

You canít make a living here, the fishingís all gone

And I ainít gonna just sit around 

Just growing old, old, old

 

Itís my last night in my hometown

Iím gonna miss this place

Itís just like walking on sacred ground

Might be the last time I watch the sun go down

On this Harbour Town

 

The lady took my ticket and I heard her say

Youíre lookiní kinda tired, son you okay

And I said yes maíam

Itís just been one long lonely day

You see my brothers got a job out there waiting for me

He says itís hard work but itís real good money

And right now thatís what I need

 

This is the last night in my hometown

I hate to leave this place, man itís bringing me so damn down

Might be the last time

I see my old man around

In this harbour town

 

Iím just another one in a long line

That couldnít make it here

Though it ainít my fault I feel so bad

Itís bringing me to tears

 

Itís my last night in my home town

Iím gonna miss this place

Itís just like walking on sacred ground

It might be the last time

Iíll watch the sun go down

On this harbour town

 

Man Iím gonna miss my harbour town

Itís been like walking on sacred ground

And to leave here is bringing me so damn down

This might be the last time I watch the sun go down

In this harbour town

In my pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty harbour town

 

Itís been like walking, walking on sacred ground

Oh and I hate to leave here

Itís bringing me so damn down
