W:As I walked by the dockside one evening so fair,
W:To view the salt waters and take the salt air,
W:I heard an old fisherman singing this song,
W:Oh, take me away boys, me time is not long.
W:Wrap me up in me oilskins and jumper,
W:No more on the docks I'll be seen,
W:Just tell me old shipmates I'm taking a trip, mates,
W:And I'll see you someday on Fiddler's Green.
W:Now Fiddler's Green is a place I've heard tell,
W:Where the fishermen go if they don't go to Hell,
W:Where the skies are all clear and the dolphins do play,
W:And the cold coast of Greenland is far, far away.
W:Where the sky's are all clear and there's never a gale,
W:And the fish jump on board with a swish of their tail,
W:You can lie at your leisure, there's no work to do,
W:And the skipper's below making tea for the crew.
W:Now when you're in dock and the long trip is through,
W:There's pubs and there's clubs, and there's lassies there too,
W:Where the girls are all pretty and the beer it is free,
W:And there's bottles of rum growing on every tree.
W:Now I don't want a harp or a halo, not me,
W:Just give me a breeze and a good rolling sea,
W:I'll play me old squeeze box as we sail along,
W:With the wind in the rigging to sing me this song.
