Smokie – Liverpool Docks Lyrics

Take a ride on the silvery sea,
I’m gonna go some place where they won’t find me. And I never had a friend, but I never needed one. And maybe I can go where I won’t ever have to come
back again. And I never had a friend, I never needed one. Now he’s got to get away, hear him say. Chorus: (First)
I’m going down to the Liverpool Docks,
Try to hitch a ride, ain’t gonna break no rocks. Chorus: (First) repeat I’m going down to the silvery sea,
I’m gonna go some place where they won’t find me. He lived in a place he’d never heard of before,
In Block number four. So he brought out his knife, didn’t mean to take his
life. Chorus: (Second)
I’m goin’ back to the Liverpool Docks,
Gonna take a ride, gotta break some rocks. He took his time, lived his life alone,
An’ his thoughts were his own. On the paper he saw, what they wanted him for,
They’re gonna take him back, and he said. He took a chance by roaming the streets in the night,
Till he learned how to fight. Then one night at his door, he stood facing the law. SMOKIELiverpool Docks Lyrics
Once knew a man who thought he was another guy,
he was livin’ a lie. An’ I don’t wanna go ‘cos I know that I’ll never come
back again. He met trouble one night, another man with his wife.
