Shipyard Town Lyrics

In a dance hall by the river, I was singing in a traveling band
Just another small town night, with a silver moon shining
I remember when I saw you, that first moment when it all began
You looked across a crowded room and stole my heart away

And we stood out in the moonlight, in the shadow of a factory wall
Music playing soft and low, and a gentle breeze sighing
And the light on the river was magic, yes a magic that I still recall
Moments come and moments go but these moments still remain

Remember how we met, down by the waterside
How easily we forget, all the love that we knew, oh

So we married our fortunes together and we sealed it with a golden band
But somewhere down along the road, we could see the flame dying
Now an exiled heart gets weary, like two strangers in a foreign land
We reached the point of no return, a long, long time ago

Remember how we met, down by the waterside
How easily we forget, all the love that we knew, oh
[Incomprehensible]

[Incomprehensible]
