Fiddler's Green Lyrics

As I walked down the dockside one evenin' so fair,
To view the still waters and take the salt air,
I heard an old fisherman singin' this song,
Saying, 'Take me away boys. Me time is not long.'
Wrap me up in me oilskins and jumper.
No more on the docks I'll be seen.
Just tell me old shipmates I'm takin' a trip, mates
And I'll see you one day in Fiddler's Green.
Now, Fiddler's Green is a place, I've heard tell,
Where fishermen go if they don't go to hell,

Where the weather is fair and the dolphins do play
And the cold coasts of Greenland are far, far away.
Chorus
Yes, the weather is fair and there's never a gale,
And the fish jump aboard with one swish of their tail.
You can lie in your hammock, there's no work to do,
And the skipper's below makin' tea for the crew.
Chorus
Now, I don't need a harp nor a halo, not me.
Just give me a ship and a good rollin' sea.
And I'll play me old squeeze-box as we roll along
With the wind in the riggin' to sing me a song.
Chorus
