I Wish I Were Back In Liverpool Lyrics

I wish I was back in Liverpool, Liverpool town where I
was born
Where there ain't no trees, no scent of grease, no
field's of waving corn
But there's lots of girls with peroxide curls and the
black and tan flows free
There's six in a bed by the old pier head and it's
Liverpool town for me

'Tis seven long years since I wandered away to sail the
wild world o'er
Me very first trip on an old steam ship that was bound
for Baltimore
I was seven days sick and I just couldn't stick that
bobbin' up and down
So I told them "Jack, you'd better turn back for dear
old Liverpool town"

I wish I was back in Liverpool, Liverpool town where I
was born
Where there ain't no trees, no scent of grease, no
field's of waving corn
But there's lots of girls with peroxide curls and the
black and tan flows free
There's six in a bed by the old pier head and it's
Liverpool town for me

We dug the Mersey tunnel, boys, way back in thirty-
three
Dug an hole in the ground until we found an hold called
Wallasey
Then the foreman cried "Come on, outside! The roof is
fallin' down"
While I'm tellin' you, Jack, we all swum back to dear
old Liverpool town

I wish I was back in Liverpool, Liverpool town where I
was born
Where there ain't no trees, no scent of grease, no
field's of waving corn
But there's lots of girls with peroxide curls and the
black and tan flows free
There's six in a bed by the old pier head and it's
Liverpool town for me

There's every race and colour of face, there's every
kind of name
But the pigeons on the pier head they treat you all the
same
And if you walk up upon Parlament Street you'll get
faces black and brown
And I've also seen the orange-green in dear old
Liverpool town

I wish I was back in Liverpool, Liverpool town where I
was born
Where there ain't no trees, no scent of grease, no
fiel's of waving corn
But there's lots of girls with peroxide curls and the
black and tan flows free
There's six in a bed by the old pier head and it's
Liverpool town for me
