RIVER MERSEY rolling along Like some old forgotten song Melodies like memories float Of sailing ships and ferry boats Of slave ships with their black cargo And trading ships with bows hung low All sailing on your outgoing waves Like tunes upon a guitar plays Troop ships sailing off to war Or liners for some far off shore Oh river how you call the tune With ebbing tides obeying moon Still we listen to your song And watch you as you roll along Like a father you protected us In times of war, all dirt and dust As a mother you fed our babes Bringing food upon your waves You are our heart, so strong and cool Beating with life for Liverpool Freda Renton, Croxteth Park
