Port of Bilbao - Lyrics

it's a long way down from edinburgh from the docks of portsmouth
town
it's a long way down from edinburgh but further to where i'm bound
he put a fine ring on my finger so thin and he gave me his solemn
vow
and he said that he would be waiting for me in the beautiful port of
bilbao

there's many a mighty fine ship to be found in the depths of the
bizkaia bay
with cannons and sailors that roared so loud as they sank their
watery way
still i'll pray to the lord and I'll
clamber aboard the first boat with a
wake to its bow
cos he said that he would be waiting for me in the beautiful port of
bilbao

he's pretty, oh yes he be pretty for sure, he's the bonniest boy that
i've seen
and oh how he danced me around and around in his jacket of jaunty
green

but there's still no sign of his coat so fine as i stand on the deck
looking out
and he said that he would be waiting for me in the beautiful port of
bilbao

oh sister dear, oh sister far beyond the sea's dark foam
take heed of them handsome young men and their money who'd acharm
you from your home
for if i'd not a curse on a gentleman's purse i sure do now
every night after ten i'll be
waiting for them in the beautiful port of
bilbao
