To Paradise Alley from Harmony Row

 

It’s still on the quayside

The last ship has gone

And no work in the stockyards

There’s no work for a man

So we’ll pack our belongings

And we’ll ready to go

To Paradise Alley

From Harmony Row

 

Farewell to Glasgow

Farewell to the Clyde

I can take on the world, love

With you by my side

So come along Rachel

A frittin’ we’ll go

To Paradise Alley

From Harmony Row

 

If I were a rhymer

And could write from my heart

All my verses would tell you

How it pains us to part

But we’ll follow the foreman

Where the work is we’ll go

To Paradise Alley

From Harmony Row

 

Farewell to Glasgow

Farewell to the Clyde

I can take on the world, love

With you by my side

So come along Rachel

A frittin’ we’ll go

To Paradise Alley

From Harmony Row

 

When we are older

And the labouring’s through

We’ll meet by the river

As old lovers do

And if it’s His will, love

Together we’ll go

From Paradise Alley

To Harmony Row

 

Farewell to Glasgow

Farewell to the Clyde

I can take on the world, love

With you by my side

So come along Rachel

A frittin’ we’ll go

To Paradise Alley

From Harmony Row
