Smokie – Liverpool Docks Lyrics

So he brought out his knife, didn’t mean to take his
life. SMOKIELiverpool Docks Lyrics
Once knew a man who thought he was another guy,
he was livin’ a lie. Chorus: (First) repeat Chorus: (First)
I’m going down to the Liverpool Docks,
Try to hitch a ride, ain’t gonna break no rocks. He met trouble one night, another man with his wife. He took a chance by roaming the streets in the night,
Till he learned how to fight. And I never had a friend, I never needed one. And I never had a friend, but I never needed one. I’m going down to the silvery sea,
I’m gonna go some place where they won’t find me. On the paper he saw, what they wanted him for,
They’re gonna take him back, and he said. He lived in a place he’d never heard of before,
In Block number four. An’ I don’t wanna go ‘cos I know that I’ll never come
back again. And maybe I can go where I won’t ever have to come
back again. Then one night at his door, he stood facing the law. He took his time, lived his life alone,
An’ his thoughts were his own. Take a ride on the silvery sea,
I’m gonna go some place where they won’t find me. Chorus: (Second)
I’m goin’ back to the Liverpool Docks,
Gonna take a ride, gotta break some rocks. Now he’s got to get away, hear him say.
