SWANSEA TOWN
(John Davies & Billy Jewell)
(additional lyric by Max Boyce)

CHORUS:
I'm going home to Swansea Town:
The day is nearly dawning.
I'm going home to the seaport sound
One lovely seatown morning.

I'm going home to Swansea Town:
To where the ways are brambled.
'Neath the seatown sky where seagulls cry
Where as a boy I rambled.

And she'll be waiting there for me;
She'll be glad to see me.
And I'll not leave my town again;
A fortune won't persuade me.

I'm going home to Swansea Town:
The day is nearly dawning.
I'm going home to the seaport sound.
One lovely seatown morning.
One lovely seatown morning.

Sorry
I should have said that the first two lines are also the Chorus. Baz

SWANSEA TOWN


CHORUS
I'm going home to Swansea town, the day is almost dawning
I'm going back to those sea port sounds, one lovely sea town morning.

I'm going home to Swansea town, to where those ways are brambled
' Neath the seatown sky, where seagulls fly and as a boy I rambled.

Long years ago I sailed away, the urge to roam came creeping
Yet somehow my heart got left behind, with a girl who stood there weeping.

In the quiet hours of the night time watch, I dream her there beside me
I see her face, I feel her grace, and peace wells up inside me.

I hope she's there beside that quay, I hope she's glad to see me
And I'll not leave that town again, no fortune will assuade me.

I think this may have been written by Max Boyce but I learned it recently from a friend who sings with a shanty group.
regards Baz
