The chords to The Ferryman are presented here in the key of A Major – the key used by The Dubliners with Patsy Watchorn on vocals.

 
The  
A 
little boats are gone from the  
D 
breast of Anna  
A 
Liffey
 
The  
D 
ferryman is stranded on the  
E 
quay
 
Sure the  
A 
Dublin docks is dying and a  
D 
way of life is  
A 
gone
 
And  
E 
Molly it was  
E7 
part of you and  
A 
me

Chorus

 
Where the  
E 
Strawberry beds sweep  
D 
down to the  
A 
Liffey
 
You  
D 
kissed away the worry from my  
E 
brow
 
I  
A 
love you well today and I’ll  
D 
love you more to  
A 
morrow
 
If you  
E 
ever loved me  
E7 
Molly love me  
A 
now

T’was the only job I knew, it was hard but never lonely

The Liffey ferry made a man of me

And it’s gone without a whisper and forgotten even now

And sure it’s over Molly over can’t you see

Well now I’ll tend the yard and I’ll spend me days in talking

And I’ll hear them whisper Charlie’s on the dole

But Molly we’re still living and darling we’re still young

And that river never owned me heart and soul
