The Ferryman Videos

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


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
