lyrics

He told me that the Kirkbrides were border raiders,
I always wondered what my bloodlines were,
And in that smokey room, he told me over a beer or two,
And I'm following directions he suggested.
He showed me some pictures that he had of his woman,
And down at her feet were kids with curly hair,
And over a tear or two we talked about the girl we knew,
And I'm following directions he suggested.

He took me across the water, with the other children
And his Liverpool daughter, far away.
Oh I miss you Mama, I miss you everyday,
Oh I miss you Mama, I miss you everyday.
He told me that his whole life had exploded,
And that for a while he'd been treading on air,
And over a beer or two we talked about the girl we knew,
And I'm following directions he suggested.

He took me across the water with the other children
And his Liverpool daughter, far away.
Oh I miss you Mama, I miss you everyday,
Oh I miss you Mama, I miss you everyday.
