She sang a song about a river
Just to ease my worried mind
She wore her most gorgeous dress that evening
To say goodbye and leave her past behind
She looked at me with a smile so pretty
Then she turned and the train doors closed
When she left for Dublin City
I knew of all I‘d ever seen
It was her I loved the most

After a fortnight full of sorrow
I packed my trunk one stormy night
But I fell ill the next morning
,Lord help him!‘ exclaimed the doctor with fright
Oh if his god had shown more pity
And I hadn‘t been stuck in my old bed
I‘d have followed her to Dublin City
Where I would have lain
Right next to her instead

It was one bright day in November
When I heard the dreadful news
They found her drowned in the Liffey
I cried and thought that I was bound to lose
But then I ended my self pity
I recovered, I guess that death had drawn a blank
Now whenever I am in Dublin City
You find me in my best suit
On the dirty river bank
