Ribbon Road lyrics


Shipbuilders

I've been in the yard since morning
hammering in the rib
since 7 o'clock, I'm yawning now
if I was a miner I'd have to dig

chorus
come and build ships with us, build ships
build them night and day
come and build ships with us, big ships
and sail away

it's hard to know you're good enough
when the hammer is in your hand
the nails must go in true with love
it's hard to be a man

chorus

I'll see you there tomorrow
it'll be a brand new start
bring your boots and hard hat
but don't protect your heart

I would stay and have another one with you
but my eyes just want to close
and when I hit the pillow
I'll be dreaming of the roses
