lyrics

Drinking by the riverside
Tales from the crypt and of the sea
Jennie's lost her wallet
Fidge has lost his head again
But that's ok that's how it's meant to be

Here's to the Laytown boys
Here's to the Laytown girls
Here's to all the things I didn't know
When I sat at your table, all the rest could go to hell
May your river always
May your river always flow

Burn piano burn
The sun is nearly up again
A, B, C and D and now an E
Jennie's lost her wallet
Fidge has lost his head again
But that's ok that's how it's meant to be

Here's to the Laytown boys
Here's to the Laytown girls
Here's to all the things I didn't know
When I sat at your table, all the rest could go to hell
May your river always
May your river always flow
May your river always
May your river always flow

Conall knows the chords, we’ll meet again
I don’t know where, I don’t know when

Here's to the Laytown boys
Here's to the Laytown girls
