"Ferry 'cross The Mersey" as written by and G. Marsden....
Life goes on day after day
Hearts torn in every way

So ferry 'cross the Mersey
'Cause this land's the place I love
And here I'll stay

People they rush everywhere
Each with their own secret care

So ferry 'cross the Mersey
And always take me there
The place I love

People around every corner
They seem to smile and say
We don't care what your name is boy
We'll never turn you away

So I'll continue to say
Here I always will stay

So ferry 'cross the Mersey
Cause this land's the place I love

And here I'll stay

And here I'll stay

Here I'll stay

    General CommentI suppose it's about Liverpool?

    Whenever I cross over on the ferry they always play this song and it irritates me after a while lol. I like

    "People around every corner
    They seem to smile and say
    We don't care what your name is boy
    We'll never turn you away"

    the Scousers really are great, a good laugh and just generally a nice lot I think. There's bad apples everywhere but I do love Liverpool and I think that verse nicely describes the majority of true scousers!

    General CommentI am just grateful I don't work on that effing ferry!

    I work about 50 yards from the Liverpool ferry terminal at the Pier Head, and I hear the blessed song through the open office windows. I'm just glad that people still commute to work on it - even if the train under the river is much quicker

    General CommentI think this song is about getting off the ferry on the wirral!

    never met a Scouser that would say that!
