Well the docks lie crippled
In the northem towns
The boys have all gone away
Trying to find work down south

And mister I walk in the valley of the shadow
Won't someone have mercy on my soul
On my soul, soul, soul

HALLOWED GROUND how sad is the sound
In a valley that once sang out sang proud
HALLOWED GROUND where the ships run aground
To die in the harbour in a rust ridden town, town, town, town

Now I've seen the future
And I've seen the past
And I've seen the lights go down
On this world fading fast

And mister I walk in the valley of the shadow
Won't someone have mercy on my soul
On my soul, soul, soul

HALLOWED GROUND how sad is the sound
In a valley that once sang out sang proud
HALLOWED GROUND where the ships run aground
To die in the harbour in a rust ridden town, town, town, town

And mister I walk in the valley of the shadow
Won't someone have mercy on my soul
On my soul, soul, soul

HALLOWED GROUND how sad is the sound
In a valley that once sang out sang proud
HALLOWED GROUND where the ships run aground
To die in the harbour in a rust ridden town, town, town, town

Now I've got a wife and a young child
Back home in my house
Oh I've got someone
I've got to take care of somehow
