Swinging in the breeze dripping something on the street
I can see him from my window
They can see him from the water
Just a victim of the press gang
I knew him when he was breathing
He was a good man, he was a young man
He was like you, he was like me
It could have been me, it could have been me
Twisting in the breeze {cut him down, cut him down}
Left for the children on the streets{cut him down, cut him down}
He should have kept his mouth shut.
He never should have left that ship
Don't go drinking down by the docks
You don't know if you'll wake up
I knew him when he was breathing
