Run on the Banks - lyrics

Show song Facebook

When I came home from the Anzio shore,
I got me a job at a Shiretown store.
I married up quick,
We had the one son.
My limit was hit and my race was run.
We raised him right,
We put him through school,
With a gentle embrace and an iron rule.
Our world was shattered when we lost our son,
To the business end of a gangster's gun.
How do you go from the Bernhardt Line
to chasing anonymous ships in the night?
How do you live with a lingering ghost?
Ooh, with a run on the banks,
Ooh, with a run on the banks.
When they buried my boy of 22 years,
I swore I'd do more than choke on my tears.
So I hardened up my heart, took up the oath
And looked for ways to avenge us both
Me and his mother, we never were the same,
she left me one spring and I am to blame.
I forgot about living, forgot about her,
Forgot about love and the way things were.
So how do you go from the Bernhardt Line
to chasing anonymous ships in the night?
How do you live with a lingering ghost?
Ooh, with a run on the banks,
Ooh, with a run on the banks.
Sixteen guns, 25 kilos, a couple thousand rounds
when we run her aground.
The crew bailed out and headed for the hills,
With a barrel of blow and a mountain of pills.
No arrest in her majesty's waters,
no victory for the mothers and fathers
Of the young and the damned,
The guilty walk free to continue their trade on a cruel black sea.
How do you go from the Bernhardt Line
to chasing anonymous ships in the night?
How do you live with a lingering ghost?
Ooh, with a run on the banks,
Ooh, with a run on the banks.
