Chris De Burgh - Dont Pay The Ferryman Şarkı Sözü

dont pay the ferryman

ıt was late at night on the open road,
speeding like a man on the run,
a lifetime spent preparing for the journey;


he ıs closer now and the search ıs on,
reading from a map ın the mind,
yes theres the ragged hill,
and theres the boat on the river.


and when the rain came down,
he heard a wild dog howl,
there were voices ın the night - "dont do ıt!"
voices out of sight - "dont do ıt!
too many men have failed before,
whatever you do,


dont pay the ferryman,
dont even fix a price,
dont pay the ferryman,
until he gets you to the other side;"


ın the rolling mist, then he gets on board,
now therell be no turning back,
beware that hooded old man at the rudder,
and then the lightning flashed, and the thunder roared,
and people calling out his name,
and dancing bones that jabbered and a-moaned
on the water.


and then the ferryman said,
"there ıs trouble ahead,
so you must pay me now," - "dont do ıt!"
"you must pay me now," - "dont do ıt!"
and still that voice came from beyond,
"whatever you do,


dont pay the ferryman,
dont even fix a price,
dont pay the ferryman,
until he gets you to the other side;


dont pay - the ferryman!"
