“I Cover The Waterfront”

Here’s an older recording of me playing one of my favorite songs, “I Cover The Waterfront” by Johnny Green/Edward Heyman

(lyrics after the jump)

Away from the city that hurts and knocks,
I’m standing alone by the desolate docks
In the still and the chill of the night
I see the horizon the great unknown
My heart has an ache
It’s as heavy as stone
With the dawn coming on, make it last

I cover the waterfront
I’m watching the sea
Will the one I love
Be coming back to me

I cover the waterfront
In search of my love
An I’m covered
By a starlit sky above

Here am I
Patiently waiting
Hoping and longing
Oh how I yearn
Where are you
Have you thought back time
Will you remember
Will you return

I cover the waterfront,
I’m watching the sea.
Will the one I love

Be coming back
To me
