I worked on the quayside,
On the Blackwater Mile.
I walked away from city life,
It really wasn't my style.
I longed for the cool fresh air,
The mist and the rain.
Leaving everything I knew behind,
I got off that gravy train.

I kept hearing a whisper,
A fabled tale,
The old boys full of sea mist and brine,
Spoke of ghosts from the gale.
Whenever the mists came down,
There were cries in the air,
Shadows moving out of the fog,
You know you've got to take care.

One night in December,
I was stumbling home,
The fog it started swirling around,
And then I wasn't alone:
The ferryman stood beside me,
Seaweed in his bones,
He lifted up a skeletal hand,
And then he started to moan.

The ghost ship was mooring,
The air was so cold,
Ancient bells rang into the night,
Like the old ones foretold.
The dead began to disembark,
And at that moment I knew,
The Blackwater Mile had got its name,
From this ship and its dead crew.
