Barges

Traditional

Out of my window, looking in the night
I can see the barges flickering light
Silently flows the river to the sea
And the barges too go silently.

{Chorus}: Barges, I would like to go with you
I would like to sail the ocean blue
Barges, are there treasures in your hold
Do you fight with pirates brace and bold.

Out of my window looking in the night
I can see the barges flickering light
Starboard shines green and the port is glowing red
I can see them flickering far ahead. {Chorus}

Out of my window looking at the night
I can see the barges flickering light
People are going far, far away
And I’d like to go with them some day. {Chorus}

How my heart longs to sail away with you
As you sail across the ocean blue
But I must sit beside my window dear
And watch you sail away from here. {Chorus}
