Darling Lizzie by Sue Lee and John Meleady It was back in the thirties, My first solo load, When first I saw Lizzie, Up the Gas Ferry Road I thought her so handsome And I thought her so fine It was then I decided To make that girl mine! It was seven weeks later When I saw her again As I tied up one evening In the cold wind and rain She was carrying water In two Buckby cans As she trudged up the towpath I offered my hands As she lifted her face and Her eyes they met mine, I knew I would love her 'Til the end of all time, But she thanked me so kindly As she passed on her way And pledged in that moment I'd wed her one day Well I saw her at Easter And again on May Day As our boats passed each other In the opposite way Lizzie smiled when she saw me And my hopes they did fly Only to flounder As our boats passed on by But it wasn't until Christmas That we met up again And it seemed like a lifetime As I whispered her name A decision I made then And the courage I found To tell her that I loved her And to ask for her hand So I walked straight up to her Praying she'd be kind And I poured out my heart to her And I told her my mind Then all in that moment She changed my whole life Lizzie held out her hands to me Saying she would be my wife!
