Roses and Castles Geoff Summerfield Roses and castles on boats often passing When I was a lad on the old long canal We would spend all our summer fishing all day Just watching the working boats coming our way Out with the rods I'd often heard say Have you had much today and we'd answer 'em nay And I've travelled all over and never felt lonesome Life on the water is the life for me And I've travelled all over and never felt lonesome Life on the water is the life for me, it's for me Working all day and most of the night A leather faced man doing all that he can With a mountain of coal, never seems to go down Shovelling out for a quick turnaround He and his family being as one A smile on his face job nearly done And I've travelled all over and never felt lonesome Life on the water is the life for me And I've travelled all over and never felt lonesome Life on the water is the life for me, it's for me That's life on the water for me Grateful thanks to Geoff Summerfield for providing this song and the recording of the song which featured on a CD compiled as part of the Alrewas Canal and Music Festival (2013) to celebrate the first year of the Canal & River Trust.
