lyrics

THE ANCHOR LINE
(Ian M. Bruce/Ian J. Walker)

Cameronia's moving now.
Take me away to Bombay.
Tugs hauling, stern and bow,
Take me away to Suez.

CHORUS
The anchor line sails today.
'Take me away to Bombay.
"Anchors aweigh!" the Captain says
Take me away to Suez

One more liner gone to sea.
Take me away to Bombay.
Another dream that's lost to me.
Take me away to Suez.

CHORUS

So many parts I long to see.
Take me away to Bombay.
But deepest roots are holding me.
Take me away to Suez.

CHORUS

Left alone on Prince's Quay.
Never beholding Bombay.
Turning back to Polmadie.
Never seeing Suez.
