The Night Ferry

Twylight: The Night Ferry
(Komposition: Wizz Jones, Text: Eddy & Finbar Furey, Arrangement: Jørgen Lang)

I came home across the sea
To my homeland once again
It was nice to see the land
Where I was born in
And the air it felt so fresh
And the wind held back my tears
As I slowly walked down the gangway

Refrain:

Oh, the night ferry has taken me home again,
Yes, the night ferry has taken me home again

As I walked through the city again,
Trying to remember everything
There were people, they were laughing,
With their friends
And the lights they were shining
They were shining down on me
They were making my heart feel free
Back home again

As I walked through the park
Where my father once held me
Where I learned to love and hate
With all my friends
Where I kissed my first girl
And my friends they laughed at me
And the gate, where me met constantly

Refrain

I left home when I was sixteen
And my people they didn’t agree
But that didn‘ bother me

And I sailed across the sea
To seek a new country
To seek opportunity
To better myself

Von allen Stücken auf dieser CD begleitet mich dieses Stück am längsten. Ich hörte es zum ersten Mal in den 1970er Jahren auf einer Schallplatte von Eddy und Finbar Furey. Erst viel später entschloss ich mich, eine eigene Version davon zu entwickeln.

Hier gibt spiele ich „Night Ferry“ zusammen mit den Kollegen von DÁN in einer bisher unveröffentlichten Aufnahme aus dem „Lutterbeker“ bei Kiel.

Besetzung:

  • Jørgen Lang: Gesang, Gitarre
  • Johannes Mayr: Akkordeon, Satzgesang
  • Franziska Urton: Geige, Satzgesang
