OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Life...goes on day after day
Men star right, turn it one time I say
Allemande left and weave the ring
So ferry cross the Mersey, cause this land's the place I love
And here I'll stay...and here I'll stay


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru (people around every corner)
Dosado (they seem to smile and say), touch 1/4
Split circulate, boys run right now
Reverse flutter wheel go full around that way
Dixie style now, boys you cross fold
Swing that corner girl and all will promenade
This land I love...and here I'll stay

Ferry Cross The Mersey

Life goes on day after day
Hearts torn in every way

So ferry 'cross the Mersey
'Cause this land's the place I love
And here I'll stay

People they rush everywhere
Each with their own secret care

So ferry 'cross the Mersey
And always take me there
The place I love

People around every corner
They seem to smile and say
We don't care what your name is, boy
We'll never turn you away

So I'll continue to say
Here I always will stay

So ferry 'cross the Mersey
'Cause this land's the place I love
And here I'll stay
And here I'll stay
Here I'll stay

Lyrics by Gerry Marsden.
Recorded by Gerry and the Pacemakers.
