USS Hopewell DD-681 Reunion 2010 BIGGER and BETTER in Nashville, TN

Fiddler's Green...old Irish sea song of where sailors go when they die:

As I walked by the dockside one evening so rare
To view the still waters and take the salt air
I heard an old sailor singing this song,
Oh take me away boys, me time is not long

(chorus): Lock me up in me oilskins and jumper
No more on the docks I'll be seen
Just tell me old shipmates I'm takin a trip mates
I'll see you someday in Fiddler's Green

Oh in Fiddler's Green is a place I've heard tell
Where sailormen go if they don't go to hell
Where the weather is fair and the dolphins do play
And the cold coast of Greenland is far far away

(chorus)

Where the skies are all clear and there's never a gale
And the fish jump on board with a swish of their tails
Where you lie at your leisure - there's no work to do
