Up in the mornin' the sun do shine,
Watchin' the old men and their nets with twine;
Out in the harbour the winds do roar,
Watchin' the seas crash against the shore.

Sun gets higher with the rising tide,
Sendin' the waves on a rolling sky;
Come from far away to the shore,
When they reach they can never go back no more.

Days of dreamin' 'bout the ups and downs,
I still miss my old home town;
Carry me back there in my dreams,
You can go away but you can never leave,
Go away but you can never leave.

Sunday morning I sit on my perch,
Mother she drag me off to church,
To tell me that's the only way,
To wash the sins of the week away.

Time has passed since I've been home,
Seems that I've been gone too long;
Days go by without a care,
My mind still takes me way back there.

Days of dreamin' 'bout the ups and downs,
I still miss my old home town;
Carry me back there in my dreams,
You can go away but you can never leave,
Go away but you can never leave.

Now I'm getting older and I'm settling down,
Where I grew up in my home town;
My ramblin' days they are o'er and gone,
They stayed awhile and then they passed on.

The fever that took me away,
Is takin' me back to where I'll stay;
Miss the sea and the way she heaves,
Comin' home and no more I'll leave.

Days of dreamin' 'bout the ups and downs,
I still miss my old home town;
Carry me back there in my dreams,
You can go away but you can never leave,
Go away but you can never leave.

Days of dreamin' 'bout the ups and downs,
I still miss my old home town;
Carry me back there in my dreams,
You can go away but you can never leave,
Go away but you can never leave.

[D] Day's of dreamin' 'bout the [Dsus4] ups and [D] downs,
[A] I still miss my [E] old home [A] town;

You can [A] go away but you can [E] never [A] leave,
Go away but you can [E] never [A] leave. (Verse chords)

Sunday morning I sit [D] on my [A] perch,

Go away but you can [E] never [A] leave.
