JUNE MORNING - MERSEYSIDE Another bright June morning Warm as the day before But a cold cold wind is blowing in Towards the Mersey shore And the Mersey keeps on flowing And the Liver Birds still stand But the wind that blows On the Iron Men's shore Brings grief from far Helmand Now a dark cloud on the Mersey Spreading far and wide From Runcorn to the Wirral Cloaking Merseyside Their families hear the footsteps Hear the knocking on the door Now without a warning Their lives change evermore And the Mersey keeps on flowing And the Liver Birds still stand But the wind that blows On the Iron Men's shore Brings grief from far Helmand.
