Anna Livia, Anna Livia Song Lyrics And Chords. Written and recorded by Des Wade.


[D]Once upon a [G]time long gone when [A]it was all be[D]fore us

In those days with [G]voices [D]raised in a [A]joyful, midnight [D]chorus

[G]We were singin’[D] Monto and Will Ye [A]Go, Lassie [Bm]Go

And the [D]world of At-[A]Swim-Two-Birds [G]was home away from [Bm]home,[A],[Bm]


Ah but [G]where is the dance [D]after the dancer and the [G]song when the singer’s a[D]way

I’ll give you a chance to [G]tell me the [D]answer on the [A]Ha’penny [G]bridge to[D]day


Oh but even as you kissed my soul and there was Whiskey in the Jar
You brought me your heart to hold mine sought another star
Like a beggar my love was wearing thin and pulling at my sleeve
And saying at the barroom door saying, “I think it’s time to leave”


And where was the dance after the dancer and the song when the singer took flight
I never went to tell you the answer on the Ha’penny bridge that night


Anna Livia, Anna Livia
See you moving beneath me
Anna Livia, Anna Livia
Your secrets bequeath me
Anna Livia, Anna Livia
My destiny seeks me
So marry me, carry me
Down to the sea


Oh if we could only change the chart of the voyage our life has sailed
Do you believe within your heart there’d be better choices made
Still there was a time and it’s the truth when by power of song and story
The compass rose of our youth was guiding us to glory


Ah but where is the dance after the dancer and the song when the singer’s away
How I’d love the chance to give you the answer on the Ha’penny bridge some day


Anna Livia, Anna Livia How could I betray you
Anna Livia, Anna Livia How could I say you
Anna Livia, Anna Livia
Mean nothing to me
And by forsaking thee
Indifference undo me
