Steel River - Chris Rea

    I was born and raised on steel river
    I see it all like it was yesterday
    The ships and bridges they were all delivered
    From Sydney harbour to the Cisco Bay
    I met my love down on steel river
    We served our dreams and spent our childhood days
    In rainy streets we'd kiss away the shivers
    And hide from fear inside the latest craze
    Dancing to Motown
    Making love with a Carole King record playing
    Oh how I loved you
    Say goodbye ... say goodbye

    Ten thousand bombers hit the steel river
    And many died to keep her running free
    And she survived but now she's gone forever
    Her burning heart is just a memory
    And I ran away from life on steel river
    Luck or not I gladly took the break
    The odds were low the chances nearly zero
    A chance it was I had to take
    And I still love you ...
    Say goodbye ... say goodbye ... oohoo

    They say that salmon swim in steel river
    They say it's good to see them back again
    I know it hurts to see what really happened
    I know one salmon ain't no good to them
    They were born and raised to serve their steel mother
    It was all they taught and all they ever knew
    And they believed that she would keep their children
    Even though not a single word was true

    Say goodbye ... say goodbye ... yeah, yeah
