LYRICS

Portland Town

I was born in Portland Town, I was born in Portland Town
Yes I was, yes I was, yes I was

I got married in Portland Town, I got married in Portland Town
Yes I did, yes I did, yes I did

Children I had one two three, children I had one two three
Yes I did, yes I did, yes I did

Frank, Jimmy and Johnny made three, Frank, Jimmy and Johnny made three
Yes they did, yes they did, yes they did

Sent my children off to war, sent my children off to war
Yes they did, yes they did, yes they did

Killed my children one two three, killed my children one two three
Yes they did, yes they did, yes they did

Murdered my children one two three, murdered my children one two three
Yes they did, yes they did, yes they did

I won’t have no kids no more, I won’t have no kids no more
No I won’t, no I won’t, no I won’t
