lyrics

West Shore Town - Jesse Dunn

The snow it came and buried me,
My heart as cold as ice.
Winter reared it's weary head,
Much to my demise.

My heart's been cold for three long years,
As cold as cold could be.
Waitress bring that whiskey 'round,
I'm headed out to sea.

I'm going away from my West Shore Town,
Descending from up above.
I'm going away from my West Shore Town,
I'm going to find my love.

A finer time has never been had,
As jolly as jolly could be.
One last night out on the town with the boys,
Is the last you'll see of me.

She left a note on my cabin door,
Said I'll return someday.
My days are doomed forever more,
If my love has gone to stay.

I'm going away from my West Shore Town,
Descending from up above.
I'm going away from my West Shore Town,
I'm going to find my love.

Down the hill past Hangtown flat,
Out the road toward the shore of the sun.
By the time I'd reached my yellow-haired girl,
The battle had long since been won.

I'm going away from my West Shore Town,
Descending from up above.
I'm going away from my West Shore Town,
I'm going to find my love.
Yes, I'm going to find my love.
No, I'll never find my love.
