Portland Town 

- Derroll Adams

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

I was married in Portland town, I was married in Portland town
Yes I was, yes I was, yes I was...

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

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

I was born in Portland town, I was born in Portland town
Yes I was, yes I was, yes I was...
