Dropkick Murphys - Barroom Hero Lyrics

Face down in the gutter won't admit defeat
though his clothes are soiled and black,
he's a big strong man with a childs mind,
Don't you take his booze away! (hey!)

He's been at it for years drinkin balls and beers
hes a hero to most he meets
but inside he cries black swollen eyes this man he sheds no tears
Now his wife & kids sing a different tune
as they worry about their daddy dyin
but this arrogant fool breaks every rule
it'll be nothing but pride that kills him

Chorus 2X

Could he listen no he won't
that's all she wrote
he'll be dead before the daylight shines
cause the thoughts and prayers of a millinon strong
might keep this boy from dying

He's a legend in the bar with every scar
fights a thousand bigger men,
now he fights and looses got all the bruises
will someone please step in?
This Irish fools got a great big heart
he keeps climbing back into the ring
In the low down circles where he holds his court
this man he once was king


this one goes out to the boston punks and skins... varie from CD

This one goes out to everyone at six fifty six adams street...how you doin? fellas

Verse 2
