Dropkick Murphys Boys On The Docks (Murphys' Pub Version) Lyrics

Last updated: 04/10/2008 11:00:00 AM


Say hey Johnny Boy, The battle call
United we stand, Divided we fall
Together we are what we can't be alone
We came to this country you made it our home.

This man so humble, this man so brave
A legend to many, he fought to his grave
Saved family and friends from the hardship and horror
In a land of depression he gave hope for tomorrow.

Say Johnny Me Boy, This ones for you
With the strength of many and the courage of few
To what do we owe this man who's fight
Was for the masses, he gave his life.

Say hey Johnny Boy, The battle call
United we stand, Divided we fall
Together we are what we can't be alone
We came to this country you made it our home.

A friend to the locals who dabbled in crime
He'd give you a job and he'd give you his time
He wasn't a crook but he couldn't be conned
John knew the difference between right and wrong

Say Johnny Me Boy, You live no longer
Others forgotton, your memories stronger
Lets drink to the causes in your life.
Your family, your friends, the union, your wife.

Say hey Johnny Boy, The battle call
United we stand, Divided we fall
Together we are what we can't be alone
We came to this country you made it our home.

Say hey Johnny Boy, The battle call
United we stand, Divided we fall
Together we are what we can't be alone
We came to this country you made it our home.

And the boys on the docks needed John for sure
When they came to this country he opened the door
He said men I'll tell ya, They don't like our kind
Though it starts with a fist, it must end with your mind.

Say hey Johnny Boy, The battle call
United we stand, Divided we fall
Together we are what we can't be alone
We came to this country you made it our home.
