Dropkick Murphys – Blood And Whiskey lyrics

- Lyrics / Music: Dropkick Murphys (Casey, Barton, Kelly) -

Urban legend and American folklore, Tells of a man who was one of a kind
A sure gent with a flair for fashion, prone to violence at any time
A legendary hooligan with a thirst for blood and a taste for booze
This brave and daring brutal soul, he lived and fought by his own rules

Shake the hand that shook the world

Shoe-shine boy to champion, he'd fought and beaten many foes
His calling card was a kick to the groin, and a broken bottle to the bridge of the nose
He aimed to kill when he took to the ring, this Boston strong boy loved to fight
On more than one occasion, a bout was stopped to save an opponents life

Shake the hand that shook the world
For Blood and Whiskey with a bare knuckled fist
