All of my dreams seem to fall by the side like a discarded thought or the day's fading light but I know that if I could just see you tonight
Your kindness for weakness I never mistook I worried you often, yet you understood that life is so fleeting, these troubles won't last
forever at times we may fall, like we all tend to do but I'll reach out and find that I've run into you your strength is the power that carried me
forever inspired me truly you did from the start to not be afraid and to follow my heart there's a piece of you with me they can't tear apart
Forever your power and strength stays with me Forever I'll find you, forever we'll be
BOSTON COLLEGE FIGHT SONG "For Boston"
(T.J. Hurley, class of 1885)
[also covered by Dropkick Murphys: Sing Loud, Sing Proud, 2001]
For Boston, for Boston,
We sing our proud refrain!
For Boston, for Boston,
'Tis Wisdom's earthly fane.
For here all are one
And their hearts are true,
Heroes From Our Past
And so the story's told of a hearty group of men. It's a tale of their triumphs and their woes. Be it raids and melees ancient or the modern worker's struggle that inspires men to stand up for their rights. And should we fall down by the wayside in this ever-changing world we can look back to these heroes of our past. With their staunch determination and ferocious iron will, no tyranny would quell them in their task.
It's an age-old situation with an ever-present message: that time and tide waiteth for no man. So without fear of confrontation or the consequence of outcome, it's for freedom and for happiness they toiled. And in looking to the future, we can see a better place where we can shake the yoke of tyranny for all. It's been paved by generations who have now gone to their rest. It's just remembrance of their dignity we ask.
So come on rally 'round this brave and valiant cause with tradition, pride, and honor at it's core. With swords drawn to defend stood these noble-hearted men Faugh-an-ballagh, clear the way, me boys!
Under perilous conditions with small hope of success they left behind the lives that they once led and by virtue of their fortitude and single-minded strength they cleared the way for the people of today. So when we think back to our ancestors respectfully we hark and thank the men whose struggle broke the chain. It's a long road up ahead of us - let's forge on while we're strong and leave our mark of honor once again
Rocky Road To Dublin
In the merry month of June from my home I started left the girls
Me darling mother drank a pint of beer, my grief and tears to
Smother then off to reap the corn, leave where I was born cut
A stout blackthorn to banish ghosts and goblin, brand-new
Pair of brogues, rattling o'er the bogs frightening all the dogs
Of Taum nearly brokenhearted saluted me father dear, kissed
In Mullingar last night, I rested limbs so weary started by
On the rocky road to Dublin.
To keep me heart from sinking that's the daddy's cure when
Spicy Mchaggis Jig
I'll tell you a story, believe me, it's true.
A tale you best hope never happens to you.
Old Spicy McHaggis, how he met his fate.
You I can save, but for him it's too late.
Spicy was big, burly and strong. His pipes were gigantic,
