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 child's mind,
Don't you take his booze away! (hey!)

He's been at it for years drinking 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 dying
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 million strong
Might keep this fool 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... vary from CD

This one goes out to everyone at six fifty six Adams you doing? fellas

Verse 2
