Boys On The Docks (Murphys' Pub Version) Lyrics

(Dedicated to the memory of John Kelly)

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 one's for you with
the strength of many and the courage of a few
to what do we owe this man who's fight was for the masses
he have his life


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 te difference between right and wrong
Say Johnny me boy you live no longer others forgotten
your memories stronger lets drink to the causes in your life
your family, your friends, the union, your wife

[Chorus x2]

And the boys on the docks needed John for sure
when they came to this country he opened the door
he said 'Man I'll tell ya, they don't like our kind
though it starts with your fist it must end with your mind!'

[Chorus x2]
