Boys On The Docks Lyrics

Boys on the docks

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 and made it our home

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

Say Johnny, the boy, this one's for you
The strength of many but the courage of the 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 and 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 forgotten, your memory's 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, "Man 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
