Body Of An American Lyrics

The cadillac stood by the house

And the yanks they were within

And the tinker boys they hissed advice

'Hot-wire her with a pin'

Then we turned and shook as we had a look

In the room where the dead man lay

So big Jim Dwyer made his last trip

To the {shores} where his father's laid

Fifteen minutes later

We had our first taste of whiskey

There was uncles giving lectures

On ancient Irish history

The men all started telling jokes

And the women they got frisky

BY five o'clock in the evening - correction this line

starts with BY not AT

Every bastard there was {pisky}

Fare thee well going away

There's nothing left to say

Farewell to New York City boys

To Boston and PA

He took them out

With a well-aimed clout

He was often heard to say

I'm a free born man of the USA

He fought the champ in Pittsburgh

And he slashed him to the ground

He took on Tiny Tartanella

And it only went one round

He never had no time for reds

For drink or dice or whores

{But} he never threw a fight

When the fight was right

So they sent him to the war

Fare the well gone away

There's nothing left to say

With a sl?nte Joe and Erin go

My love's in Amerikay

They're calling out the rosary

Spanish wine from far away

I'm a free born man of the USA

This morning on the harbour

When I said goodbye to you

I remember how I swore

That I'd come back to you one day

And as the sunset came to meet

The evening on the hill

I told you I'd always love you

I always did {,} I always will

Fare thee well gone away

There's nothing left to say

'cept to say adieu

To your eyes as blue

As the water in the bay

And to big Jim Dwyer

The man of wire

Who was often heard to say

I'm a free born man of the USA
