Barroom Hero

This song is by Dropkick Murphys and appears on the album Do Or Die (1998) and on the album The Singles Collection, Volume 1 (2000).

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, drinkin' balls and beers
He's a hero to most he meets (Hey hey hey!)
But inside he cries, black swollen eyes
This man, he sheds no tears
Now his wife and kids sing a different tune
As they worry 'bout their daddy dyin' (Hey hey hey!)
But this arrogant fool breaks every rule
It'll be nothin' but pride that kills him

Can 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 (Hey hey hey!)
Now he fights and loses, got all the bruises
Will someone please step in?
'Cause this Irish fool's got a great big heart
He keeps climbing back into the ring (Hey hey hey!)
In the low down circles where he holds his court
This man, he once was king

Can 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

Can 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

This one still goes out to the Boston Punks and Skins
A rowdy bunch they are...
(varies from CDs)

He's a legend in the bar with every scar
Fights a thousand bigger men (Hey hey hey!)
Now he fights and loses, got all the bruises
Will someone please step in?
'Cause this Irish fool's got a great big heart
He keeps climbing back into the ring (Hey hey hey!)
In the low down circles where he holds his court
This man, he once was king

Can 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

Can 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
