​Blood And Whiskey

This song is by Dropkick Murphys and appears on the album The Gang's All Here (1999).

Urban legend and American folklore
Tells of a man who was one of a kind
A sure gent with a flair for fashion
Prone to violence at any time

A legendary hooligan
With a thirst for blood and a taste for booze
This brave and daring brutal soul
He lived and fought by his own rules

Shake
The hand that shook the world

Shoe-shine boy to champion
He'd fought and beaten many foes
His calling card was a kick to the groin
And a broken bottle to the bridge of the nose

He aimed to kill when he took to the ring
This Boston strong boy loved to fight
On more than one occasion
A bout was stopped to save an opponent's life

Shake
The hand that shook the world
For blood
And whiskey with his bare knuckled fist
With his fist
Shook the world
With his fist
He shook the world

Shake
The hand that shook the world
For blood
And whiskey with his bare knuckled fist

Shake
The hand that shook the world
For blood
And whiskey with his bare knuckled fist
