Skinhead on the Mbta

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

Now let me tell you a story of a big ole' skinhead
On a tragic and fateful day
He put 10 cents in his pocket
Kissed his wife and family
And went to ride on the m.b.t.a

Did he ever return
No he never returned
And his fate is still unknown
He may ride forever 'neath the streets of boston
He's a skinhead who never returned

Skinhead goes down to the kendall sq. station
And he changes for jamaica plain
The conductor says skinhead I need a nickel
Skinhead (punches him in the brain)

Now all night long skinhead drives through the station
Thinking what can I go and see
Can't afford to buy crack in chelsea
Or a bundle in roxbury

Skinhead's wife goes to the scollay square station
Everyday about a quarter past two
And through the open window she throws skinhead a grenade
As the train comes a rumbling through

Now you citizens of boston
Don't you think it's a scandal
How the skinhead stole the train
So what about that fucking skin
You fucking bum
Let me drive that fucking train
