Crash Test Dummies - The Rocky Road To Dublin Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • In the merry month of june from me home I started
  • Left the girls of tuam a-really broken-hearted
  • Saluted father dear, kissed me darlin mother
  • Drank a pint of beer, me grief and fears to smother
  • Then off to reave the corn, leave where I was born
  • With a stout blackthorn to banish ghosts and goblins,
  • A brannew pair of brogues, rattling oer the bogs
  • And frightening all the dogs on the rocky road to dublin
  • One two three four five, hunt the hare and turn him
  • Down the rocky road, and all the way to dublin
  • Whack fol-lol-de-ra
  • In mullingar that night I rested limbs so weary
  • Started by daylight next morning light and airy
  • Took a drop of the pure to keep me heart from sinking
  • Thats the paddys cure, wheneer hes on for drinking
  • See the lasses smile, laughing all the while
  • At me curious style, twould set your heart a-bubbling
  • Theyd ask me was I hired, the wages I required
  • Till I was nearly tired of the rocky road to dublin
  • One two three four five, hunt the hare and turn him
  • Down the rocky road, and all the way to dublin
  • Whack fol-lol-de-ra
  • In dublin next arrived, I thought it such a pity
  • To be so soon deprived a view of that fine city
  • So then I took a stroll all among the quality
  • Me bundle it was stole in a neat locality
  • Something crossed me mind, when I looked behind
  • No bundle could I find upon me stick a-wobblin
  • Enquiring for the rogue, they said me connaught brogue
  • Wasnt much in vogue on the rocky road to dublin
  • One two three four five, hunt the hare and turn him
  • Down the rocky road, and all the way to dublin
  • Whack fol-lol-de-ra
  • From there I got away me spirits never failing
  • Landed on the quay just as the ship was sailing
  • The captain at me roared, said that no room had he
  • When I jumped aboard, a cabin found for paddy
  • Down among the pigs, I played some bonny rigs
  • Danced some hearty jigs, the water round me bubblin
  • When off tholyhead I wished meself was dead,
  • Or better far, instead, on the rocky road to dublin
  • One two three four five, hunt the hare and turn him
  • Down the rocky road, and all the way to dublin
  • Whack fol-lol-de-ra
  • The boys of liverpool, when we safely landed
  • Called meself a fool, I could no longer stand it
  • Me blood began to boil, temper I was losin
  • Poor old erins isle they began abusin
  • Hurrah me soul! sez i, shillelagh I let fly
  • Galway boys were nigh and saw I was a hobblin
  • With a loud hurrah, joinin in the fray
  • We quickly cleared the way for the rocky road to dublin
  • One two three four five, hunt the hare and turn him
  • Down the rocky road, and all the way to dublin
  • Whack fol-lol-de-ra
