Dropkick Murphys – Boys On The Docks

C  (x32010)
G  (320033)
D  (xx0232)


C          G
Say hey Johnny boy, the battle call
C       G
Divided we stand, united we fall
C         G
Together we are what we can't be alone
C            D
We came to this country you made it our home

Verse 1:

C       G
This man so humble, this man so brave
C         G
A legend to many, he fought to his grave
C                  G
Saved family and friends from the hardship and horror
C                D
In a land of depression he gave hope for tomorrow
C           G
Say hey Johnny, this one's for you
C                  G
With the strength of many and the courage of a few
C        G
To what do we owe this man who's fight
C         D
Was for the masses he gave his life

Chorus:  Play like other chorus

Say hey Johnny, the battle call
United we stand, divided we fall
Together we are what we can't be alone
We came to this country, you made it our home

Verse 2:  Play like other verse

A friend to the locals who dabbled in crime
Be'd give you a job and he'd give you his time
Be wasn't a crook but he couldn't be conned
John knew the difference between right and wrong
Say Johnny me boy, you live no longer
Other's forgotten, your memories stronger
Let's drink to the causes in your life
Your family, your friends, the union, your wife

Chorus:  It's played x2, the first time with no guitar, the second time with

Verse 3:  Just like the others

And the boys on the docks needed John for sure
When they came to this country he opened the door
Be said men I'll tell ya, they don't like our kind
Though it starts with a fist it must end with your mind

Play the chorus one more time

Ending:  C  C  G  C
