Dropkick Murphys Heroes From Our Past Lyrics

And so the story’s told of a hearty group of men it’s a tale of their triumphs and their woes.

Be it raids and melees ancient or the modern worker’s struggle

that inspires men to stand up for their rights.

And should we fall down by the wayside in this ever-changing world

we can look back to these heroes of our past.

With their staunch determination and ferocious iron will,

no tyranny would quell them in their task.

It’s an age-old situation with an ever-present message:

that time and tide waiteth for no man.

So without fear of confrontation of the consequence of outcome,

it’s for freedom and for happiness they toiled.

An in looking to the future,

we can see a better place where we can shake the yoke of tyranny for all.

It’s been paved by generations who have gone now to their rest.

It’s just remembrance of their dignity we ask.

[Chorus:]

So come on rally round this brave and valiant cause with tradition, pride, and honor at its core.

With swords drawn to defend stood these noble-hearted men fág an bealach,

clear the way, me boys!!

Under perilous conditions with small hope of success they left behind the lives that they once led

and by virtue of their fortitude and single-minded strength

they cleared the way for the people of today

so when we think back to our ancestors respectfully we hark

and thank the men whose struggle broke the chain it’s a long road up ahead of us

let’s forge on while we’re strong and leave our mark of honor once again

So the story has been told and it comes now to an end.

It’s setting any era, any land.

When abusive tyrants force the hands of matters great or small,

it inpires men to stand up for their rights.
