Dropkick Murphys Wheel Of Misfortune Lyrics

Cowboys and coppers verse injuns and robbers,

take a guess for which side I was prone

Maniacal pleasures and a taste for misfortune,

the legacy for which I was known

[Chorus:]

Down and out, I scream and I shout.

For this man from whom I need my advice

If the price is your life son, you’d better think twice as you march to the front like a soldier

So you’d think I’d aspire for greatness, hell-Bent to make a name on my own

Genetically programmed for the Wheel of Misfortune, I’m an heir to an unwanted throne

[Chorus]

Now they’ve all got their theories,

opinions and such about this man who is down on his luck

Well the offers are plenty,

my options are many, still I opt to face my problems alone.
