Album Lyrics

2: Dawning Of The Day 

Out on raglan road on an autumn day, 
I saw her first and knew 
That her dark hair would weave a snare 
That I might one day rue. 
I saw the danger, yet I walked 
Along the enchanted way 
And I said let grief be a falling leaf 
At the dawning of the day. 

On Grafton street in November, 
We tripped lightly along the ledge 
Of a deep ravine where can be seen 
The worth of passions pledged. 
But The queen of hearts is still baking tarts 
And I 'm not making hay, 
and a love too much; not such by such 
Is happiness thrown away. 

I gave her the gifts of the mind. 
I gave her the secret sign 
That’s known to all the artists 
of sound and stone and time. 
With word and tint I never did stint. 
I gave her reams of poems to say 
of thy own dark hair with her own name there 
Like the clouds over fields of may. 

On a quiet street where old ghosts meet, 
I see her walking there 
away from me, So hurriedly. 
my reason must allow, 
that I have wooed, not as I should 
A creature made of clay. 
When the angel woos the clay, he’ll lose 
His wings at the dawn of the day.

9: Red Rocking Chair 

Pull back the curtain let me see the sun 
it's been like a long rainy day 
oh I slave and I try but you grumble and you cry 
and we can't live together this way 
no we can't live together this way 

No I ain't got no use 
no I ain't got no use for that red rocking chair 
got no sugar honey baby now 
got no sugar honey baby now 

Well I set you in the shade gave you every dime I made 
what else can a poor boy do 
Yes I work every day and you threw it all away 
I just can't make a living for you 
I just can't make a living for you 

Some rounder come along 
some rounder come along with that mouth full of gold 
rounder stole my green-back roll 
and I got no sugar honey baby now 

I got no use for that red rocking chair 
got no sugar honey baby now 
oh and since she's been gone I just sing this lonesome song 
got no one to rock that cradle for me now 
got no one to rock that cradle for me now 

Who'll call me honey 
who'll call me honey who will sing that song 
who'll rock the cradle when you're gone 
who'll rock the cradle when you're gone 

I'll rock that cradle 
I'll rock that cradle I'll sing that song 
I'll rock that cradle when your gone 
I'll rock that cradle when your gone

4: What Will We Do?

What will we do if we have no money? 
Oh true lovers what will we do then? 
Only hawk through the town, for a hungry crown 
and we'll yodel it over again 

What will be do if we marry a tinker? 
Oh true lovers what will we do then? 
Only sell a tin can and walk on with my man 
and we'll yodel it over again 

What will we do if we marry a soldier? 
Oh true lovers what will we do then? 
Only handle his gun and we'll fight for the fun 
and we'll yodel it over again 

What will we do if we have a young daughter? 
Oh true lovers what will we do then? 
Only take her in hand and walk on with my man 
and we'll yodel it over again

8: Opossum Awareness 

Don't you run old 'possum down 
he's just hangin' out 

That old 'possum won't starve 
he'll eat all the ticks in the yard 

Don't you bury that 'possum yet 
he's just playing dead

11: Fields of Athenry

By a lonely prison wall 
I heard a young girl calling 
Michael they are taking you away 
For you stole Trevelyn’s corn 
So the young might see the morn 
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay 

Low lie the Fields of Athenry 
Where once we watched the small free birds fly 
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing 
It’s so lonely ’round the Fields of Athenry 

By a lonely prison wall 
I heard a young man calling 
Nothing matters Mary when you're free 
Against the Famine and the Crown 
I rebelled they cut me down 
Now you must raise our child with dignity 

Low lie the Fields of Athenry 
Where once we watched the small free birds fly 
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing 
It’s so lonely ’round the Fields of Athenry 

By a lonely harbor wall 
She watched the last star falling 
As the prison ship sailed out against the sky 
For she’ll live and hope and pray 
For her love in Botany Bay 
It’s so lonely ’round the Fields of Athenry 

Low lie the Fields of Athenry 
Where once we watched the small free birds fly 
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing 
It’s so lonely ’round the Fields of Athenry
