lyrics

Through the port of Boston Harbour, streaming off the boats
Hungry, persecuted, a million angry rogues
Faction fights, the street gangs, the start of something new
Falling from the bars sticks and fist fights they ensued

From guns sent home in coffins, the rosary, the church
To torture in the cellars and buried in the lurch
McLeans and the McLoughlins, Whitey, JFK
The shanty Irish will never leave, the code of silence stays

We gave to you our sons for the stars and stripes they stand
We fought in North Korea and died in Vietnam
Shot down on the beaches and butchered in the fields
And carried home to Boston and our homes in Somerville

You opened your arms to me
We're home from the sea
Boston we love you still
Now forever the Lords of Winter Hill

(instrumental)

You opened your arms to me
We're home from the sea
Boston we love you still
Now forever the Lords of Winter Hill

The Gustin Gang, the Mullens, Provos and Kileens
The blood ran down the Mystic and far across the sea
The celtic cross and tombstones, a monument there still
For Ireland's sons and daughters and the Lords of Winter Hill
The Gustin Gang, the Mullens, Provos and Kileens
The blood ran down the Mystic and far across the sea
The celtic cross and tombstones, a monument there still
For Ireland's sons and daughters and the Lords of Winter Hill
