The Dubliners – Rocky Road To Dublin Lyrics

[Verse 1: Dubliners]
While In the merry month of may from me home I started
Left the girls of Tuam nearly broken hearted
Saluted father dear, kissed my darling mother
Drank a pint of beer, my grief and tears to smother
Then off to reap the corn, leave where I was born
Cut a stout black thorn to banish ghosts and goblins;
Bought a pair of brogues for rattling o’er the bogs
And fright’ning all the dogs on the rocky road to Dublin

[Chorus: Dubliners]
One, two, three four, five
Hunt the Hare and turn her down the rocky road
All the way to Dublin, Whack follol de rah!

[Verse 2: Dubliners]
In Mullingar that night I rested limbs so weary
Started by daylight next morning blithe and early
Took a drop of the pure to keep me heart from sinking;
Thats a Paddy’s cure whenever he’s on drinking
They hear the lassies smile, laughing all the while
At me curious style, ‘twould set your heart a bubblin’
Asked me was I hired, wages I required
’till I was almost tired of the rocky road to Dublin

[Chorus: Dubliners]
One, two, three four, five
Hunt the Hare and turn her down the rocky road
All the way to Dublin, Whack follol de rah!

[Verse 3: Dubliners]
In Dublin next arrived, I thought it’s such a pity
To be soon deprived a view of that fine city
Then I took a stroll, all among the quality;
Me bundle it was stole, all in a neat locality
Something crossed me mind, when I looked behind
No bundle could I find upon me stick a wobblin’
Enquiring for the rogue, said me Connaught brogue
Wasn’t much in vogue on the rocky road to Dublin

[Chorus: Dubliners]
One, two, three four, five
Hunt the Hare and turn her down the rocky road
All the way to Dublin, Whack follol de rah!

[Verse 4: Dubliners]
From there I got away, me spirits never falling
Landed on the quay, just as the ship was sailing
The Captain at me roared, said that no room had he;
When I jumped aboard, a cabin found for Paddy
Down among the pigs, played some hearty rigs
Danced some hearty jigs, the water round me bubbling;
When off Holyhead I wished meself was dead
Or better far instead on the rocky road to Dublin

[Chorus: Dubliners]
One, two, three four, five
Hunt the Hare and turn her down the rocky road
All the way to Dublin, Whack follol de rah!

[Verse 5: Dubliners]
The boys of Liverpool, when we safely landed
Called meself a fool, I could no longer stand it
Blood began to boil, temper I was losing;
Poor old Erin’s Isle they began abusing
“Hurrah me soul” says I, me Shillelagh I’ll apply
Galway boys were nigh and saw I was a hobble in
With a load “hurray !” joined in the affray
We quickly cleared the way for the rocky road to Dublin

[Chorus: Dubliners]
One, two, three four, five
Hunt the Hare and turn her down the rocky road
All the way to Dublin, Whack follol de rah!
