Lyrics

Ten Years Gone

With the bottles lined up behind the bar,
waiting for the young ones from near and far
We're trying to forget who we are
so we fight our way to Killarney

So come on boys, let's raise a glass
to a headstrong laddie and a lovesick lass
It's ten years gone since I've been to mass
take me far away from Killarney

With the liquor flowing all through the veins,
as the heart takes over and the sanity wanes
we lament our losses and cheer our gains
as the night drags on in Killarney

So come on boys, let's raise a glass
to a headstrong laddie and a lovesick lass
It's ten years gone since I've been to mass
take me far away from Killarney

Then the lights come on, and you hear last call
And you did your best, but you dropped the ball
So you're flying solo, but aren't we all
It's a lonely life in Killarney

So come on boys, let's raise a glass
to a headstrong laddie and a lovesick lass
It's ten years gone since I've been to mass
take me far away from Killarney
 
Come on boys, let's hoist one up
And we'll toss a prayer before we drain the cup
It's ten years gone, so don't press your luck
Take me far away from Killarney
