Paddy Lyrics:

Original songwriter: Gerry Carney From his window he watches as people they come and go on their way

Rushin' to catch the train homewards as he often did in his day

He remembers the dark of the mornings the days he worked in the rain

The good times the bad times and the friends that he knew he'll never see them again

At night when the streets are deserted except for the take away signs

He thinks of the men that he worked with

On the buildings the roads and the mines

The girl that he met in the Galtee

He thought he might make her his own

Maybe if there was less drinkin'

He wouldn't have wound up alone

P is for powerful when put to the test

A is for always doin' your best

D is for doin' if it can be done and

D is for drinkin' when workin' was done

Y is for yearnin' to see home again

Proud to be Irish and hard workin' men

Paddy remember though your day is done

You're the rock that England stands on

He can never explained just what happened

The years seemed to pass like a day

Was it the rain or the shovel? took the strength from his limbs away

Sometimes he thinks of the boreen

That led from his house to the lane

And the fields that he worked with his father he'll never see them again

P is for powerful when put to the test

A is for always doin' your best

D is for doin' if it can be done and

D is for drinkin' when workin' was done

Y is for yearnin' to see home again

Proud to be Irish and hard workin' men

Paddy remember though your day is done

You're the rock that England stands on

As he makes his way back to the shelter rain starts to fall on the ground

A young man just in from Cork city

Asks him where work could be found

He said son take a long look at Paddy

And remember what ever you do

This broken old man that you're seein'

Was once a young fellow like you

P is for powerful when put to the test

A is for always doin' your best

D is for doin' if it can be done and

D is for drinkin' when workin' was done

Y is for yearnin' to see home again

Proud to be Irish and hard workin' men

Paddy remember though your day is done

You're the rock that England stands on
