Far Away Boys Lyrics

Artist: Flogging Molly
Album: Swagger

Well I worked on the railroad
For t€™pence a day
Drank down one penny
The other I€™d save
I hammered and I hammered
For God knows how long
Well into madness, with each setting sun
I put my head down and I dreamt you were here
With me by the ol€™ tree, where no one could care

Far Away Boys, Far Away Boys
Away from ya now
I€™m lyin€™ with my sweetheart
In her arms I€™ll be found

Then the sun belched upon me
You were no longer here
Lyin€™ in your place was my hammer and my gear
So I stamped out the fire that kept us both warm
The ashes were fallin€™
Like the snow drops of old
We came to a mountain
Dynamite and she€™ll blow
A big hole in that rock
Like the one in my soul

Far Away Boys, Far Away Boys
Away from ya now
I€™m lyin€™ with my sweetheart
In her arms I€™ll be found

We buried four workmen
They dug themselves well
>From four empty coffins, to four early graves
They€™re only paddys, just paddys
Don€™t dig them too deep
You€™ll need all your strength boys
And they€™re replaced easily
With the heat I was melting
Into your sweet lips
Ah, your kiss takes me back
Takes me back from all this

Far Away Boys, Far Away Boys
Away from ya now
I€™m lyin€™ with my sweetheart
In her arms I€™ll be found

Someone said it was Christmas
But not a tree was in sight
The only thing growin€™ was my will to die
Till the gaffer said €˜men, your work here is done€™
I said €˜I€™ll see you in Hell, on that train we died for€™
Never again, will I smell your sweet dream
But a pissed stained ol€™ gutter where€
You lips used to be

Far Away Boys, Far Away Boys
Away from ya now
I€™m lyin€™ with my sweetheart
In her arms I€™ll be found

This is such a beautiful song. I just wish someone would do it justice and fix the lyrics...I'd do it myself but I don't know how. Anybody out there know?
