lyrics

Wrap up my hands, son. Wrap 'em real tight.
'Cause £10,000 says that Paddy's going down
in one hell of a fight.

When he sent us that tape and he cursed our name,
well, I've been training ever since--
for the courtroom of this country road,
fist-to-fist.

Give 'em one for your uncle
and one for your family name,
we'll keep it alive.
And we'll be
the king of the Traveler's tonight.

Driving home from Tuam with the wind
and our history stinging our wounds.
This has got to be the last time. I hope to God
that this will finally settle the feud.

So don't go looking for a fight. Keep our family proud.
And, son, promise me this:
as you're growing up you won't give up on love.
Don't let the battle be your only bliss.

Give 'em one for your uncle
and one for your family name,
we'll keep it alive.
And we'll be
the king of the Traveler's tonight.

Hold your head high, you fought clean.
You gave it your best try,
and sometimes that's all you need.

Hold your head high, you fought clean.
You gave it your best try,
and sometimes

You give 'em one for your uncle
and one for your family name,
we'll keep it alive.
And we'll be
the king of the Traveler's tonight.
