Dropkick Murphys lyrics : "The Hardest Mile"

I'm heading for a life in the land of the free
Sending every penny home to the family
Off to find fortunes that can't be bought

Now Paddy's struck down from a single shot

Paddy's struck down from a single shot!


They lured the men away they promised wealth and riches
A thousand miles from home lying steel and digging ditches

The work would be a challenge nary a soul could stand the trial
These wayfaring boys built the railways toughest mile


Fifty-seven men on the hardest mile!

Fifty-seven men on the hardest mile

Murdered for their troubles, left to die
Immigrant sons from Donegal, Tyrone & Derry
Their numbers were few but they did the job of many

Eight weeks went by and the path was clear
Fifty-seven men had all disappeared
Not a mention of their name no stone was ever turned

It would be so many years before the truth was ever learned

Fifty-seven men on the hardest mile

Murdered for their troubles, left to die
Immigrant sons from Donegal, Tyrone & Derry
Their numbers were few but they did the job of many


Now ghosts dance a jig on an unmarked grave
A slug full of lead was the price they were paid

Vigilante justice, prejudice and pride
No one in this valley will be seen again alive


Fifty-seven men on the hardest mile
Murdered for their troubles, left to die
Immigrant sons from Donegal, Tyrone & Derry

Their numbers were few but they did the job of many
Fifty-seven men on the hardest mile
Murdered for their troubles, left to die

Immigrant sons from Donegal, Tyrone & Derry
Their numbers were few but they did the job of many
