Track Name: Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ya
While I'm on the road to Athenry,
Haroo, Haroo
While I'm on the road to Athenry,
Haroo, Haroo
When I'm on the road to Athenry,
A stick in me hand and a tear in me eye
I can't see why it's such a crime
Johnny, I hardly knew ya!

Chorus:
With their guns and drums, and drums and guns, Haroo, Haroo
With their guns and drums, and drums and guns, Haroo, Haroo
With their guns and drums, and drums and guns, the Devil nearly slew ya
Johnny, I hardly knew ya!

Hungry, starved and nearly dead,
Haroo, Haroo,
Some corn he stole to fill his guts
A family to care, a love to dare,
as a thief he is stared, is that really fair?
Taken away and sent to jail
Johnny, I hardly knew ya

(Chorus)

Avoid the jail and pay the bail
Then join the navy and off you sail
Leave Rosie and roam, your son is home,
no shame in leaving them alone
They say it's better than a prison wall
Johnny, I hardly knew ya

(Chorus)

[Guitar Solo]

(Chorus)

Not far away, a spanish flag
They rise ahead with guns in hand
Their ship was sunk, the spanish won,
Now nothing can be really done,
He's in the brine with a broken spine,
Johnny, I hardly knew ya!

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

Johnny, I hardly knew ya!
Track Name: Rosie
Rosie, oh Rosie
You stole my heart away
Rosie, oh Rosie
Still hurts me every day

Why can't you accept
More than my heart?
Why do you have to
Keep it to yourself?

I offered, I insisted
I begged and I crawled
I guess I'm just not enough
And I hope you'll be happy

If you leave my life now,
I'll understand
But also if you leave me,
Things will never be the same

I offered, I insisted
I begged and I crawled
I guess I'm just not enough
And I hope you'll be happy

[Guitar solo]
[Violin solo]
[Accordion + Tin Whistle duo]

I offered, I insisted
I begged and I crawled
I guess I'm just not enough
And I hope you'll be happy

Rosie, oh Rosie
Cold winter Nights
Rosie, oh Rosie
I can still see your sight
Track Name: Sea Shanty
Ashore me love awaits for me
As pretty as she is
The winds of salvation, a widow we visit
Of a sailor, who died for his nation!

Aye-dee-ay-hey, we roar and we swear, at the horizon we'd stare!
Aye-dee-ay-hey, we roar and we swear, at the horizon we'd stare!

The Shaking Ship, our company's fine,
The great splashing brine
The winds of salvation, the widow we visit
Of a sailor, who died for his nation!

Aye-dee-ay-hey, we roar and we swear, at the horizon we'd stare!
Aye-dee-ay-hey, we roar and we swear, at the horizon we'd stare!

The life on the sea, as hard as can be!
No remorse, no pain, no grief and some bloodstains!
Rum for me suffering, rum for me pain
And a little to write this refrain!

[Violin solo]

Aye-dee-ay-hey, we roar and we swear, at the horizon we'd stare!
Aye-dee-ay-hey, we roar and we swear...
at the horizon we'd stare!
