dropkick murphys - barroom heroes
Tabbed By: papajohhn
EMail: papajohn@yahoo


Face-down in the gutter, won't admit defeat
Though his clothes are soiled and black
He's a big strong man with a child's mind
Don't you take his booze away

C
He's been at it for years 
C
Drinkin' balls and beer 
C          F		     C
He's a hero to most he meets 
F
But inside he cries
F	     C
Black, swollen eyes 
G                   F           C       
This man he sheds no tears 

	repeat this power chord progression throughout the whole song

Now his wife and kids sing a different tune 
As they worry about their daddy dying
But this arrogant fool breaks every rule
It'll be nothing but pride that kills him

Could he listen- No he won't
That's all she wrote 
He'll be dead before the daylight shines
But the thoughts and prayers OF A MILLION STRONG
might keep this fool dying

He's a legend in the bar with every scar
Fights a thousand bigger men
But now he fights and looses 
Got all the bruises
Will someone please step in

This irish fool's got a great big heart
He keeps climbing back in to the ring 
In the low down circles
Where he holds his court
This man he was once king

Could he listen - NO HE WON'T
That's all she wrote 
He'll be dead before the daylight shines
But the thoughts and prayers 
Of a million strong might keep this fool from dying

	play this riff during the bridge

	bridge
This one goes out to the boston punching skins, a rowdy bunch they are
This one goes out to everyone at 656 adams street, how ya doin’, fellaaahs
This one goes out to collin rivers, amdon shawnly and jimmy mcholdon, bar room heroes who are no longer with us
And last but not least, this one goes out to billy tamen and walter manlyn, teo young lads who will never have to wined up on the bar room floor, ever again

He's a legend in the bar with every scar
Fights a thousand bigger men
But now he fights and looses 
Got all the bruises
Will someone please step in

This irish fool's got a great big heart
He keeps climbing back in to the ring 
In the low down circles
Where he holds his court
This man he was once king

Could he listen- No he won't
That's all she wrote 
He'll be dead before the daylight shines
But the thoughts and prayers OF A MILLION STRONG
might keep this fool dying
