Flogging Molly - To Youth (My Sweet Roisin Dubh) Lyrics

To Youth (My Sweet Roisin Dubh)

Tell me why must a man be of service,
to his lord and his god, seldom high?
From the grave sprang the names of our fathers
but there's no glint in a dead man's eye.

Tell me why are our feilds filled with hunger
and suits us to crop bitter soil
so I say my farewell to a nation,
as dear leif waves goodbye to his son.

So it's to youth I sing you the story
and it's of youth I sing it now
like a train that's derailed without warning
I must leave what I've left far behind
So good bye sweet roisin dubh
I say good bye

Tell me why must our peace be this puzzled
that fractures the land, splinters war
dead as nails like the shame in our coffin
but in the end we must all die alone.

So it's to youth I sing you the story
and it's of youth I sing it now
like a train that's derailed without warning
Some must leave what they've left far behind.
So good bye sweet roisin dubh
I say good bye

and the bark fell from tree
to the ground that now bleeds
on the anguish that never learned to shelter
when the crash of the gong will surrender the gun
and of the sadness we shall no longer speak,
until time can move on
are they all forgotten songs that's
when I and we will sing again
so good bye to my love
my sweet roisin dubh
good bye now until we meet again

[To Youth (my Sweet Roisin Dubh) lyrics on http://www.elyricsworld.com]

Tell me why must our grief still be greiving
for language that never spoke it's loss
but this tongue split with fire
will tear down the barbed wire
rip the belly from the waxy ghost.

So It's to youth I sing you a story
and it's of youth I sing it now
like a train that derailed without warning
we must leave what we left far behind

So It's to youth I sing you a story
and it's of youth I sing it now
like a train that derailed without warning
we must leave what we left far behind

So good bye sweet roisin dubh
I say good bye
So good bye sweet roisin dubh
i say good bye
Until we meet again
Until we meet again
Until we meet again.

Now she arrives to beautify
but slumber now must rest,
oh my roisin dubh
I'll forever love
the youth you once possesed.
