Lyrics of Paddy

From his window he watches as people they come and go on their way
Rushin' to catch the train homewards as he often did in his day
He remembers the dark of the mornings the days he worked in the rain
The good times the bad times and the friends that he knew he'll never see them again
At night when the streets are deserted except for the take away signs
He thinks of the men that he worked with
On the buildings the roads and the mines
The girl that he met in the Galtee
He thought he might make her his own
Maybe if there was less drinkin'
He wouldn't have wound up alone
P is for powerful when put to the test
A is for always doin' your best
D is for doin' if it can be done and
D is for drinkin' when workin' was done
Y is for yearnin' to see home again
Proud to be Irish and hard workin' men
Paddy remember though your day is done
You're the rock that England stands on
He can never explained just what happened
The years seemed to pass like a day
Was it the rain or the shovel? took the strength from his limbs away
Sometimes he thinks of the boreen
That led from his house to the lane
And the fields that he worked with his father he'll never see them again
P is for powerful when put to the test
A is for always doin' your best
D is for doin' if it can be done and
D is for drinkin' when workin' was done
Y is for yearnin' to see home again
Proud to be Irish and hard workin' men
Paddy remember though your day is done
You're the rock that England stands on
As he makes his way back to the shelter rain starts to fall on the ground
A young man just in from Cork city
Asks him where work could be found
He said son take a long look at Paddy
And remember what ever you do
This broken old man that you're seein'
Was once a young fellow like you
P is for powerful when put to the test
A is for always doin' your best
D is for doin' if it can be done and
D is for drinkin' when workin' was done
Y is for yearnin' to see home again
Proud to be Irish and hard workin' men
Paddy remember though your day is done
You're the rock that England stands on
