Lyrics

Up the Mississippi from the port of New Orleans
A troubadour just out of the Merchant Marines
Like many a lad from every corner of this world
He was lookin’ to catch the eye of an American girl

A mind full of wonder and a coupla quid
A bucketful of stories from his old Dublin town
He’ll sing them and dream them with a little Irish luck
With the love of his life she’s in her wedding gown

This side of a miracle
By grace of God or force of will
I see so many lights we must believe
I choose the path I go
I’ll get another chance and another dream

Another drop of whiskey for my friends and me
Play a tune to remind us of home
Another shot of revelry to make me free
I wanna hear the waves and feel the wind blow

Father Shea said no way he would make it through the night
The good times he’s having gonna cost him his life
A life full of glory no regrets and no remorse
But there is no temptation when you got no choice

This side of a miracle
By grace of God or force of will
I see so many lights we must believe
I choose the path I go
I’ll get another chance and another dream
