Lyrics

I didn't start with any plan now I'm free
Didn't choose any way to go it chose me
She's a woman with a few regrets, but sometimes she forgets
The best that she can do is let it be

I signed up with my sergeant on the square
He said I'd see the world over there
I've got to keep believin' in the day our flag will rise again
And hope those widowed mothers even care

So down I go, Ballymun Road
I'm no good to you anyhow
I've got my wits I've got my tongue
It's too late to turn back now
Down I go, Ballymun Road

Now you've got yours and darlin' I've got mine
Let's have that one last round for old times
I know you've got someplace to go
And I'm shippin' out this one man show
And leavin' Dublin city far behind

So down I go, Ballymun Road
I'm no good to you anyhow
I've got my wits I've got my tongue
It's too late to turn back now
Down I go, Ballymun Road

Someday I'll build my house right where I stand
And I'll live within the law if I can
I'll work my field ‘til the sun goes down
And have a drink with the boys in town
It's all that I was born to understand

So down I go, Ballymun Road
I'm no good to you anyhow
I've got my wits I've got my tongue
It's too late to turn back now
Down I go, Ballymun Road
