LYRICS

Haunting Refrain ‘DANNY BOY’                    

Words & music by Tony Walsh ©2016

 

Wondered a lifetime, seen my share of pain.

Squandered a fortune and whiskeys to blame.

Fragmented memories are all that remain.

As my thoughts drift back to my home once again.

 

I can hear my father singing that haunting refrain.

A song that flows through the blood of its peoples veins.

Woven through the history of its country's pain.

As my thoughts drift back to my home once again.

 

Danny boy you are with me wherever I roam.

Through the streams and the hills your song still echos.

Future generations will sing of your name.

As i raise my glass to that song once again.

 

In my dreams I am strolling down Petticoat lane.

Faintly in the distance I hear the piper play.

There's a swell of emotion that cant be contained.

As my thoughts drift back to my home once again.

 

Danny boy you are with me wherever I roam.

Through the streams and the hills your song still echos.

Future generations will sing of your name.

As i raise my glass to that song once again.

 

As my thoughts drift back to my home once again. 

   

YOU CANT KILL THE LOVE IN ME.                            Words & Music by Tony Walsh ©2017 

                                                     

I've been a refugee 

I was lost at sea 

Until you came along and rescued me 

Stuck in no mans land 

We crossed the barren sands 

Until you lent a hand and set me free 

 

Lost in a maze, Tortured, enslaved, will I ever be free 

Free from the chains that bind me to pain and to misery 

 

You cant kill the love,  cant kill the love, you cant kill the love in me 

You cant kill the love,  cant kill the love, you cant kill the love in me. 

 

I’ve heard the thunder roar 

Seen the heavens pour 

Felt the earth quake beneath my feet 

Surrounded on all sides 

By nature’s raging tides 

To you I will confide love never dies. 

 

Lost in a maze, Tortured, enslaved will I ever be free    

Free from the chains that bind me to pain and to misery 

 

You cant kill the love,  cant kill the love,  you cant kill the love in me

                                                        YOU'RE ONE IN A MIRACLE.  

Words and Music by Tony Walsh c2020 

  

You’re one in a miracle 

You’re love is the light 

You’re one in a miracle 

Burning so bright 

And when the seeds of doubt 

Bring uncertainty 

You show me how beautiful  

This world can be 

 

Sometimes I feel forsaken 

But then I feel you near 

 

You’re one in a miracle 

You’re love is the light 

You’re one in a miracle 

Burning so bright 

Your all I see 

You help me believe

 

LORD REIGN O’ER ME.

Lord reign o’er me 

let your word, be my creed 

Lord hear my prayer 

Comfort me 

Lord rescue me

Lord hear my prayer 

Comfort me 

 

As I walk through the darkness 

I know your by my side 

If I falter, by temptation 

I’ll have the strength to make things right 

As I walk thru the darkness 

I know your by my side 

If I falter, by temptation 

I’ll have the strength to make things right 

 

Lord rescue me 

let your word, set me free 

Lord heed my prayer 

Comfort me 

Comfort me 

Comfort me 

Comfort me

Crazy Love. 

Words and Music By Tony Walsh ©2017

 

Crazy love why can’t you see 

You’ve brought nothing but trouble to me 

Crazy love just let me be 

From the torment you bring with your jealousy 

 

Crazy love can’t we agree 

You’ve brought nothing but trouble to me 

Crazy love just set me free 

From the torture you bring with your jealousy 

 

Your the same old love who won’t let me fall 

The same old love who’s there when I call 

The same old love that fills me with joy 

But that crazy love just wants to destroy

You are my world       

Words & Music by Tony Walsh ©2017

Sail away on a sea of dreams 

and I'll be by your side 

Take my hand we'll travel ancient lands 

and I will be your guide.

 

You are my world, you are my world.

 

To see a world within a pearl 

and heaven in a flower 

To embrace the human race 

and cherish every hour.

 

 You are my world, you are my world

 

Life is a riddle 

Cloaked in a mystery 

Then locked in a puzzle. 

But love in it's simplicity 

Holds the key to the mystery 

To unlock the puzzle. 

 

So here I sit wondering which 

path led to life's bliss. 

The road I took was living proof 

it all began with YOU.

She Took Everything But The Blame. 

Words and music by Tony Walsh ©2020

She took the house 

She took the car 

She took the kids 

She’s gone too far 

 

She took the dog 

She took the cat 

My cowboy hat 

What's up with that 

 

She took my money and that ain't funny 

Just for fun she took my guns 

 

And just for spite with great delight 

She had a date with my ex-wife 

Put the photos on her website 

 

She took everything but the blame 

That girl's insane 

Nothing remains 

She took everything but the blame 

Now drinks champagne 

And still complains 

She took everything, everything, everything but the blame 

 

She filed a claim and took my name 

Convinced the judge that I’m insane 

 

And just for spite with great delight  

She had a date with my ex-wife  

Put the photos on her website  

  

She took everything but the blame  

That girl's insane  

Nothing remains  

She took everything but the blame  

Now drinks champagne  

And still complains  

She took everything, everything, everything but the blame 

 

She took the photos of my mother 

And my little brother 

She took my Jack she took my beer 

And that brought me to tears 

She took my 57 Chevy 

And she drove it in the levee 

Then she trashed my Harley 

And threw a great big party 

Now she's got new lovers 

One of them is my brother 

The other's my best friend 

Will this torture never end 

 

She took everything but the blame 

That girl's insane 

Nothing remains 

She took everything but the blame 

Now drinks champagne 

And still complains 

She took everything, everything, everything but the blame

You are visitor number: 78

THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO ME. 

Words and music by Tony Walsh ©2016 

Feel the warmth in her embrace 

The tenderness she radiates 

She turned out to be, 

The best thing to happen to me 

 

She’s the fire when I feel cold 

The easy chair when I feel old 

She turned out to be, 

The best thing to happen to me 

 

And my love is a raging sea 

With tides that never cease 

Fueled by jealousy 

And her love is a rhapsody 

It’s a haunting melody 

That brings me to my knees 

To my knees 

She’s the best thing to happen to me 

 

A mother’s touch when the fevers high 

She quench the thirst when the well runs dry 

She turned out to be, 

The best thing to happen to me. 

 

And my love is a raging sea 

With tides that never cease 

Fueled by jealousy 

And her love is a rhapsody 

It’s a haunting melody 

That brings me to my knees 

To my knees 

She’s the best thing to happen to me

Once in a while we all fall 

Words & music by Tony Walsh ©2019

 

Once in a while we all fall 

Unsure of the path to take 

Life can mislead, and people deceive 

It can lead us to question our faith 

 

Once in a while we all dream 

Of riches, fortune and fame                                 

In reality the world you will see 

Is driven by greed, lies and hate 

 

When dreams turn to dust 

And your mettle to rust 

And there’s discord in harmony 

The answer it seems, was right before me 

Never let you fears rule your heart 

 

Once in a while we all cry 

When life is to hard to take 

A trusted old friend on whom you depend 

Brings comfort and restores your faith 

 

When dreams turn to dust 

And your mettle to rust 

And there’s discord in harmony 

The answer it seems, was right before me 

Never let your fears rule your heart 

 

The rivers only deep if you cant swim 

The tide will drag you down 

But faith will pull you in 

The answer you see, was right before me 

Never let your fears rule your heart 

Once in a while we all fall

OLD TIME COUNTRY SONG           

Words and music by Tony Walsh ©2017  

It’s just an old time country song 

The words relate to everyone 

Your heart is breaking as you sing along 

It’s just an old time country song 

 

Grandma’s listening to the radio 

Willie Nelson singing ‘way down low’ 

We sit around and sing along 

To those old time country songs.

 

Some people say that country’s done. 

That it should go back where it started from 

The new songs don't belong 

In a world of country songs. 

 

Fried catfish on the stove   

Hank William's on the radio 

We sing and dance all night long 

To those old time country songs 

 

Some people say that country’s done. 

That it should go back where it started from 

The new songs don't belong 

In a world of country songs 

 

Sister’s crying cause she’s all alone 

Locked in her room with the gramophone 

She plays the same song all day long 

It’s just an old time country song 

 

Timeless songs from long ago 

Bring distant memories from that still echo 

Of Simpler times when we would sing along 

To those old time country songs 

 

Bring back those old time country songs 

Bring back dancing in your lovers arm’s  

Bring back songs where we sing along 

Bring back those old time country songs.
