Well I worked on the railroad For t'pence a day Drank down one penny The other I'd save For God knows how long I hammered and I hammered Well into madness, with each setting sun I put my head down and I dreamt you were here With me by the ol' tree, where no one could care Away from ya now Far Away Boys, Far Away Boys In her arms I'll be found I'm lyin' with my sweetheart Then the sun belched upon me Lyin' in your place was my hammer and my gear You were no longer here So I stamped out the fire that kept us both warm The ashes were fallin' Like the snow drops of old Dynamite and she'll blow We came to a mountain A big hole in that rock Away from ya now Like the one in my soul Far Away Boys, Far Away Boys I'm lyin' with my sweetheart In her arms I'll be found We buried four workmen They dug themselves well From four empty coffins, to four early graves They're only paddys, just paddys You'll need all your strength boys Don't dig them too deep And they're replaced easily With the heat I was melting Into your sweet lips Ah, your kiss takes me back Takes me back from all this Far Away Boys, Far Away Boys Away from ya now I'm lyin' with my sweetheart In her arms I'll be found Someone said it was Christmas The only thing growin' was my will to die Till the gaffer said 'men, your work here is done' But not a tree was in sight I said 'I'll see you in Hell, on that train we died for' You lips used to be But a pissed stained ol' gutter where: Never again, will I smell your sweet dream Far Away Boys, Far Away Boys Away from ya now I'm lyin' with my sweetheart In her arms I'll be found
