lyrics

Whiskey by the mound

Drinking Whiskey by the mound,
The parting glass, in hand, is found.
We will drink and we will fight. (Fight!)
We will stand here ‘till daylight. (Right!)
Drinking whiskey to the sound,
The parting glass is sung so proud.
We will drink and we will fight. (Fight!)
We will stand here ‘till daylight.


We got in some fights, but we turned out alright.
They could knock us down, but we'd come back around
The spirit survived of olden times.

Just friends on the corner,
All we had was each other.
That spirit still survives.

Times they have changed,
But one thing remains;
Our heads are still held high.

Some of our best now lay to rest.
For you, we sing this song.

As years pass by, I sometimes,
I wonder why it's you who's gone, while I'm hanging on.
So, we raise our glass and toast to you who passed, and sing this song, sing loud and long.

We’re drinking Whiskey by the mound,
The parting glass, in hand, is found.
We will drink and we will fight. (Fight!)
We will stand here ‘till daylight. (Right!)
Drinking whiskey to the sound,
The parting glass is sung so proud.
We will drink and we will fight. (Fight!)
We will stand here ‘till daylight.

We got in some fights, but we turned out alright.
They could knock us down, but we'd come back around.
The spirit survived of olden times.

We walked in together
And that's how we'd leave.
You’d die for me, I'd live for you.

We came from different places,
but troubles all the same,
the tough times bound the crew.

But street lights shine bright in the rain
And pain helped guide us through.


As years pass by, I sometimes,
I wonder why it's you who's gone, while I'm hanging on.
So, we raise our glass and toast to you who passed, and sing this song, sing loud and long.

Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi!
Oi! Oi! Oi!

We’re drinking Whiskey by the mound,
The parting glass, in hand, is found.
We will drink and we will fight.
We will stand here ‘till daylight.
Drinking whiskey to the sound,
The parting glass is sung so proud.
We will drink and we will fight.
and I'll see you again some night.

Well, I’ll see you down below,
Let it go, go, go, go, go.
When I see you down below,
Let it go, let it go.
Well, I’ll see you down below,
Let it go, go, go, go, go.
When I see you down below,
Let it go.
Let it go!

about

DEADIRON Cleveland, Ohio

Born on the storm-battered industrial-wasteland of Lake Erie’s shores, Cleveland metal titans Deadiron find themselves on the precipice of change. Dire economic conditions, line-up changes, and a political climate rife with tension have torn apart many a band, but those elements only forged members of Deadiron into a unit bound and determined for musical domination. ... more
