This is an original tune I wrote and had Jeff Bohannon do the demo for me. Jeff is a very talented and accomplished musician, singer and songwriter.

Lyrics

Wild Irish Rose
All words and music by Don Eidman 2016
demo services by Jeff Bohannon

Just 14 hanging out in the
City
Me and 2 other boys
We meet in the alley
Waiting for the town drunk
Poor old Mr. Mc Coy

Gave him a buck 48,
Few dollars for him troubles
He brought her back in a
Paper bag
Just 3 kids turning up that
Bottle
The best times we ever had

Drinking Wild Irish Rose
Sitting at the end of the Em road
Say that -Screw top wine is gonna
Kill ya liver
Drinking Wild Irish Rose

Earle went to college, then Teddy to
Prison
And I went to the war
Just full of pride and full of fear
Never knew what I was there for

Then one night while down in the
trenches
Shaking from my head to my toes
Calmed myself down
Just by thinking
Of my days with Wild Irish Rose

Drinking Wild Irish Rose
Sitting at the end of the road
Say that Screw top wine is gonna
Kill ya liver
Drinking Wild Irish Rose

Many years latter
We went Teddy’s funeral n
Prison time done him no good
Spent most his life
Between jail and rehab
He tried the best he could

Earl was always good with money
And college served him well
I wondered if Teds first drink
Caused that life of hell

Bridge
So we gathered our thoughts
Took a walk in the city
Just a few blocks not far
I knew in my heart
That we would ended up
Down at the corner bar.

Went through in the door
Then to cooler
Her label was the same
She was hanging round her old friends
Mad dog ,TBird Night train

Laid a 20 dollar bill
Down on the counter
Told the girl she could keep the change
Screwed the top off then
downed that bottle
With a toast to Teddy’s
Name

Guess in life we all find demons
And there some we can’t let go
Just 3 young boys getting in trouble A With Wild Irish Rose
Chorus to ouT_to
