Ferocious Dog - Quiet Paddy lyrics

Paddy was a quiet man, an honest man they say He lived in Connemara all his days He just wants a quiet life to work his piece of land The soldiers came and blew his dreams away Listen to the west winds And listen to the cries And Paddy's there plotting your demise Here was a man with his sword and his pride They've left him as an outlaw with no place hide Left him as an outlaw, with no place to hide A thousand miles from nowhere when you're on the rugged road The highway's paved with danger all the way So he gathered him an army and he swore revenge For the rape of his homelands he would pay They say that Connemara was a rugged road Thunder storms turn night time into day When fighting in the mountains it's a way of life There's rebellion in those hills I heard them say Listen to the west winds............................. The battle started raging on into the night The river running by was turned to red "The bloodshed and the slaughter wouldn't cease," they cried 'til every soldier there was lying dead Listen to the west winds............................
