lyrics

Oh Derry oh, side of the road
Oh Momma come and carry me home

Whole lotta talking in the saloon
Whole lotta talking in town last night
Some folks say it ain’t proper
Some folks think they gonna set it right

Oh Derry oh (side of the road)
Oh Momma come and carry me home

Well I’m just waiting here by the oak grove
Waiting here to see who walk by
Maybe I gonna be quiet
Maybe nobody gonna have to die

Oh Derry oh (side of the road)
Oh Momma come and carry me home

Leave them bodies in the cavern
Leave them bodies with the dyn-o-mite
Take the long way through the valley
Likely won’t make home tonight

Oh Derry oh (side of the road)
Oh Momma come and carry me home

She say to me “We can fly home”
She show me we have wings to glide
We soar high – like a raven
Two birds flying in the pale moonlight

Oh Derry oh (side of the road)
Oh Momma come and carry me home
