Artist's Notes

Boots O'Reilly is a fictitious Irish character who I pictured had led a colourful life, including lots of time on the open road.


Lyrics

 

Boots O?Reilly

 

 

 

(Verse 1)

 

White goatee beard

 

Wild Irish hair

 

Long down his back

 

But Boots O?Reilly don?t care

 

 

 

(Verse 2)

 

Sun sculpted face

 

Bright hazel eyes

 

Life on the road

 

Under big ol? skies

 

 

 

(Verse 3)

 

Mud splattered boots

 

Card shufflin? hands

 

Spent all his life

 

Not making plans

 

 

 

(Chorus)

 

May the road rise up to meet you

 

Fields stay green and rivers blue

 

May the road rise up to meet you

 

We?re all just walking through

 

 

 

(Instrumental Bridge?)

 

 

 

(Verse 4)

 

White knuckle ride

 

Autumn of his life

 

Chemo had him reelin?

 

Docs cut him with a knife

 

 

 

(Verse 5)

 

Grey tilting bed

 

Death in the air

 

Stars out the window

 

Blind with their glare

 

 

 

(Verse 6)

 

White goatee beard

 

Wild Irish hair

 

Long down his back

 

But Boots O?Reilly don?t care

 

 

 

(Chorus)

 

May the road rise up to meet you

 

Fields stay green and rivers blue

 

May the road rise up to meet you

 

Yeah, we?re all just walking through

 

 

 

(Outro)

 

All just walking

 

Boots padding on the dirt

 

Mile after mile

 

Til we walk through the hurt ?
