Thin Lizzy

Thin Lizzy are an Irish rock band formed in Dublin in 1969. Two of the founding members, drummer Brian Downey and bass guitarist/vocalist Phil Lynott, met while still in school. Lynott assumed the role of frontman and led them throughout their recording career of twelve studio albums. Thin Lizzy are best known for their songs "Whiskey in the Jar", "Jailbreak" and "The Boys Are Back in Town", all major international hits still played regularly on hard rock and classic rock radio stations. After Lynott's death in 1986, various incarnations of the band have emerged over the years based around guitarists Scott Gorham and John Sykes, though Sykes left the band in 2009. more »

I was seldom sober in nineteen hundred and fifthy-four
Hey baby, maybe 'cause my baby had a baby by me
And I was still drinking dry gin
While you cried "no, no more"
And you were lyin' and a-cryin',
And your tears fell dying on the floor

And I'm brought down,
And I don't think I can get up again
Brought down,
My heart is hurt again

You were the fine lady in the early mornings
That always painted her toes
And lookin' towards the east
You'd say hello to the early dawn before they rose
And you were the love lady
That always hung up her finely pressed clothes
And sayin' so long to the western sundown,
You taught me how it grows

And I'm brought down,
And I don't think I can get up again
Brought down,
And you just hurt my heart again
Brought down
Brought down
I'm brought down

Brought down
Brought down
Brought down
Down

I'm brought down,
And I don't think I can get up again
I'm brought down,
I'm hurt, it's bad
Brought down
God, it's a shame there's no more Dr. Strangely strange
Brought down
And I'm brou-
Brought down
-ught down
Brought down
And there must be more to life than this
