[ Dedicated to Henry McCullough ]
 
Bushmills close at hand –an Irish heartbeat 
Stranded in the Ponderosa bar
Telling kids about Henry McCullough 
The magic of his rockin red guitar
 
Henry he came from the north of Ireland 
In a band they called The People he could rock
The one and only Irish guitar hero 
To grace the hallowed stage at old Woodstock

Henry’s guitar’s silent in the corner 
If only we could sing him back somehow
Gather round me now all ye failed Christians 
And pray away the trouble from his brow
 
Henry he played lead with McCartney
And he could make that Gibson guitar cry
And if you listen up to songs like My Love 
You’ll hear how Henry made Wings truly fly
 
Henry’s guitar’s silent in the corner 
If only we could bring him back somehow
Gather round me now all ye failed Christians 
And pray away the trouble from his brow
 
Go listen now to Belfast to Boston 
Go listen now to Blue Sunset too 
Henry you could play it like the devil 
We never more shall see the likes of you
 
Henry’s guitar’s silent in the corner 
If only we could bring him back somehow
Gather round me now all ye failed Christians 
And pray away the trouble from his brow
