about

Now, we at ShamRocks love ourselves some shanties - it's the perfect thing to yell after a night out drinking, and they do help keep spirits high when you have to haul a broken-down car coming back from a tour. This specific one talks about all the things we like - Irish food, drinks, and craic! And of course, it wouldn't be like us if we didn't mess with the original, so our version comes with an all-original ShamRocks arrangement combining several styles: Irish trad, punk rock, reggae, and even stoner rock - the latter a new and totally cool trip for all involved.
And most importantly, we've been keeping this song all secret, so the EP release will be a true world premiere! Give a listen to the preview attached to whet your appetite!

lyrics

Oh, we'd be alright if the wind was in our sails
We'd be alright if the wind was in our sails
We'd be alright if the wind was in our sails
And we'll all hang on behind...

And we'll ro-o-oll the old chariot along!
We'll ro-o-oll the golden chariot along!
We'll ro-o-oll the old chariot along!
And we'll all hang on behind!

Oh, we'd be alright if we make it round The Horn
We'd be alright if we make it round The Horn
We'd be alright if we make it round The Horn
And we'll all hang on behind...

And we'll ro-o-oll the old chariot along!
We'll ro-o-oll the golden chariot along!
We'll ro-o-oll the old chariot along!
And we'll all hang on behind!

And another pint of stout wouldn't do us any harm
And another pint of stout wouldn't do us any harm
Oh, another pint of stout wouldn't do us any harm
And we'll all hang on behind...

And we'll ro-o-oll the old chariot along!
We'll ro-o-oll the golden chariot along!
We'll ro-o-oll the old chariot along!
And we'll all hang on behind!

And a night on the town wouldn't do us any harm
A night on the town wouldn't do us any harm
Oh, a night on the town wouldn't do us any harm
And we'll all hang on behind...

And we'll ro-o-oll the old chariot along!
We'll ro-o-oll the golden chariot along!
We'll ro-o-oll the old chariot along!
And we'll all hang on behind!
