Black Shamrock

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Robert Hunter

Black Shamrock, cut out the smart talk
If you can't hack it, why don't you walk
Get away, while it's still a sunny day
Follow through
Remember what you're dreaming of
(Dreaming of)
Somewhere there's an altitude
Bound to match your attitude

Shadowland memory
Three-part harmony
Might as well be you as me
And you can sing on key
Yes, indeed
Remember what you're dreaming of
(Dreaming of)

Black Shamrock, hung up in dry dock
Forces in deadlock, you know what you know
Fall below, you're a very easy laugher, but you know
Can't laugh at what you're dreaming of
(Dreaming of)
When it's all said and done
Maybe you should cut and run

Full speed power dive
Kick it into overdrive
If anyone gets out alive
It might as well be you
Follow through
Remember what you're dreaming of
(Dreaming of)

(Dreaming of)
(Dreaming of)

Black Shamrock, shoot off the padlock
This is your own place, you don't have to knock
No one's home
You live here on your own
Yeah, you do
Remember what you're dreaming of
(Dreaming of)

Sterling steel, made to last
Shame the scandals of your past
Stake your claim and mine it fast
You've nothing left to prove
Follow through
Remember what you're dreaming of
(Dreaming of)
Black Shamrock
(Dreaming of)
(Dreaming of)
(Dreaming of)
(Dreaming of)
