"For Boston" as written by and T.w. Allen....
For Boston for Boston, we sing our proud refrain for Boston
For Boston 'tis wisdom's earthly fame
For here are all one and our hearts are true
And the towers on the heights reach the heavens own blue.
For boston for boston 'til the echoes ring agin!

For Boston for Boston thy glory is our own
For Boston for Boston 'tis here that truth is known
And ever with a right shall our heirs be found
'Til time shall be no more and thy work is crowned
For Boston for Boston thy glory is our own!

    General CommentI think this song is pretty obviously about the Murphy's good old Boston pride. Doesn't mean much to all us people who don't live 'round there, but it's a pretty cool display of their hometown pride.

    General CommentGotta agree with ya man. I'm from Southy originally, been out of the city for years now. But everytime I listen to this song it brings back memories of the St. Paddy's day parade outside my old house, the big red one on the corner of Broadway and M.

    God I miss Boston.

    General CommentI'm from a tiny town south of Boston, regardless of that I have tons of Boston pride. This song is so kick ass as are DKM because of their Boston roots/pride and their Irish heritage, which is what I am. I loooove this song!!!! =)

    General CommentI LOVE BOSTON! And the Red Sox, who did win the WORLD SERIES! Ya fuck the Yankees. This song is one of my favorite DKM songs, and its awesome when they come back to play in Boston, and they start off the show with this song. Everyone just goes crazy and the flags are unrolled. DKM have the best fan base, no one can beat the DKM Boston fan base, no one.

    General CommentThis is actually the Boston College fight song. When I first started listening to the Dropkick Murphys, I was dating a girl who was going to BC. She recognized it right away.

    General CommentYup this is the Boston College Fight Song. It's actually one of the oldest in the country. BC's nickname is the Heights, because Gasson Tower is on top of a big hill on campus. The second verse is never used during football or hockey games, however, I'm pretty sure the Dropkicks are the only people who know it.
