"Never Alone" as written by Ken Casey, Rick Barton and Matthew Edward Kelly....
You say its because we're boisterous
You hate us 'cause we got our dignity
There's a difference between the two of us
It's a sense of morality and what corrupts
We stand together so proud and strong
This is a place where we belong

We got loyal friends
We keep our heads held high,
We'll stick together you and I
Don't need no guns or no drugs on our streets
just a place to go and the boots on our feet.

Young skinhead they call you hooligan
Just because you don't make any sense to them
You're a hardworking man whose paid his dues
But they still call you racist on the evening news
But the blood that runs right down your wrist
Don't come from a knife, but the cuts on your fist

Your torn up knuckles and faded blue jeans
Are the colors you wear and the life that you've seen
You tell the truth look people in the eye
Don't live your life in no baggy disguise.

Never alone,
The city streets are where we roam.
Never alone,
This is Boston it's our home.
Never alone,
The city streets are where we roam.
Never alone,
This is Boston it's our home.

Don't need no gang to watch my ass
Just loyal friendship and a pint of Bass
In the midst of the chaos and insanity
I'm a member of the working class society
We'll sweat in the ring and bleed in the streets
But our will and spirit can never be beat

You can shoot and you can kick but together we'll stick
Through thick and thin not stick or stone
Can break the bond that has here grown
Arm and Arm We Fight As One.

Never alone,
The city streets are where we roam.
Never alone,
This is Boston it's our home.
Never alone,
The city streets are where we roam.
Never alone,
This is Boston it's our home.

Never alone,
The city streets are where we roam.
Never alone,
This is Boston it's our home.
Never alone,
The city streets are where we roam.
Never alone,
This is Boston it's our home.

    General Commentok lets face the the dropkick murphys are a skinhead band with hair, I mean hell they got al barr, the definitive skinhead hero, singing now

    this song is about keeping your freinds close, drinking on the street, getting into fights, good skinhead anthem right there

    this song helped me realize I was a damn bootboy

    its a song about living life fist to fist and side by side. abotu solidarity and not taking any shit

    Oi!Oi!Oi!

    General Comment"Always a popular choice at a Dropkick show."

    To me this song is a skinhead/working class anthem about sticking by your friends and leading an honest life. Also, about how skinheads are often criticized and misunderstood.
