"Echoes on A. Street" as written by and Orrell Casey....
Anxious nights give way to daylight
She don't cry and she don't complain
To honor, cherish, protect and keep you
She took your problems and took your name
All she wants to do is stroll down the island
She don't care if there's wind or there's rain
Only a women of her stature
Could shield you from the venom of this town's disdain

And she'll wait by your side
She'll never let you out of her sight
And she'll wait by your side,
You're the one thing that matters in her life

As she waits patiently by the window
She knows you'll be coming home soon
She'll sit quiet there and won't go
Her dedication can't be moved
She hears the echoes marching down "A" street
Like footsteps on the cobblestone
A pace to heavy to be her master
They pass her by and she's still alone

And she'll wait by your side
She'll never let you out of her sight
And she'll wait by your side,
You're the one thing that matters in her life

Shannon I'm coming home

She hears the echoes marching down "A" street
Like footsteps on the cobblestone
A pace to heavy to be her master
They pass her by and she's still alone

And she'll wait by your side
She'll never let you out of her sight
And she'll wait by your side,
You're the one thing that matters in her life

Shannon I'm coming home

Shannon I'm coming home

    General CommentMy bf LOVES Dropkick. He bought me this album and he always plays songs for me that he says were written for us. Well this song I dedicate to him. I love it.

    My OpinionI've always thought he was talking about his dog. All I can picture is a poor pup waiting by the window on her master who never returns home. It makes me cry every time I hear it.

    So as much as i love my husband, this sounds more like my puppy who does this every time we leave.

    Why a pup? well...

    General Comment"A pace to heavy to be her master."

    The word "master" gives away that the song is about a dog. If it was a NOFX song, it could still be about a girlfriend...

    General Commenti also thought that it was about a dog when i heard it the first time, however, this line suggests that he is talking about his wife "She took your problems and took your name"

    My InterpretationI just came from a Dropkick Murpheys concert. Ken Casey was saying how its about touring and being away from family, so its a tribute to their families back at home who they are away from for months when touring.
