"The Warrior's Code" as written by and Wallace Barr....
You're the fighter, you've got the fire
The spirit of a warrior, the champion's heart
You fight for your life because the fighter never quits
You make the most of the hand you're dealt
Because the quitter never wins
No!

You were born to box in a city that's seen their share
Mello, Ryan, Carney, among them your photo proudly hangs there
Above the bar in the Gaelic Club
They tell the story of a throwback
With the heart of a lion
They salute your glory

It's another murderous night
Another left hook from hell
A bloody war on the boardwalk
And the kid from Lowell rises to the bell

Micky, it's a warrior's code
Micky, he's got the warrior's soul

Micky, it's a warrior's code
Micky, he's got the warrior's soul
Micky, it's a warrior's code

    General CommentThis is, of course, the albums title, as well as the first single. It is among my least favorite songs on this album.

    I assumed Micky (freehat17 misspelled the name) was the guy from the Rocky movies, but as it turns out (the liner notes tell us):

    "This song is about Massachusettes' own Micky Ward, a boxing legend who defines the heart and sould of the sport. He also happens to be the guy on the front cover..."

    General Commentwell yeah that is obvious, cause the guy they are singing about is boxing in the song. hence the left hook from hell, and his picture is hung up with the other pictures there.

    General CommentMicky Ward is an Irish boxer from Lowell,Ma....His first fight with Arturo Gatti was voted "Fight of the Century" and for 2 consecutive years he was involved in the "Fight of the Year"
    While he wasn't the best fighter, he was definitly one of the toughest. His never quit attitude and vicious left hook to the body are what made him a legend to fellow Irishmen and New Englanders

    General CommentOk, so I finally just saw the fight between Ward and Gatti online, and omg, they weren't kidding. Easily one of the best fights in the last 25 years. Especially the 9th round... unreal.
