BLOOD BROTHERS

Live 23 Apr 2008 version


[Spoken intro:] Good evening Orlando. This was something in remembrance of Danny.

[Danny Federici tribute film montage]

Once we were kids playing king of the mountain on the end
World came charging up the hill, we were women, we were men
We stood by each other's side, each one fighting for the other
And we swore until we died we'd always be blood brothers

Now the hardness of this world slowly grind your world away
Making nothing but a fool's joke of the promises we made
It's a long and rough ride and there ain't much cover
With no one by your side now, my blood, blood brother

[guitar solo]

Through the houses of the dead past those fallen in the tracks
Always moving ahead and never looking back

Now I don't know how I feel, I don't know how I feel tonight
How I've fallen 'neath the wheel, how I've lost or gained sight
But the stars are burning bright like some mystery uncovered
I'll keep moving through the dark with you in my heart, my blood brother
My blood brother
My blood brother
My blood brother
