Wolfe Tones - The Boston Burglar lyrics

Download The Boston Burglar 320kbps mp3

I was born and raised in Boston
A place you all know well
Brought up by honest parents
The truth to you I'll tell
Brought up by honest parents
And raised most tenderly
Till I became a sporting blade
At the age of twenty three

My character was taken
And I was sent to jail
My friends and parents tried in vain
For to get me out on bail
But the jury found me guilty
and the judge, he wrote it down
For the breaking of the Union Bank
You are sent to Charlestown

I stepped my foot on an east bound train
One cold December's day
In every station we passed through
I could hear the people say
There goes the Boston Burgler
In cold chains he is bound
For the the breaking of the Union Bank
He is sent to Charlestown

I was born and raised in Boston
A place you all know well
Brought up by honest parents
The truth to you I'll tell
Brought up by honest parents
And raised most tenderly
Till I became a sporting blade
At the age of twenty three
