NEW SINGLE: THE DEAD IRISH ‘Lost In The City’ OUT NOW

Trad Punk from the depths of Dublin city!

Lost In The City is the first release from Irish trad punk band The Dead Irish. Filmed in Dublin, Ireland during February 2022 and released one evening in July. The band was formed during Ireland’s strict lockdown during 2021 and Lost In The City is the first single to come out from their first EP.

As I walked down to Dublin town one evening in July
I met a little girl on Grafton Street She smiled as she passed me by
Such a charmin’ elf I had to coax myself to see if I was really there
She looked so neat from her head to her feet
The colour of her nut brown hair
I said “hey little girl won’t you tell me your name”
And “can I walk with you a while?”
I’m lost in the city all on my own
Lost in the city far away from home
*
 On Chancery Street at the Christian Mission I was looking for a place to hide
At the gates of Mountjoy Prison I was trying to get inside
She looked at me through her big brown eyes
She looked at me and smiled
She said I am your destiny
We took off side by side
We wandered north, we wandered south
And then we wandered back again
We were lost in the city all on our own
Lost in the city far away from home
*
 When I woke up the next morning
 Well I knew she wasn’t there
She left no note, nothing that she wrote
Just a lock of her nut brown hair
Won’t you listen to my story boys Its a tale I have to tell
If you see the girl with the nut brown hair
 Won’t you say that I wish her well
We talked all night till the break of dawn
 And fell asleep in each others arms
Lost in the city to all her charms
Lost in the city
 All night long
