lyrics

Well he worked as a carpenter 12 years ago
He worked his fingers to the bone
Built a little house on his grandaddies land
Married him a wife and settled down

The work dried up John Keavney was sinkin
He spent so many nights in the pub
He took to drinking whiskey spent his days in the bookies
And gambled his whole life down the drain.

John Keavney sold his land to some business men
Looked for someone else to take the blame
His drinkin and his gamblin his cheatin and his ramblin
Keavneys Shame

Well the years wore on John Keavney lost his home
His wife took the kids and headed off
Now you’ll often find him by the ATM Machine
Always tryna start a game of cards

John Keavney sold his land to some business men
Looked for someone else to take the blame
His drinkin and his gamblin his cheatin and his ramblin
Keavneys Shame
Keavneys Shame
Keavneys Shame
