The Warrior's Code ~ Dropkick Murphys


Artist: Dropkick Murphys
Guthrie Lyric: "I'm Shipping Up To Boston" / Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Dropkick Murphys

This marks the second time Boston based punk rockers, Dropkick Murphys have set a previously unused Woody Guthrie lyric to music. The Warrior's Code features "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" written around a whimsical lyric about a sailor who lost his wooden leg in Boston. "When Nora gave us the green light to go through the archives and take we wanted," says vocalist/bassist and founding member Ken Casey, "we looked through thousands of his songs. Obviously, there were a lot of deep songs about World War II and labor stuff, but randomly in the middle of all these serious lyrics was this silly song, which seemed kind of cool. When other people do Woody's stuff, you normally don't see that light-hearted side of his work."
