The Lyrics

Born up in Boston, Mass. in "29"
Project raised, stole and fought all the time
Led a street gang, the "Shamrocks" were his kind
Made reform school, for gettin' out'a line
Whitey, Whitey Bulger, Crime was his life's career

In year, "48" - they let him go
Joined the U.S, Air Force, stationed Idaho
Won't follow orders - not somethin' he knows
Kept assaultin' his buddies instead of foes,
Whitey, Whitey Bulger, tossed in the stockade, there

Honorable discharge, Fifty-two, and then
Hijacked and robbed - sent to Atlanta Penn
Exper'ment, LSD - volunteered, and
His sentence was reduced - served less than ten
Whitey, Whitey Bulger, puts his act in high gear

Back home to Boston, there's a big mob war
Worked for Don Killeen, killin' was his chore
He rose up through the ranks - with murders, gore
Notorious legend for evermore..
Whitey, Whitey Bulger, liked spreadin' waves of fear

Whitey was ruthless, ruthless as they come
A decent trait, he harbored none
Hired by FBI to snitch - "Seven-one"
Overlooked his sinnin' - past crimes he had done
Whitey, Whitey Bulger, one lucky racketeer

Law busted Whitey, then let him go
Cuz' the FBI said it wasn't so
Snitched on his rivals - till small they'd grow
Just his pal and him - left to run the show
Whitey, Whitey Bulger, ran Boston many years

Near end of the "Nineties" fate would flip the nest
An expose' - of his law incest
Fled and hid sixteen years, but became unblessed
Due a life sentence - eighty-plus - what's left?
Whitey, Whitey Bulger, crime was his life's career

Crime was his life's career
