D/F#     F#m7 Bm7      Em11
Who does not adore the sound
   A                     Em11
Of music in the names of towns
   D11                              A7sus4
To build a city on such picturesque ground
     Em         Bsus2/13  Bm13    A7/13
That takes some sort  of  flair
 
  D/F#    F#m7     Bm7    Em11
We draw a line the ink is fear
A                             Em11
You stay that side we'll stay here
     D11                   A7sus4
It's far harder to keep it up
Em      Bsus2/13  Bm13    A7/13
Than to tear  it  down
 
        Gmaj7                D/F#
Does it take you back to the kind of world
Gmaj7                    [A] Aadd9  A
Hindsight calls the good old days?
         Gmaj7                 D/F#
Now that there's no room in an Einstein world
    Gmaj7           [A] Aadd9  A
For simple cause and effect
 
*Gmaj7  Em  A A6   Gmaj7 A
 Dub----lin        Du---blin     
*Gmaj7 Em A   A6 Gmaj7 A
 Home  of pretty Co----leens
*Gmaj7  Em  A A6   Gmaj7 A
 Dub----lin        Du---blin     
*Gmaj7  Em A    A6  Gmaj7 A
  Nurse of such bit-ter   dreams

  D/F#     F#m7     Bm7    Em11
Behind the soft and peachy skin
      A               Em11
Where D.N.A. or God begin
D11                       A7sus4
Where sub-Gaelic rot sets in
     Em      Bsus2/13  Bm13    A7/13
With stories from your mother
   D/F#      F#m7  Bm7    Em11
In myths and less exalted forms
    A                       Em11
The heady cocktail glory is born
    D11                     A7sus4
You know it's not a bottled storm
   Em     Bsus2/13 Bm13    A7/13
So why do you    indulge it?
 
*Gmaj7  Em  A A6   Gmaj7 A
 Dub----lin        Du---blin     
*Gmaj7 Em A   A6 Gmaj7 A
 Home  of pretty Co----leens

 Dub----lin        Du---blin     
*Gmaj7  Em A    A6  Gmaj7 A
  Nurse of such bit-ter   dreams

That's what my mother told me
When I was about knee-high
That's what my mother told me
When I was about knee-high
That's what my mother told me
When I was about knee-high
That's what my mother told me
