INTRO C Dm C Dm C Dm F C C Dm C Dm McCormack and Richard Tauber, Are singing by the bed C Dm F C There's a glass of punch below your feet, And an angel at your head C Dm C Dm There's devils on each side of you, With bottles in their hand C Dm Am Am You'll need one more drop of poison, And you'll dream of foreign lands [STRUM CHANGE] (1, 2, 3,) F Bb C F When you pissed yourself in Frankfurt, And got syph down in Cologne F Bb C F And you heard the rattlin' death trains, As you lay there all alone F F Bb F Frank Ryan brought you whiskey, In a brothel in Madrid Bb Bb F C And you decked some fuckin' blackshirt, That was cursing all the yids F F Bb F At the sick bed of Cuchulainn, We'll kneel and say a prayer Bb F C F And the ghosts are rattlin' at the door, And the Devil's in the chair, Wheew [INST] F F Bb C F F Bb F F Bb C F And, In the Euston Tavern, You screamed it was your shout F Bb C F But they wouldn't give you service, So you kicked the windows out F F Bb F They took you out into the street, Kicked you in the brains Bb Bb F C So you walked back in through a bolted door, And did it all again F F Bb F At the sick bed of Cuchulainn, We'll kneel and say a prayer Bb F C F And the ghosts are rattlin' at the door, And the Devil's in the chair, Hey *STRUM* [INST] F F Bb C F F Bb C *CHANGE* F F Bb C F F Bb F C C C Dm C Dm You remember that foul evening, When you heard the Banshees howl C Dm F C There were lazy drunken bastards singing, Billy In The bowl C Dm C Dm They took you up to midnight mass, And left you in the lurch C Dm Am Am So you dropped a button in the plate, And spewed up in the church [STRUM CHANGE] (1, 2, 3,) F Bb C F Now, You'll sing a sing of liberty, For blacks and paks and jocks F Bb C F And they'll take you from this dump you're in, And stick you in a box F F Bb F Then they'll take you to Cloughprior, And shove you in the ground Bb Bb F C But you'll stick your head back out and shout, We'll have another round F F Bb F At the graveside of Cuchullainn, We'll kneel around and pray Bb F C F And God is in his Heaven, And Billy's down by the bay, Whoow INST: F F Bb C F F Bb F TO FADE
