Stand Up To Your Devils

  		Chord progression is G C G D / Em C G D 

verse 1: 

   G         C          G               D 
I grew up in Ireland in dear old Dublin town 

G               C                G                D 
brought up by a people who`d let nothing get them down 

Em                 C                G               D 
I was taught while still a child to stand up for me rights 

Em                  C                G               D 
Prepare to face the devil that would plague me in my life 

verse 2: 

I served a long apprenticeship a very honest trade 
and met so many devils of whom I felt afraid 
But fathers words came back to me when I wanted to back down 
I looked each devil in the eye and boldly stood me ground 

G C G D Stand up to your devils or they`ll walk over you G C G D remember, son, the devils come in many shapes and hues Em C G D There`s devil that is handsome, the devil that is mean Em C G D Some of them look scruffy and some look far too clean
verse 3: I tried me hand at courting and women found me sweet Until I met McKenna who knocked me off my feet Oh Lord was she a lover with a temper of a shrew She not just knocked me off me feet, she knocked me black and blue verse 4: Sure she was a devil dressed up in Angel`s guise When you`d least expect a cloud she`d hit you `tween the eyes She started talking marriage each time she looked at me I felt 'twas time I got to know the devils of the sea - Chorus verse 5: I waved my hand and said goodbye as ship pulled from the quay Adventure layed before me and so did seven seas I travelled many ocean miles and found from east to west The devils you are safest with are those that you know best - Chorus
