Rocky Road To Dublin

	  		
Dm    C        Dm 
In the merry month of May from my home I started 
Dm       C        Dm   C 
Left the girls of Tuam-nearly broken-hearted 
   Dm    C     Dm 
Saluted Father dear kissed my darlin' Mother 
Dm      C       Dm      C 
Drank a pint of beer my grief and tears to smother 
     Dm              C         Dm                C 
Then off to reap the corn and leave where I was born 
  Dm               C        C 
I cut a stout blackthorn to banish ghost and goblin 
     Dm               C         Dm               C 
In a brand-new pair of brogues I rattled o'er the bogs 
    Dm                 C    C 
And frightened all the dogs on the rocky road to Dublin 
 A         C           Dm  
One two three four five 

     Dm 
Hunt the hare and turn her Down the rocky road 
         C                       Am        C      Dm 
And all the ways to Dublin Whack fol-lol-de-ra 

   Dm    C        Dm 
In Mullingar that night I rested limbs so weary 
Dm      C     Dm         C 
Started by daylight next morning light and airy 
Dm     C           Dm 
Took a drop of the pure to keep my heart from sinking 
Dm        C       Dm          C 
That's an Paddy d cure whene'er he's on for drinking 
   Dm             C      Dm               C 
To see the lasses smile laughing all the while 
Dm            C              C 
At me curious style 'twould set your heart a-bubbling 
     Dm            C          Dm        C 
They ax'd if I was hired the wages I required 
     Dm           C     C 
Till I was almost tired of the rocky road to Dublin 
 A         C           Dm  
One two three four five 

     Dm 
Hunt the hare and turn her Down the rocky road 
         C                       Am        C      Dm 
And all the ways to Dublin Whack fol-lol-de-ra 

   Dm     C      Dm 
In Dublin next arrived I thought it such a pity 
   Dm    C      Dm       C 
To be so soon deprived a view of that fine city 
Dm     C      Dm 
Then I took a stroll out among the quality 
   Dm     C      Dm    C 
My bundle it was stole in a neat locality 
Dm                   C     Dm              C 
Something crossed me mind then I looked behind 
  Dm               C     C 
No bundle could I find upon me stick a-wobblin' 
  Dm              C           Dm                C 
Enquiring for the rogue they said me Connaught brogue 
Dm             C     C 
Wasn't much in vogue on the rocky road to Dublin 
 A         C           Dm  
One two three four five 

     Dm 
Hunt the hare and turn her Down the rocky road 
         C                       Am        C      Dm 
And all the ways to Dublin Whack fol-lol-de-ra 

     Dm      C    Dm 
From there I got away me spirits never failing 
Dm     C      Dm   C 
Landed on the quay as the ship was sailing 
Dm      C     Dm 
Captain at me roared said that no room had he 
Dm     C       Dm       C 
When I jumped aboard a cabin found for Paddy 
Dm             C       Dm                C 
Down among the pigs I played some funny rigs 
Dm                 C         C 
Danced some hearty jigs the water round me bubblin' 
     Dm         C      Dm                C 
When off to Holyhead I wished meself was dead 
   Dm            C      C 
Or better far instead on the rocky road to Dublin 
 A         C           Dm  
One two three four five 

     Dm 
Hunt the hare and turn her Down the rocky road 
         C                       Am        C      Dm 
And all the ways to Dublin Whack fol-lol-de-ra 

    Dm      C    Dm 
The boys of Liverpool when we safely landed 
Dm       C      Dm      C 
Called meself a fool I could no longer stand it 
   Dm      C      Dm 
Me blood began to boil temper I was losin' 
Dm       C      Dm   C 
Poor old Erin's isle they began abusin' 
    Dm                C       Dm            C 
Hurrah my soul says I let my shillelagh fly 
     Dm               C   C 
Some Galway boys came by saw I was a hobblein 
     Dm             C         Dm              C 
Then with a loud Hurray they joined in the affray 
   Dm                  C    C 
We quickly cleared the way for the rocky road to Dublin 
 A         C           Dm  
One two three four five 

     Dm 
Hunt the hare and turn her Down the rocky road 
         C                       Am        C      Dm 
And all the ways to Dublin Whack fol-lol-de-ra
