It was  
G 
1962, I was  
C 
two years out of  
D 
school
 
When I  
G 
got on board a boat that was  
C 
bound for Liver
D 
pool
 
The  
G 
day we sailed away I re
C 
member it so  
D 
well
 
Took a  
G 
look at the North  
Em 
Wall 
 
and
D 
bid a fond far
G 
ewell
 
It’s a  
G 
hard thing to leave the  
C 
land of your  
G 
childhood
 
Touched by the rivers and  
Em 
kissed by the
C 
sea
 
The  
G 
places you  
D 
played with your  
C 
childhood 
 
com
G 
panions
 
To  
C 
leave dear old  
G 
Ireland and  
D 
Mother Mo  
G 
Chro?
 
Though I’m  
G 
going far away and I may  
C 
never 
 
re
G 
turn 
 
here
 
There’s one thing I always will  
Em 
keep 
 
within
C 
me
G 
Deep in my  
D 
heart a  
C 
furious 
 
de

The

On the  
G 
top of the Pentonville Road I  
C 
saw the sun  
G 
setting
 
The town laid out before me looked  
Em 
beautiful 
 
to
C 
me
G 
Away from all the  
D 
sighing, the  
C 
suffering and the  
G 
dying
 
I  
C 
dreamed of the  
G 
future, the  
D 
young and the  
G 
free
 
But the  
G 
years they go by quickly, now I  
C 
know I can’t re
G 
main 
 
here
 
Where each day brings me closer to that  
Em 
final 
 
mise
C 
ry
 
My  
G 
kids will never scrape  
D 
shit round here, and I  
C 
won’t die crying in a  
G 
pint of beer
 
I’m  
C 
going back to  
G 
Ireland and  
D 
Mother Mo
