The Irish Rover

Chords and lyrics for The Irish Rover by The Pogues

 
On the  
G 
Fourth of July, eighteen hundred and  
C 
six
 
We set  
G 
sail from the sweet cove of  
D 
Cork
 
We were  
G 
sailing away with a cargo of  
C 
bricks
 
For the  
G 
Grand City  
D 
Hall in New  
G 
York
 
‘Twas an  
G 
elegant craft,  
D 
rigged fore and aft
 
And oh,  
G 
how the wild wind  
C 
drove 
 
her
 
She could  
G 
stand a great blast, She had  
Em 
twenty seven  
C 
masts
 
And they  
G 
called her The  
D 
Irish 
 
 
G 
Rover
 
We had  
G 
one million bags of the best Sligo  
C 
rags
 
We had  
G 
two million barrels of  
D 
stone
 
We had  
G 
three million sides of old blind horses  
C 
hides
 
We had  
G 
four million  
D 
barrels of  
G 
bone
 
We had  
G 
five million hogs, And  
D 
six million dogs
G 
Seven million barrels of  
D 
porter
 
We had  
G 
eight million bails of old  
Em 
nanny-goats’ 
 
 
C 
tails
 
In the  
G 
hold of the  
D 
Irish 
 
 
G 
Rover
 
There was  
G 
awl Mickey Coote who played hard on his  
C 
flute
 
When the  
G 
ladies lined up for a  
D 
set
 
He was  
G 
tootin’ with skill for each sparkling  
C 
quadrille
 
Though the  
G 
dancers were  
D 
fluther’d and  
G 
bet
 
With his  
G 
smart witty talk he was  
D 
cock of the walk
 
And he  
G 
rolled the dames under and  
D 
over
 
They all  
G 
knew at a glance when he  
Em 
took up his  
C 
stance
 
That he  
G 
sailed in The  
D 
Irish 
 
 
G 
Rover
 
There was  
G 
Barney McGee from the banks of the  
C 
Lee
 
There was  
G 
Hogan from County Ty-
D 
-rone
 
There was  
G 
Johnny McGurk who was scared stiff of  
C 
work
 
And a  
G 
chap from West
D 
meath called  
G 
Malone
 
There was  
G 
Slugger O’Toole,  
D 
drunk as a rule
G 
Fighting Bill Treacy from  
D 
Dover
 
And your  
G 
man, Mick MacCann from the  
Em 
banks of the  
C 
Bann
 
Was the  
G 
skipper of the  
D 
Irish 
 
 
G 
Rover
 
We had  
G 
sailed seven years when the measles broke  
C 
out
 
And our  
G 
ship lost its way in the  
D 
fog
 
And that  
G 
whale of a crew was reduced down to  
C 
two
 
Just  
G 
myself and the  
D 
Captain’s old  
G 
dog
 
Then the  
G 
ship struck a rock, oh  
D 
Lord! what a shock
 
The  
G 
boat it flipped right  
D 
over
 
Turned  
G 
nine times around, and the  
Em 
poor old dog was  
C 
drowned
 
I’m the  
G 
last of the The

The Band Played Waltzing Matilda

Chords and lyrics for The Band Played Waltzing Matilda by The Pogues

 
When I was a  
D 
young man, I  
A 
carried my pack.
 
And I lived the free  
E 
life, of a  
A 
rover.
 
>From the Murray’s green  
E 
basin,
 
To the  
D 
dusty 
 
 
A 
outback,
 
I waltzed my  
E 
matilda all  
A 
over.
 
Then in  
E 
1915, my  
D 
country said  
A 
“son”
 
“It’s t
E 
ime to stop rambling,”
 
“Cos there’s  
D 
work to be
A 
done.”
 
So they gave me a  
D 
tin 
 
hat,
 
And they  
A 
gave me a gun,
 
And they sent me  
E 
away to the w
A 
ar.
 
And the band played  
D 
Waltzing 
 
 
A 
Matilda,
 
As we sailed  
D 
away from the  
E 
quay.
 
And  
D 
amidst all the tears,
 
And the s
A 
houts and the cheers,
 
We sailed off for  
E 
Galipol
A 
i
 
How well I  
D 
remember that  
A 
terrible 
 
day,
 
when the blood stained the  
E 
sand and the  
A 
water.
 
And how in that  
E 
hell
 
that they  
D 
cal
A 
led Souvla Bay
 
We were butchered like  
E 
lambs at the  
A 
slaughter.
 
Johnny  
E 
Turk, he was ready, He’
D 
d primed  
A 
himself 
 
well.
 
He  
E 
showered us with bullets,
 
And he  
D 
rained 
 
u
A 
s with shells.
 
And in five minutes  
D 
flat,
 
he’d blown  
A 
us all to hell.
 
Nearly blew us right  
E 
back to  
A 
Australia.
 
And the band played  
D 
Waltzing 
 
 
A 
Matilda,
 
As we stopped to bury our  
E 
slain.
 
And  
D 
we buried ours
 
and the  
A 
Turks buried theirs,
 
And it started all  
E 
over 
 
 
A 
again.
 
Now those who were  
D 
living, Did their  
A 
best to survive,
 
In that mad world of  
E 
guts, blood, and  
A 
fire.
 
And for seven long  
E 
weeks,
 
I  
D 
kept 
 
mys
A 
elf 
 
alive,
 
As the corpses ar
E 
ound me piled  
A 
higher.
 
Then a  
E 
big Turkish shell, Knocked me  
D 
arse over  
A 
tit.
 
And  
E 
when I awoke
 
in my ho
D 
spital 
 
 
A 
bed,
 
And saw what it had  
D 
done,
 
Christ I  
A 
wished I was dead.
 
Never knew there were  
E 
worse things than  
A 
dying.
 
And no more I’ll go  
D 
Waltzing 
 
 
A 
Matilda,
 
To the green bushes so far and  
E 
near.
 
For to  
D 
hang tent and pegs
 
A  
A 
man needs two legs.
 
No more Waltzing Mat
E 
ilda for  
A 
me.
 
So they collected the  
D 
crippled, The  
A 
wounded and maimed,
 
And they shipped us back  
E 
home to  
A 
Australia.
 
The legless, the  
E 
armless,
 
the  
D 
bli
A 
nd and insane.
 
Those proud wounded  
E 
heroes of  
A 
Souvla
 
And  
E 
as our ship pulled into  
D 
Circula
A 
 
Quay
 
I  
E 
looked at the place
 
where my l
D 
egs 
 
used
A 
to 
 
be.
 
And thank Christ, there was  
D 
nobody
A 
waiting for me,
 
To grieve and to  
E 
mourn and to  
A 
pity.
 
And the band played  
D 
Waltzing 
 
 
A 
Matilda,
 
As they carried us down the gang
E 
way.
 
But  
D 
nobody 
 
cheered,
 
They  
A 
just stood and stared,
 
And they turned their  
E 
faces 
 
 
A 
away.
 
And now every  
D 
April, I  
A 
sit on my porch,
 
And I watch the  
E 
parades pass  
A 
before 
 
me.
 
I see my old  
E 
comrades,
 
How  
D 
proudly 
 
the
A 
 
march.
 
Reliving the  
E 
dreams of past  
A 
glory.
 
I  
E 
see the old men, all t
D 
wisted and  
A 
torn.
 
The  
E 
forgotten 
 
heroes
 
of a  
D 
forgotten 
 
 
A 
war.
 
And the young people  
D 
ask 
 
me,
 
What are  
A 
they marching for?
 
And I ask my se
E 
lf the same  
A 
question.
 
And the band plays  
D 
Waltzing 
 
 
A 
Matilda,
 
And the old men still answer the  
E 
call.
 
But  
D 
year after year,
 
Their  
A 
numbers get fewer,
 
Someday no-one will  
E 
march there at  
A 
all.
 
A 
Waltzing Matilda,  
D 
Waltzing 
 
Matilda
A 
Who’ll come a waltzing matilda with  
E 
me?
