 Chorus (No chords first time):

   D                 G            D
 A row, a ruction, a fracas, an affray
   G                D
 A rough and tumble free-for-all
   A       
 A broil, A brawl,A melee,
   D                              G             D
 A ruckus to be reckoned with and now without delay
       G                      D 
 We're taking the road to the Dodder on down
    A                 D
 To march in the last parade

 A row, a ruction, a fracas, an affray
 A rough and tumble free-for-all
 A broil, A brawl, A melee,
 A ruckus to be reckoned with if anyone wants to dare
 We're taking the road to the Dodder on down
 For the Donnybrook affair. 

 G          C               G
 I will go, I will meet you there
 C              G                D
 I will spend a week or two with you at Donnybrook Fair
 G          C               G
 I will go, I will meet you there
         C               G
 But the council's up in arms,
             D               G
 They aim to take it away, I swear!
     C               G
 The council's up in arms
             D               G
 They aim to take it away, I swear.

  (D)
 A license for leisure,
 Whatever be the pleasure,
 The council's always up in arms
 To try and take it away, hey!

 Break 1: D 

 D             
 Play the harp and play the fiddle,
 G                D
 Play the whistle too, 
 G                 D
 Bang the drum and use the lungs
    A      
 To get the message through
         D                    
 But you fight, you might get tar-and-feathered,
     G             D
 So, bow and say a prayer,
        G                  D
 To the Commission for the Abolition
 A                 D
 Of the Donnybrook Fair.

 Chorus

 I will go, I will meet you there
 I will spend a week or two with you at Donnybrook Fair
 I will go, I will meet you there
 But the council's up in arms
 They aim to take it away, I swear
 The council's up in arms
 They aim to take it away, I swear

 A license for leisure,
 Whatever be the pleasure,
 The council's always up in arms
 To try and take it away, hey!

 Chorus X2

 I will go, I will meet you there
 I will spend a week or two with you at Donnybrook Fair
 I will go, I will meet you there
 But the council's up in arms
 And they aim to take it away, I swear

 I will go, I will meet you there
 I will spend a week or two with you at Donnybrook Fair
 I will go, I will meet you there
 But the council's up in arms
 They aim to take it away, I swear
 The council's up in arms
 They aim to take it away, I swear
 The council's always up in arms
 To try and take it away, hey!
