VERSE 1

A                C#m
Poor old Johnny Ray
        D                          A                 E
Sounded sad upon the radio moved a million hearts in mono
A
 Our mothers cried
D           D                 A   E
Sang along, who'd blame them
A                               C#m
You're grown (you're grown up), so grown (so grown up)
D                             A   E
Now I must say more than ever       (come on Eileen)
A           C#m           D
Toora-loora-toora-loo-rye-aye
           A                  E
And we can sing just like our fathers

At this moment you mean every - thing
     B                       F#
With you in that dress, my thoughts (I confess)
         C#m             E          F#
Verge on dirty, Ah come  on   Ei - leen

VERSE2

A                  C#m
These people round here
            D
Wear beaten-down eyes sunk in smoke-dried faces,
      A                    E
So resigned to what their fate is
    A                    C#m
But not us (no never) no not us (no never)
D                                A       E
we are far too young and clever             remember
A           C#m           D
Toora-loora-toora-loo-rye-aye
            A                 E
Eileen I'll hum this tune for ever

Ah come on let's take off every - thing
     
B                            F#
That pretty red dress, Ei - leen (tell him yes)
        C#m                E         F#
Ah come on let's, ah come  on   Ei - leen
     B                      F#
That pretty red dress, Ei - leen (tell him yes)

How you feel       Now I must say more than ever

 Things round here have changed

Too-ra loo-ra too-ra loo-rye-aye
