Dubliners - Quare Bungle Rye chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
  An old tune a crazy aunt used to sing to us as kids in Ireland,
  many many moons ago.
  
  Also am guessing this will be one of the least searched for songs
  on UG, but since there's not another version on here, thought I'd
  put up how I play it.

  Stick a capo on most any fret to bring it in the key for your voice

  And as always ...... any mistakes are mine

  Now Jack was a sailor that roamed round the town
       F          C           F            G
  And she was a damsel who skipped up and down
             C         G       C             G
  Said the damsel to Jack, As she passed him by

  To get  the child christened, To the parson he went
             C        G              C         G
  Said the parson to Jack, Now what will he go by
