Verse 1
                        AM
Throught the eyes of an innocent child
                   Fmaj7
Can't hide what is burning inside
                  AM
The shame and the guilt of disgrace
                   Fmaj7
 They said she had fallen from grace
                 DM 
To the arms of a train engineer
                     AM
Who escaped when the verdict was clear
                EM
And saw she was quietly installed
                AM
in the Magdalen Laundry

Chorus
   Fmaj7        C
And oh you can find them there
DM                      G
Slaving each day in the heat and the steam
  Fmaj7      C
And oh every bloody stain
        DM          
Will be carefully scrubbed
                          G
'Till it's white and it's clean

Verse 2
                AM
The Sisters got angry today
                  Fmaj7
 They took Bridie Power away
                  AM
They said she had broken the rules
                   Fmaj7
She swore that the priest
 
from the school...
               DM
If only they'd asked why she cried
                    AM
They said they'd concluded she'd lied
                    EM
 The priest had his own alibi
                AM
In the Magdalen Laundry

Chorus

Bridge
Fmaj7                   C             G
A world set apart by magnolia walls
Fmaj7
And it's hard to believe
          C                  G
That this happened at all
Fmaj7               C                  G 
Pray the meek shall inhert this heart

Verse 3
               AM
The Sisters of Mercy still live
                  Fmaj7
In the convent on top of the hill
                 AM 
The walls of the laundries came down
               Fmaj7
Exposing their sins to the town
                  DM
The ghosts of the girls who had died
                 AM
The souls of the ones who survived
           EM
Echo their protest inside
             AM
The Magdalen Laundry
