Luck Of The Irish

Intro: G

G               C	          G
If you had the luck of the Irish
          Bm                      D7
You'd be sorry and wish you were dead
            G         C          G
You should have the luck of the Irish
           Bm           D7         G    
And you'd wish you was English instead

G                   C	          G
A thousand years of torture and hunger
          Bm                      D7
Drove the people away from their land
   G           C          G
A land full of beauty and wonder
    Bm           D7          G      C   G    C   G
Was raped by the British brigands - goddamn, goddamn

G               C	          G
If you could keep voices like flowers, 
          Bm                      D7
there'd be shamrock all over the world
            G         C          G
If you could drink dreams like Irish streams
           Bm            D7         G    
Then the world would be high as the Mountains of Mourne

G                 C	          G
In the 'Pool they told us the story
          Bm                 D7
How the English divided the land
         G         C            G 
of the pain, the death and the glory
           Bm           D7         G    
And the poets of old Ireland

G                 C	          G
If we could make chains with the morning dew, 
      Bm                      D7
the world would be like Galway Bay
        G         C          G
Let's walk over rainbows like leprechauns, 
     Bm            D7         G    
the world would be one big Blarney stone


G                  C	           G
Why the hell are the English there anyway?
        Bm                      D7
As they kill with God on their side
          G         C            G
Blame it all on the kids and the IRA
        Bm      D7        G        C   G    C    G
As the bastards commit genocide - aye, aye, genocide

G               C	          G
If you had the luck of the Irish
          Bm                      D7
You'd be sorry and wish you were dead
            G         C          G
You should have the luck of the Irish
           Bm           D7         G    
And you'd wish you was English instead
            Bm           D7         G    
Yes, you’d wish you was English instead
