Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
After seeing the other tab here was slightly off I felt compelled to submit my 
own. This is how i play the song and I'm fairly confident it's right. There might 
be an instrumental section I missed but who really cares?

Enjoy, Olly.

N.C.
Oh kiss me Maggie & take me home,

For I sure dinnae feel like dyin’ alone,

Gawn geez a shot, chuck a doggie a bone,

Or a penny for me rattlin’ can,

   D(let ring)
As sure as Christ it’s a bitter pill,


But if you won’t have me, yer sister will,

     D                 D             D        D        D D
I’ll cart me arse doon Surry Hills & call her out this evenin’,

We’ll share a plate of oysters, crack the neck o’ Billy Brown,

I’ll stitch my holey duds, scrape the whiskers from me chin,
