[Verse 1]
GThey laid out the body
C GIn that peaceful pagan home
Em CTo pay their last respects
G D CAll the neighbours came along
GIn the wee hours of the morning
C GPagan words from a whisky still
Em CFall in from the bushes
G D CSworn enemies are friends again
GSomeone spilt Porter on the corpse
C GIn the middle of a song
Em CAnd the stories kept on coming back
G D CFrom 1941
[Chorus]
C G DSail on, sail on Jimmy
C G DSail on, Jimmy boy
C G DSail on, sail on Jimmy
C D GFrom this Irish Pagan ritual
[Verse 2]
GMad Mary from the crossroads
C GGrabbed my arse for all to see
Em CI'll tell your fortune Scoby
G D CIf you come on home with me
GIn the name of God now Mary
