  I figured this song out the other day I believe it is correct. it is an old irish folk song


Em G D come Irish men both young and old
Em D with adventure in your soul
Em G D there are better ways to spend your days
Em D Em than tiolen down a hole
(chorus)
G D I was tall and true all of six foot two
Em D Em till they broke me across the back
Em G D By a name I'm known it's not my own
Em D Em they call me crooked jack
(second verse)
Em G D the blue eyed gangers pet was I
Em D Big Jack could do no wrong
Em G D the reason simply was because
Em D Em I could work hard hours and long
(chorus) (third verse) I've seen men old before their time their faces dark and gray I never thought that I myself Would soon be the self same way (Chorus) (third verse) I cursed the day I went away To work on those Hydro dams for sweat and tears or hope and fear bound up a shuddering jams (chorus) (final verse) they say that honest toil is good for the body and the soul but I tell you boys it's blood and sweat that they want you down a hole.
