Intro Verse: (clean)
    B                                   G#
Tim Finnegan lived in Watling Street, a gentle Irishman - Mighty odd 
       e
He'd a beautiful brogue so rich and sweet, 
   B                     f#
To rise in the world, he carried a hod, 
    B
You see he'd sort of a Trippling way: 
     G#
With love for a liquor poor Tim was born, 
   e         
To help him on with his work each day, 
       B                    f#            B
He'd a drop of the Craythor every morn'...
