Intro: |C G Am F| 6x




C GI'm an Irishman
AmLeather weathered Irish skin
F Beard orange as the sunset over the flag
CIn the night sky we fly it in
GPride for the life we fight to live
AmHistory, I write with it
AmSpit it with the dialect
CAnd this is a celebration of course
GThe green, white, orange
AmAnd when they pulled up on that shore
FFirst generation born
CToast to those that made it on a boat to New York
GAnd when the English came the colonizer came
AmThey filled up bottles of gasoline, turned 'em into balls of flame
FAnd hurled 'em to protect what's ours
CDon't touch these lucky charms
GWhole bunch of Irish screaming "Fuck the London Guard"
AmI'm kidding not dissin' London, this bloody war
FBut go against the Irish and get a bloody jaw
CPreaching nonviolence but reminds of the scars
GAnd the bias, put a pint up everybody sing a song
Chorus:
CWe put our glass to the sky and lift up
AmAnd live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya
FSo raise a pint for the people that aren't with us
AmAnd live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya
Same the rest of the time We put our glass to the sky and lift up And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya So raise a pint for the people that aren't with us And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya From New England to New Brunswick Galway to Dublin A rebellious nation of freckled face hustlers Heart, blue collared workers and family My heritage, proud to be a Haggerty Now with whiskey in our veins Claiming were the bravest men I drank Old Crow, but pretended it was Jameson Dad sipped Guiness, I sipped Old English 'Til he sat me down at 16 and said "boy, this is what a beer is" I put down the drink, couldn't drink like a gentleman That doesn't mean I can't make a drinking song for the rest of 'em Challenge us in football, yeah we might lose But don't put us next to a bar stool We take the history, script it in song Light the torch then you pass it on That's right I said, lineage through the rhythm we script it from the palm and we give til' Ireland is on Bottoms Up We put our glass to the sky and lift up And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya So raise a pint for the people that aren't with us And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya We put our glass to the sky and lift up And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya So raise a pint for the people that aren't with us And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya
