The Irish Washerwoman chords (for the acoustic guitar)
Traditional Irish Jig (words by George Colman the Elder The Surrender of Calais 1791)

Am D G

GWhen I was at home, I was merry and frisky.
Am DMy dad kept a pig, but my mother sold whiskey.
G My uncle was rich, but ne er could be easy,
Am D Gtill I was enlisted by Corporal Casey.
GOch, rub-a-dub, row-de-dow, Corporal Casey,
Am Dmy dear little Shelah I thought would run crazy
GWhen I trudged away with tough Corporal Casey,
Am D GOch, rub-a-dub row-de-row, Shelah my love.
GI marched from Kilkenny, but as I was thinking,
Don Shelah, my heart in my bosom was sinking.
C G Am GBut soon I was forced to look fresh as a daisy,
Am D Gfor fear of a drubbin from Corporal Casey.
GOch, rub-a-dub, row-de-dow, Corporal Casey,
Dthe devil go with him, I ne er could be lazy
C G Am GHe struck my shirts so, old Corporal Casey,
Am D Goch, rub-a-dub row-de-row, Shelah my dear.
GWe went into battle, I took the blows fairly,
Am Dthat fell on my pate, but they bothered me rarely.
G And who should the first be that dropped? Why, and please you,
Am D Git was my good friend, honest Corporal Casey.
GOch, rub-a-dub, row-de-dow, Corporal Casey,
Am Dthinks I, You are quiet and I shall be easy.
GSo eight years I fought without Corporal Casey,
Am D GOch, rub-a-dub row-de-row, Shelah my gal.
GI marched from Kilkenny, but as I was thinking,
Don Shelah, my heart in my bosom was sinking.
C G Am GBut soon I was forced to look fresh as a daisy,
Am D Gfor fear of a drubbin from Corporal Casey.
GOch, rub-a-dub, row-de-dow, Corporal Casey,
Dthe devil go with him, I ne er could be lazy
C G Am GHe struck my shirts so, old Corporal Casey,
Am D Goch, rub-a-dub row-de-row, Shelah my dear.
