Mc[C]Cormack and Richard [Dm] Tauber Are [C] singing by the [Dm] bed. There's a [C] glass of punch be[Dm]low your feet And an [F] angel at your [C] head. There's [C] devils on each [Dm] side of you With [C] bottles in their [Dm] hands. You need [C] one more drop of [Dm] poison And you'll [Am] dream of foreign [Am] lands. When you [F] pissed yourself in [Bb] Frankfurt And got [C] syph down in Co[F]logne And you [F] heard the rattling [Bb] death trains As you [C] lay there all a[F]lone, Frank [F] Ryan brought you [C] whiskey In a [Bb] brothel in Ma[C]drid And you [Bb] decked some fucking [Bb] blackshirt Who was [C] cursing all the [C] Yids. At the [F] sick bed of Cu[F]chulainn We'll [Bb] kneel and say a [F] prayer And the [Bb] ghosts are rattling [F] at the door And the [C] devil's in the [F] chair. [F] [F] [Bb] [C] [F] [F] [Bb] [F] And [F] in the Euston [Bb] Tavern You [C] screamed it was your [F] shout But they [F] wouldn't give you [Bb] service So you [C] kicked the windows [F] out. They [F] took you out in[C]to the street And [Bb] kicked you in the [C] brains, So you [Bb] walked back in through a [Bb] bolted door And [C] did it all a[C]gain. At the [F] sick bed of Cu[F]chulainn We'll [Bb] kneel and say a [F] prayer And the [Bb] ghosts are rattling [F] at the door And the [C] devil's in the [F] chair.

[C] You re[C]member that foul [Dm] evening When you [C] heard the banshees [Dm] howl, There was [C] lazy drunken [Dm] bastards Singing [F] 'Billy is in the [C] bowl.' They [C] took you up to [Dm] midnight mass And [C] left you in the [Dm] lurch So you [C] dropped a button [Dm] in the plate And [Am] spewed up in the [Am] church. Now you'll [F] sing a song of [Bb] liberty For [C] blacks and paks and [F] jocks And they'll [F] take you from this [Bb] dump you're in And [C] stick you in a [F] box. Then they'll [F] take you to Clough[C]prior And [Bb] shove you in the [C] ground But you'll [Bb] stick your head back [Bb] out and shout, "We'll [C] have another [C] round." At the [F] graveside of Cu[F]chulainn We'll [Bb] kneel around and [F] pray And [Bb] God is in His [F] heaven, And [C] Billy's down by the [F] bay.
