Chords
Transpose:
After seeing the other tab here was slightly off I felt compelled to submit my 
own. This is how i play the song and I'm fairly confident it's right. There might 
be an instrumental section I missed but who really cares?

Enjoy, Olly.

Oh kiss me Maggie & take me home,

For I sure dinnae feel like dyin’ alone,

Gawn geez a shot, chuck a doggie a bone,

Or a penny for me rattlin’ can,

But if you won’t have me, yer sister will,
D D D D D DI’ll cart me arse doon Surry Hills & call her out this evenin’,

D GGo on, go well, ye’re no catch o’ mine,
D E AYer clothes in rags, ye reek o’ fags & old green ginger wine,
D GMy sisters aye a leezie into the drinkin’, dogs & cards,
D A DMy poor departed Father couldn’t flog her at the yards,
D GI’m a man o’ some renown ‘Jack the Lad’ about the town,
D E AWe’ll share a plate of oysters, crack the neck o’ Billy Brown,
D G Sly grog & salty treats, I’ll not grant yer wish,
D A DI’m promised to the toll collector boy upon the bridge.

D GWhy wait until yer dancin’ shoes are scuffed and in the bin?
