Thread Name: Origins: Why Paddy isn't at work today
Subject: Chords Add: WHY PADDY'S NOT AT WORK TODAY
It's clear that Leadfingers and I have a different conception of the tune, because I cannot make at least certain of his chords work with this song as I sing it. So here's MY take, which is simpler than his:

    C                         F             C
Dear Sir I write this note to inform you of my plight
    F             C             G7
And at the time of writing I am not a pretty sight
    F          C                  G7
My body is all black and blue, my face a deathly gray
C                                  F          C
I write this note to tell why Paddy's not at work today
