Thread Name: Origins: Why Paddy isn't at work today
Subject: Chords Add: WHY PADDY'S NOT AT WORK TODAY
Why doesn't everybody adopt the convention of putting the chords in brackets within the lyrics. ?

Joe Offer is the only person who can do it correctly the other way .


Dear(C) Sir I write this (G)note to in(F)form you of my (C) plight
   
And (F) at the time of(C) writing I am (D7) not a pretty (G) sight

My(F)body is all (C) black and blue, my (Dm) face a deathly (F) grey

I (C)write this note to (G) tell why Paddy's (F) not at work to(C)day

These are the definitive chords, assuming you are singing in the key of C.
