Subject: RE: Chord Req: Paddy's Lamentation
Bm7
Well it's by the hush me boys
    A
And that's to mind your noise
      Bm       F#                         Bm7 F#
And listen to poor Paddy's sad narration
Bm7                                 A
I was by hunger pressed and in poverty distressed
      G             F#                      Bm7
So I took a thought I'd leave the Irish nation
Well I sold me horse and cow, my little pigs and sow
My fathers fatherland I then departed
And to my sweetheart Bid McGee, I'm afraid I'll never see
For I left her there that morning brokenhearted

(Chorus)
Bm7    G    F#
Here me boys, now take my advice
Bm         F#                            Bm7 F#
To America I'd have you's not be coming
Bm7                            A
There is nothing here but war, where the murderin' cannon roar
    G       F#                                 Bm7
And I wish I was at home in dear old Dublin.
