God Woman
Christy Moore
Dm   Am   Dm   Am

          Dm                      F                            Am
   She spent seven days creating the World, the Sun, the Moon and Stars
             Dm                         Am
   And the Plough and the Milky-Way and Jupiter and Mars
       Dm                               F                   Am
   And she opened her ribcage. Then she pulled out a little man.
       Dm                                                      Am   
   She put him down on the plains of Kildare and the human race began
F                            Am
   Go forth said she and multiply God man and I will by God.
       Dm                                  F                   Am
   What better place to begin the race than below in the yellow Bog*

       Dm         Am         Dm    F   Am
          God Woman, God Woman, God Woman, God Woman

   Dm                            F            Am
   Down by the edge of Clongorey he built a holy cell
            Dm                              Am
   Where he knelt to contemplate heaven and drink from St. Brigids well.
       Dm                                    F                Am
   And then he went to the mission fields of Raheens and Ballitore
          Dm                                    Am
   And he sailed on down the Grand Canal to the town of Lollymore.
      F                                        Am
   Where he went breaking up the Bordellos, and smashing the poitín stills.
      Dm                      F                Am
   Introducing the word of God around the furry hills
