I can't promise that these are the same chords as on the record, but they work, in the key of C:

On (G7)Mother Kelly's (F)door(G7)step,
Down Paradise (C)Row.
I'd (G7)sit alonga Nellie,
She'd sit alonga (C)Joe.
She (F)had a (G7)little (Am)hole in her frock, (Em)hole in her shoe,
(F)Hole in her sock where her (C)toe peeped through,
But (D7)Nellie was the smartest down our (G7)alley.

On Mother Kelly's (F)door(G7)step,
I'm wondering (C)now
If (G7)little gal Nellie
Remembers (C)Joe, her beau,
And (F)does (G7)she (Am)love me (G7)like she (C)used to
On (G7)Mother Kelly's (F)door(G7)step,
Down Paradise (C)Row?

Interesting name,that---"Widowmaker".   That's what the F104 Lockheed "Starfighter" was known as in service with the German Air Force in the 1960s (with good reason !!). Sorry !

The sheet music can be seen at The National Library of Australia:


ON MOTHER KELLY'S DOORSTEP
Words and music by George A. Stevens
Sydney: Francis, Day & Hunter, Ltd., 1925.

1. I've just been lingering all alone down Paradise Row.
When I was a kiddie, I'd a sweetheart, and down there we would go.
I'd call her Nelly, and she'd call me Joe, and we would romp there hand in hand.
Then we'd both sit down on a doorstep there and we'd picture the future grand.

CHORUS: On Mother Kelly's doorstep, down Paradise Row,
I'd sit along o' Nelly; she'd sit along o' Joe.
She'd got a little hole in her frock, hole in her shoe,
Hole in her sock where her toe peeped through,
But Nelly was the smartest down our alley.
On Mother Kelly's doorstep, I'm wondering now
If li'l gal Nelly remembers Joe, her beau,
And does she love me like she used to,
On Mother Kelly's doorstep down Paradise Row?

2. The cobblestones were a meadow sweet to Nelly and me.
The smoky chimney on the housetop was a beautiful tree,
And old Brown's donkey was a big baa-lamb, and Mother Kelly in the house,
On a washday holding her pail, was Mary the milkmaid milking cows.
