Good morning (or whatever it is wherever you all happen to be), I was wondering if anyone could help me, my girlfriend wants me to learn a song called "Master Mcgraw" by the Clancy brothers and I have no idea what the chords are to it. Sorry to disturb you. Much Thanks Ryan

Eighteen sixty-nine being the date of the year

The Waterloo sportsmen they all did appear

C F C
To win the great prize and to bear it away

G7 C
Never counting on Ireland and Master McGrath.
And when they arrived there in big London town
The great English sportsmen they all gathered round
One of the gentlemen gave a ha-ha
Is this the great dog you call Master McGrath?

Lord Lurgan stepped forward and he said, "Gentlemen,
If there is any among you have money to spend,
For your great English greyhound I don't care a straw.
Five thousand to one upon Master McGrath."

White Rose stood uncovered the great English pride.
Her trainer and owner were both by her side.
They led her away and the crowd cried, "Hurrah!
For the pride of all England and Master McGrath,"

As Rose and the Master they both ran along,
"I wonder," said Rose, "what took you from your home.
You should have stayed there in your Irish domain
And not come to gain laurels on Albion's Plains."

"I know," said McGrath, "we have wild heather bogs
But you'll find in old Ireland we have good men and dogs.
Lead on, bold Britannia! Give none of your jaw.
Stuff that up your nostrils," said Master McGrath

The hare she led on what a beautiful view
As swift as the wind o'er the green fields she flew.
He jumped on her back and he held up his paw.
"Three cheers for old Ireland," said Master McGrath.

I've known many greyhounds that filled me with pride
In the days that are gone and it can't be denied,
But the greatest and bravest the world ever saw
Was our champion of champions, brave Master McGrath.


From the Clancy Bros Songbook.

My mother, being from Armagh, claims the hound was named after my great-great uncle, who was my great grandmother's twin brother. The story my mother told is that he was a compulsive gambler who left teaching (teachers were always addressed as "Master") to follow Lord Lurgen and the hounds. There upon Lord Lurgen named the hound after him. My mother, having been raised by her grandmother, said she wouldn't even let a deck of cards in the house because of his addiction.

But anyway, mother used to sing another song. The only words I can remember are: "She'll have pubs in the morning said Master McGraw." Does anyone out there have any knowledge of this one?

Thanks
