HI Folks

Would appreciate it if anyone could help me out with the lyrics of 'Hand Me Down The/My Bible'. I've heard it sung by Luke Kelly. Also chords would be a help, but I'd be happy with the lyrics.

Thanks

Mj

Mj,
Here's some for you....don't know how accurate they are though!


HAND ME DOWN ME BIBLE
(Traditional)

Introduction:
You know, it's a very surprising thing that, you know
People who not so long ago seem to be enemies
And now seemingly friends
And we'd like to dedicate this to our great friend
Mister or to Doctor, Sir Ian....
Ah, I won't, I won't complete the name, you know who he is
It's called, 'Hand me down me catechism'

Come on,
Oho, glory o now I am a Lord's disciple
Let's hear you sing it
Oho, glory o hand me down me bible

I like my liquor and my living part
May the Lord save my soul
My salvation was the turn of the card
My heart is as black as coal
But everybody's got the right to go wrong
Everybody's got to sing my song
Everybody's got the right to go wrong
Sing my song, sing my song

Oho, glory o now I am a Lord's disciple
Can't hear you singing
Oho, glory o hand me down me bible

Oho, glory o now I am a Lord's disciple
Oho, glory o hand me down me bible

I don't give a damn for any man
As all the world can see
Time has come to make a song
O to shine your light on me
Come on people let your life begin
Come on now let the sunshine in
Come on people let your life begin
Let it in, let it in

Oho, glory o now I am a Lord's disciple
Oho, glory o hand me down me bible
Oho, glory o now I am a Lord's disciple
Everybody

Oho, glory o hand me down me bible

Oho, glory o now I am a Lord's disciple
Let's hear you singing
Oho, glory o hand me down me bible



best wishes, Yvonne


Lyrics now in the Digital Tradition (but a slightly different version)

Hi! I would say you can play the refrain like: D-A-G-D; D-A-G----D , but I`ll check it later with my guitar. For now, Gunnar

Oho glory-o, now I am the Lord's disciple
Oho glory-o, now hand me down my bible

I like my liquor and my livin' hard
May the Lord save my soul
My salvation was the turn of a card
My heart's as black as coal
But everybody's got the right to go wrong
Everybody's got to sing my song
Everybody's got the right to go wrong
Sing my song, sing my song


If anyone has the chords, this'll save you lookin' for lyrics. There are other verses, but I expect the repaet the melody line. I'll keep searching.

The Dubliners sing HAND ME DOWN MY BIBLE on "The Best of the Dubliners," Culture Club CD #1855, 2000. There, it's attributed to "Phil Coulter/Martin". Allmusic.com has a sound sample. Probably other sites do, too. I'd check Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Barnes & Noble, Yahoo! Shopping > Music.
