MY OLD MAN

[CHORUS]
Well, [G] my old man's a Provo with a beret and a [D] gun.
I haven't seen him lately. He's always on the [G] run.
He looks so really trendy in his shades and DM [C] boots,
Much [G] better than those other dads in [D] ties and shirts and [G] suits.

The police are aye hassling me each time that I go out.
They ask me if I've seen him and if he's been about.
I say, "Mind your own business and just leave me alone.
You shower of holy gibbons, have ye no fathers of your own?"

On RTE last Friday night, a man came on to say,
"Please give us information about the IRA".
He showed a Provo unit as clear as clear could be,
And I know one was me daddy 'cause he stopped and waved at me!

My da, he's got me worried. I think he's going soft.
There's half a tonne of fertiliser stored up in our loft.
"You gonna be a farmer, da?" I asked him just for fun.
He says, "Don't be an eejit. Pass the coffee grinder, son."

At Christmas time, it's lonely when Daddy's not around.
The police are watching everywhere. They've even tapped our phones.
Last Christmas Eve, they staked out our windows and our doors,
Then climbing down the chimney came a Provo Santa Claus.

My Daddy's up in Long Kesh now. To me it's just a drive.
I'll say a special prayer for him when I go to bed tonight.
Today it was his birthday. I sent him up a cake.
There's Semtex in the candles. He'll be out before I wake!

A friend recently told me a variation of line 4
"Not like them Sinn Fein bastards in their oul' Armani suits".
Which leads to a discussion of that organization and into serious BS territory.

A few of the lyrics are wrong I think ..unless I have been listening to a different version.
instead of the thing about gibbons its "you sure are only jelous"
and in the last verse instead of to me its just a drive its"and its just not right"

anyway cheers for the chords mate
