The Boys From Tandragee Lyrics and chords as used on Colum Sands’ album ‚All My Winding Journey’ with capo on 4th fret, an Irish fok song. Guitar chords Marc Fahrbach. 4/4

Intro: Am-Am-Am-Am  G-G-G-G   Am-Am-Am-Am   G-G-Am-Am (2x)

 

Good (Am)luck to you all now barring the cat
That (G)sits in the corner a smelling the rat
Ah (Am)whisht you philandering girls and behave
And (G)saving your presence I'll (Am)chant you a stave –Am-Am
I (Am)come from a land where the praties grow big
And the (G)girls neat and handy can dance a fine jig
And the (Am)boys they would charm your heart for to see
They're (G)wonderfull fellas round (Am)Tandragee

Chorus
(Am)Here's to the boys that are happy and gay
(G)Singing an dancing and tearing away
(Am)Rollicksome frollicksome frisky and free
We're the (G)rollicking boys around (Am)Tandragee –Am-Am

The (Am)oul jaunting car is the elegant joult
And (G)Derry's the place that is famed for the hoult
A(Am)mong the green bushes that grow in Tyrone
And (G)County Fermanagh for (Am)muscle and bone –Am-Am
For (Am)feasting and brarney and fun at the fair
There's (G)none to compare with the Rakes of Kildare
Green (Am)Erin my country's the gem of the see
But the (G)gem of oul Ireland is (Am)Tandragee

Chorus

No (Am)doubt you have heard of Killarney I'm sure
And (G)sweet Inishowen for the drop of the pure
(Am)Dublin's the place for the Strawberry Beds
And (G)Donnybrook Fair for the (Am)cracking of heads –Am-Am
Did you (Am)ere see an Irishman dancing poltog
How he (G)faces his partner and turn up his brog
He (Am)shakes at the buckle and bends at the knee
(G)Wonderfull dancers in (Am)Tandragee

Am-Am-Am-Am  G-G-G-G   Am-Am-Am-Am   G-G-Am-Am


Now (Am)where is the man either Christian or Turk
To (G)equal the bold Robert Emmet or Burke
(Am)Where is the lawyer could speak up like Dan
There's (G)devil another bad (Am)luck to the one –Am-Am
And (G)where is the singer could sing like Tom Moore
Whose (am)melodies charm every care from your door
We'll (Am)beat them all yet boys and that you will see
Sure we're (G)rearing fine fellas round (Am)Tandragee

Chorus
