Cricklewood Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords Christy Moore. First recorded by The Grehan Sisters from Boyle Co. Roscommon around 1966 when they played the pubs and clubs around London and the south of England. There's not many of their recordings around anymore but they played a big part in the ballad scene along with The Dubliners at the time. I have included a video of The Dubliners ''O'Donohues Opera'' where you can hear The Grehan Sisters sing The Merry Ploughboy at time-frame 2.40 . This is only to give you an idea of how good of singers they really were.

Come [C]all you true born [F]Irishmen
And [C]listen to my [G]song
I [C]am a bold buck [F]navy
And I [C]don’t know [G]right from [C]wrong

Of [C]late I was trans[F]ported boys
From [C]Eiren’s holy [G]shore
My [C]case is sad my [F]crime is bad
For [C]I was [G]born [C]poor

Chorus
Oh [C]Cricklewood Oh [F]Cricklewood
You [C]stole my youth a[G]way
For [C]I was young and [F]innocent
And [C]you were [G]old and [C]grey


[C]If you’re born [F]poor me Boys
It [C]is an awful [G]state
The [C]judge will sit u[F]pon yer crime
And [C]this he [G]will re[C]late


I [C]find the prisoner [F]guilty

And the [C]law I must lay [G]down
[C]Let this man be trans[F]ported straight

A[C]way to [G]Camden [C]town

Chorus

Then [C]take him down to [F]Cricklewood
And [C]place him in the [G]pub
And [C]call the limey [F]Governer
To [C]force him [G]for his [C]sup


Then [C]take him down to [F]Cricklewood
To [C]morter grease and [G]lime
And [C]let him rot in [F]Cricklewood

U[C]ntil he’s [G]served his [C]time.

 

Chorus twice
