Dublin Town In 1962 Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords by Dermot O'Brien, Irish folk. The Metropole was a hotel in O'Connell Street where Eason's book shop is now. There used to be dances in Clery's Shop many years before my time. The Hill Of Howth is an area about 9 miles from the centre of Dublin and was very popular as a day out on a Sunday afternoon before shopping centres came to Ireland. The Pillar is a reference to Nelson's Pillar which was on O'Connell Street before it was blown up in 1966.

Well[A] my kids say da just[E] tell us one more[A] time,
[D]About when you were[A] young and in you[E]r prime,
And the way that you met[A] ma,and every[D]thing you [A]saw,
And[E] tell us of the things you used to[A] do.
[2]
So I closed my eyes and rolled the years away,
And everything's as clear as yesterday,
For how could I forget,that summer when we met,
It was Dublin town in 1962,
[Chorus]
All[E] our days were[A] sunny,[D]all our sky's were[A] blue,
In[D] Dublin town in [E]196[A]2.
[3]
We climed the hill of Howth and down again,
Walked home from the piller in the rain
We courted in the park,while the lights glowed in the dark,
Danced in Cleary's and the Metrapole till two.
[4]
We crossed the Half penny bridge at evening time,
It felt so good to have you by my side,
We watched the Mail boat sail,paper bob's cried Hearld or Mail
It was Dublin town in 1962.
[5]
Like many more we kissed it all good bye,
And sailed away to give our luck a try,
In that land accross the sea,thats been good to you and me,
Where our children played as we once used to do
[6]
Well my kids say da thats really quiet a tale
We can see you have the spirit of the gale
And we know you've no regrets,and we're very glad you met,
In Dublin town in 1962

Dublin Town In Nineteen Sixty Two Lyrics
 
Well my kids say da just tell us one more time,
About when you were young and in your prime,
And the way that you met ma,and everything you saw,
And tell us of the things you used to do.
[2]
So I closed my eyes and rolled the years away,
And everything's as clear as yesterday,
For how could I forget,that summer when we met,
It was Dublin town in 1962,
[Chorus]
All[E] our days were[A] sunny,[D]all our sky's were[A] blue,
In[D] Dublin town in [E]196[A]2.
[3]
We climed the hill of Howth and down again,
Walked home from the piller in the rain
We courted in the park,while the lights glowed in the dark,
Danced in Cleary's and the Metrapole till two.
[4]
We crossed the Half penny bridge at evening time,
It felt so good to have you by my side,
We watched the Mail boat sail,paper boy's cried Hearld or Mail
It was Dublin town in 1962.
[5]
Like many more we kissed it all good bye,
And sailed away to give our luck a try,
In that land accross the sea,thats been good to you and me,
Where our children played as we once used to do
[6]
Well my kids say da thats really quiet a tale
We can see you have the spirit of the gale
And we know you've no regrets,and we're very glad you met,
In Dublin town in 1962
