The Irish Navy Lyrics And Chords. 6/8 From what I heard Ronnie Drew And Luke Kelly wrote this song. It's an old one and a bit outdated to the fact that the three vessel mentioned in the song were decommissioned and scrapped decades ago (and there probably won't be a Russian invader anymore...). A more up-to-date version could therefore for example use the names: The Emer, LÉ Niamh and LÉ Róisín which are all ships in active service of the Irish Fleet (although Emer is also to be replaced within several years by a new ship). Notes and guitar chords by Marc Fahrbach

Chorus

The (G)Clíona, the Meabh and the (D)Mucha

The (G)pride of the Irish na(C)vy

When the (G)Captain he blows on his (D)whistle

All the sailors go home for their (G)tea

 

While the (G)army is off in the (D)Kongo

In (G)Cyprus or some foreign (C)parts

Our (G)navy is strained to the (D)limits

Deploying its nautical (G)acts

One day from the Russian in(D)vader

De(G)fending our very odd (C)fish

We (G)found it was just the red (D)herring

From the signals we got from the (G)cis'

 

Chorus

 

Each (G)year they go on man(D)oeuvres

To pre(G)pare for defence they are (C)keen

Some(G)times it's the Lakes of Kill(D)arney

More often the pond in the (G)Green

The canal it could be of as(D)sistance

In de(G)fending our own holy (C)ground

But (G)due to proposed legis(D)lation

We'll have to sail all the way (G)round

 

Chorus

 

We (G)are a seafaring (D)nation

De(G)fence of our land is a (C)right

We'd (G)fight like the devil all (D)morning

Provided we're home by the (G)night

 

Chorus
