Never Marry Into Land, Irish country song lyrics by Seamus Moore. Guitar chords by Angla in the key of C Major.

I (C) married into a farm of land 'twas (G) 40 years (C) ago,
The greatest mistake I (G) ever made and (F) I'll tell you why (C) so,
I am all strained and torn from (F) working night and (G)day.
The (C) wife's the full boss (F) all the time and I (G) haven't a word to (C) say.


Don't ever marry into land I'm (F) going to tell you (C) why
You (G) think some day you'll be the boss but you're (F) only a servant (C) boy,
And if you do you'll suffer - you'll  (F) really carry a (C) cross,
For when you marry (F) into land the (G) wife's always the (C) boss.


Every morning at 6 o'clock and I'm (G) panned out on the (C) bed,
The way she'll get me  (G)out of it is a (F) belt across the (C) head,
Get up she roars, let out the ducks and (F) feed the pigs and (G) sows
Put (C) down the fire, clean (F) up the house and (G) then go for the (C) cows.
To make me life more awkward, the (F) milking machine she's (C) banned,
I have to face the (F) 20 cows and (G) milk them all by (C) hand.


Don't ever marry into land I'm (F) going to tell you (C) why
You (G) think some day you'll be the boss but you're (F) only a servant (C) boy,
And if you do you'll suffer - you'll  (F) really carry a (C) cross,
For when you marry (F) into land the (G) wife's always the (C) boss.


Me marriage was a sentance and (G) I'm serving me (C) time,
40 years hard (G) labour with-(F)-out commiting a (C) crime,
I might be better spending 30 (F) years up in Mount-(G)-joy,
But (C) instead I married (F) into land and I'm (G) only a servant (C) boy.


Don't ever marry into land I'm (F) going to tell you (C) why
You (G) think some day you'll be the boss but you're (F) only a servant (C) boy,
And if you do you'll suffer - you'll  (F) really carry a (C) cross,
For when you marry (F) into land the (G) wife's always the (C) boss.


I'd a dream of being a farmer but (G) all I am is a (C) slave,
I'll have no rest from (G) slavery un-(F)-til I'm in me (C) grave
And when I die if there's justice it is (F) straight up I'll (G) go,
And (C) look down on the (F) misses and she's (G) scorching down be-(C)-low


Don't ever marry into land I'm (F) going to tell you (C) why
You (G) think some day you'll be the boss but you're (F) only a servant (C) boy,
And if you do you'll suffer - you'll  (F) really carry a (C) cross,
For when you marry (F) into land the (G) wife's always the (C) boss.
