Over The Wall Irish song lyrics and guitar chords by The Dublin City Ramblers

In [G] Crumlin Road jail the [C] prisoners one day
Took [D] out a football and [G] started to play
And while all the warders were [C] watching the ball
[D] Nine of the prisoners jumped [C] over the [G] wall
 
[chorus]
Over the wall, over the wall
Who could believe they jumped over the wall
Over the wall, over the wall
It's hard to believe they jumped over the wall
 
Now the warders looked on with the greatest surprise
And the sight that they saw brought the tears to their eyes
For one of the teams was not there at all
They all got transferred and jumped over the wall
 
Now the governor's came down with his face in a twist
Said, "Line up these lads while I check out me list"
But nine of the lads didn't answer the call
And the warder said," Please, sir they're over the wall."
 
The security forces were shook to the core
So they barred every window and bolted each door
But all of their precautions were no use at all
For another three prisoners jumped over the wall
 
When the news reached old Stormont Faulkner turned pale
When he heard that more men had escaped from his jail.
Said he," Now we'll have an enquiry to call
And we'll get Edmund Compton to whitewash the wall."
