P.A.D.D.Y Lyrics And Guitar Chords, written and performed by Gerry Carney. Every now and then a song comes along that strikes a chord, [An Emotional Response] and this song is one of them,A beautiful song Gerry and well sung. I have included the lyrics without the chords [which are by Marc Fahrbach] for the non guitar players.

Intro: C-G-C-G 2x

 

From his (C)window he watches as people

They come and go on their (G)way

Rushing to catch the train homeward

As he often (G7)did in his (C)day -G

He (C)remembers the dark of the mornings

And the days he worked in the (G)rain

The good times, the bad times and the friends that he knew

He'll never see them a(C)gain. -G

 

At (C)nights when the streets are deserted

Except for the take-away (G)signs

He thinks of the men that he worked with

On the buildings the (G7)roads and the (C)mines -G

The (C)girl that he met in The Galtee

He thought he might make her his (G)own

Maybe if there was less drinking

He wouldn't have wound up a(C)lone. -G

 

Chorus

(F)P is for powerful when put to the test

(C)A is for always doing you're best

(F)D is for doing if it can be done

And (Dm)D is for drinking when (G)workin’ was done

(F)Y is for yerning to see home again

(C)Proud to be Irish and hard working men

(F)Paddy remember though you're day is done

You're the (G7)rock that England stands (C)on.

 

C-G-C-G

 

You can (C)never explain just what happened

The years seem to pass like a (G)day

Was it the rain or the shovel

Took the strenght from his (G7)limbs a(C)way -G

Some(C)times he thinks of the boreen

That led from his house to the (G)lane

And the fields that he worked with his father

He'll never see them a(C)gain. -G

 

Chorus

C-G-C-G

 

As he (C)makes his way back to the shelter

Rain starts to fall on the (G)ground

A young man just in from Cork City

Asks him where (G7)work could be (C)found -G

He said (C)son take a long look at Paddy

And remember whatever you (G)do

This broken old man that you're seeing

Was once a young fellow like (C)you. -G

 

Chorus

C-G-C-G 2x

Paddy Lyrics Without The Chords.
From his window he watches as people
They come and go on their way
Rushing to catch the train homeward
As he often did in his day
He remembers the dark of the mornings
And the days he worked in the rain
The good times the bad times the friends he knew
He'll never see them again.

At nights when the streets are deserted
Except for the take-away signs
He thinks of the men that he worked with
On the buildings the roads and the mines
The girl that he met in The Galtee
He thought he might make her his own
Maybe if there was less drinking
He wouldn't have wound up alone.

P is for powerful when put to the test
A is for always doing you're best
D is for doing if it can be done
And D is for drinking when work it was done
Y is for yerning to see home again
Proud to be Irish and hard working men
Paddy remember though you're day is done
You're the rock that England stands on.

You can never explain just what happened
The years seem to pass like a day
Was it the rain or the shovel
Took the strenght from his limbs away
Sometimes he thinks of the boreen
That led from his house to the lane
And the fields that he worked with his father
He'll never see them again.

P is for powerful when put to the test
A is for always doing you're best
D is for doing if it can be done
And D is for drinking when work it was done
Y is for yerning to see home again
Proud to be Irish and hard working men
Paddy remember though you're day is done
You're the rock that England stands on.

As he makes his way back to the shelter
Rain starts to fall on the ground
A young man just in from Cork City
Asks him where work can be found
He said son take a long look at Paddy
And remember whatever you do
This broken old man that you're seeing
Was once a young fellow like you.

P is for powerful when put to the test
A is for always doing you're best
D is for doing if it can be done
And D is for drinking when work it was done
Y is for yerning to see home again
Proud to be Irish and hard working men
Paddy remember though you're day is done
You're the rock that England stands on.
