Oh, I'm (Em)Barney Hare from the (D)County Clare,
And (Bm)Ireland I was (D)born in;
I (Em)pawned me coat for to (D)take the boat,
And I (G)landed (D)here this (Em)morning.
(Em)when I landed (D)on the quay,
I (Bm)found meself in (D)danger;
began to (D)follow me,
(G)knew I (D)was a (Em)stranger.
of them, "Give me that stick!"
he tried to snatch it;
So I (C)brought
it (G)down u(Am)pon his (G)crown,
(Em)blow that made him (C)scratch (G)it.
(Em)walked in peace and (D)quietness,
(Bm)came to the big church (D)steeple;
(Em)fellah to me: "Take (D)in your feet,
you (G)see you're (D)trippin' the (Em)people?"
to him, "Give me none of your guff."
"Give me none of your Blarney."
So I (C)hit
him a (G)clout at the (Am)foot of the (G)snout,
(Em)says, "Remember (C)Bar(G)ney."
I can dance an (D)Irish jig,
a (Bm)job of journey (D)work, sir?
I've (Em)got a heart as (D)big as gold,
the (D)fields like (Em)Turks, sir.
(G)harvest fair you'll find me there,
latest songs I'll sing, sir;
(G)Hare from the (Am)County (G)Clare,
(Em)make the rafters (C)ring, (G)sir.
