Intro:    Am-Am-Em-Em-Am-C-G-Em-Am-Am-G-G-Em-Em-Am-Am-Break-Break-


Come, [Am]listen now, I'll [Em]tell you how
I [Am]came to [C]leave Kil[G]larney, [Em]O,
I'm [Am]one of the boys that [G]fears no noise,
And me [Em]name is Paddy [Am]Kearney, O;
My [C]father's [G]name it [Am]was the same
And my grandfather be[G]fore him, O!
He [Am]carried this gun in [Em]ninety-eight
When the [Am]green flag [C]floated [G]o'er him, O.


Then, [Am]O, what fun to [G] them run,
And to [Em]leave a name in [Am]story, O!  (Break)
With my [C]father's [G]gun I'll [Am]follow the drum,
And fight my [G]way to glory, O.



When my [Am]father died, to [Em]his bedside
He[Am] called me[C]self, so [G]clever, [Em]O!
Says [Am]he, "My son, now [G]take this gun,
And [Em]guard it well for[Am]ever, O;"
But the [C]dirty [G]laws soon [Am]clapped their paws

On me, the dirty [G]blaggards, O!
So [Am]faith one day, I [Em]sailed away
To the [Am]land of [C]Yankee [G]Doodle, O!


One Verse + One Chorus instrumental


When the [Am]rebels raised a [Em]hubbuboo,
And of [Am]Sumter [C]took po[G]ssession, [Em]O,
In[Am]stead of our flag, they [G]raised a rag-
The [Em]standard of se[Am]cession, O;
It's [C]then I [G]joined the [Am]"69th,"
My father's gun to [G]shoulder, O!
For [Am]meself, you know, can [Em]slaugther the foe-
A [Am]devil a [C]one is [G]boulder, O!




I [Am]'listed then with [Em]Meagher's men,
The [Am]rebel [C]spalpeens [G]shooting, [Em]O,
In the [Am]bold brigade I'm [G]Sergeant made,
So [Em]here I'm back re[Am]cruiting, O;
Then [C]boys step [G]out, the [Am]foe to rout;
I'll lead you on to [G]glory, O,
And [Am]if you're killed, and your [Em]blood is spilt,
Your [Am]name will [C]live in [G]story, O!


One Verse+ One Chorus instrumental
