Someone recently requested this so here's my version.  Suggestions or
discussions welcomed.

Come On Eileen      by Dexy's Midnight Runners
--------------      --------------------------
Actually written by Rowland, Patterson and Adams (voice, trombone
and banjo).  Transcribed by MH from the 1982 album "Too-Rye-Ay".

*   the version released as a single in the UK was preceded
    by a few bars(measures) of a fiddle playing a traditional tune,
    "Oh Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms"
**  round brackets () denote BV (backing vocals)
*** during instrumental sections, bar divisions are marked | and
    the main instrument is indicated in square brackets.


First* 16 bars are instrumental:

|F   C   |F   Bb  |Bb  F   |C       |   x2   [fiddle]***

|C       |Em      |F       |C   G   |   x2   [fiddle and banjo]


C                Em
Poor old Johnny Ray
        F                          C                 G
Sounded sad upon the radio moved a million hearts in mono
C
 Our mothers cried
F           F                 C        G
Sang along, who'd blame them
C                               Em
You're grown (you're grown up), so grown (so grown up)**
F                             C        G
Now I must say more than ever            (come on Eileen)
C           Em            F
Toora-loora-toora-loo-rye-aye
           C                  G
and we can sing just like our fathers

|G C G C |GGC G C |G GGGGGG|     [brass section]


D                    F#m
Come on Eileen oh, I swear (well he means)
        Em              G      A
at this moment you mean everything
     D                     F#m
With you in that dress, my thoughts (I confess)
         Em             G     A
verge on dirty, Ah come on Eileen

|A       |A       |   [banjo]

|C       |Em      |F       |C   G   |    [fiddle and banjo]


C                  Em
These people round here
            F
wear beaten-down eyes sunk in smoke-dried faces,
      C                    G
so resigned to what their fate is
    C                    Em
but not us (no never) no not us (no never)
F                                C       G
we are far too young and clever             remember
C           Em            F
Toora-loora-toora-loo-rye-aye
            C                 G
Eileen I'll hum this tune for ever

|G C G C |GGC G C |G GGGGGG|     [brass section]


D                    F#m
Come on Eileen, oh I swear (well he means)
        Em                G     A
Ah come on let's take off everything
     D                   F#m
That pretty red dress, Eileen (tell him yes)
        Em                G    A
Ah come on let's, ah come on Eileen
     D                   F#m
That pretty red dress, Eileen (tell him yes)
        Em                G     A
Ah come on let's, ah come on Eileen
D
Please...


D                            F#m
 (Come on Eileen too-loo rye-aye come on)

                    G                                      D      A
(Eileen too-loo rye-aye  toora    toora-too-loora)
                    Now you have grown, now you have shown, oh Eileen
D                                                F#m

Come on Eileen, these things they are real and I know
                   G
how you feel       Now I must say more than ever
D                       A
 things round here have changed
D             F#m            G           D     A
Too-ra loo-ra too-ra loo-rye-aye
