each verse. Enjoy! :)

No Capo

Intro: F#m, D, A, E

  F#m      D          A      E
Of all the money that e'er I had
     F#m      D       A     E
I've spent it in good company
    F#m      D        A         E
And all the harm that e'er I've done
 F#m    D      Bm       F#m
Alas it was to none but me
    A        D        A       E
And all I've done for want of wit
   Bm  A  E     F#m     E
To memory now I can't recall
   F#m     D      A       E
So fill to me the parting glass
     F#m       D      Bm       F#m
Good night and joy be with you all

Of all the comrades that e'er I had
They are sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e'er I had
They would wish me one more day to stay
But since it falls unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
Good night and joy be with you all

A man may drink and not be drunk
A man may fight and not be slain
A man may court a pretty girl
And perhaps be welcomed back again
But since it has so ordered been
By a time to rise and a time to fall
Come fill to me the parting glass
Goodnight and joy be with you all
Goodnight and joy be with you all

Transpose 2 steps down and put capo on 2 if the regular version is too hard :)
