Top o' the morning to ye! This is my first tab I've submitted; it's a ridiculously simple song by the greatest, most high-energy band ever. As such, it must be played furiously (except for a few parts for contrast) with lightning quick down-up strumming. I'll add a few notes on dynamics, but this is quite a simple song. Enjoy it! Flogging Molly Every Dog Has Its Day Standard tuning Verse 1: (slow, 3/4 time) C G C G Well, Iíve drunk to drown on every ocean Iíve been C G Dm G Lake Tanganyika, where the crocodiles swim (fast 4/4) C G C G Halifax, Nova Scotia to Van Diemenís land C G Dm G Well I drank with the Sultan down the Suez Canal Chorus: C G Cause every dog has itís day C G Like every woman, she gets her own way C G And if thereís a ship that sails tonight F C G C G Iíll captain that, too... just to be there with you Verse 2: C G C G Well there was old Jerry Rooney, who was mad as a mule C G Dm G Spillblood Maloney had a head like one, too C G C G That night on the bridge with my shovel in hand C G Dm G Well he threatened to kill me Iím sure he picked the wrong man CHORUS Verse 3: C G C G Well there was mutiny in Lagos aboard the mean ship Skondi C G Dm Ten or twelve days in prison till the bastards set me free G McCloskey, youíre free Instrumental: C G C G C G Dm G CHORUS C G C G C G Dm Verse 4: (slow 3/4) C G C G Now I love the sea, and she wants me back C G Dm G So I leave this olí harbor with the wind at me back (very slow) C G C G Goodbye mother Theresa I hope the kids settle down C G Dm G I must head for the Chinas Pray to God I donít drown CHORUS X3 End on C chord That's the whole song. Ideally you'd have drums, fiddle, and mandolin to fill out the sound a bit, but this is a wonderful song as it is. Remember to pick up the pace for the ending choruses, and have fun with it!
