"The Night Pat Murphy Died"
Great Big Sea

Capo 2


G                                    C                        G
Oh the night that Paddy Murphy died, is a night I'll never forget
G                     Em                C                    D
Some of the boys got loaded drunk, and they ain't got sober yet;
G                                    C                       G
As long as a bottle was passed around every man was feelin' gay
G            Em                C           D         G
O'Leary came with the bagpipes, some music for to play

[Chorus:]

G                            C                    G
That's how they showed their respect for Paddy Murphy
G              Em              C                 D
That's how they showed their honour and their pride;
G                                  C                        G
They said it was a sin and shame and they winked at one another
G                Em                    C          D          G
And every drink in the place was full the night Pat Murphy died
G Em C D G

G                                C                 G
As Mrs. Murphy sat in the corner pouring out her grief
G              Em           C                D
Kelly and his gang came tearing down the street
G                                C                     G
They went into an empty room and a bottle of whiskey stole
G                    Em              C            D        G
They put the bottle with the corpse to keep that whiskey cold

[Chorus]

G                                C                    G
About two o'clock in the morning after empty'ing the jug
G              Em                C                  D
Doyle rolls up the ice box lid to see poor Paddy's mug
G                                    C                  G
We stopped the clock so Mrs. Murphy couldn't tell the time
G                Em        C            D     G
And at a quarter after two we argued it was nine

[Chorus]

G                         C                 G
They stopped the hearse outside Sundance Saloon
G                  Em                   C                  D
They all went in at half past eight and staggered out at noon
G                               C               G
They went up to the graveyard, so holy and sublime
G                    Em         C           D            G
Found out when they got there, they'd left the corpse behind!


[Chorus]
G                                    C                        G
Oh the night that Paddy Murphy died, is a night I'll never forget
G                    Em                 C                  D
Some of the boys got loaded drunk and they ain't been sober yet;
G                                      C                     G
As long as a bottle was passed around every man was feelin' gay
G             Em                 C        D        G
O'Leary came with the bagpipes, some music for to play

[Chorus]

There is an error in the lyrics. "They stopped the hearse on George Street outside Sundance Saloon"

I'm pretty sure the last line of the chorus and the little part after that are: G G#f Em C D G
