***The Broad Majestic Shannon - by Shane MacGowan
from the album "If I Should Fall From Grace With God"

Note: I have added some fills that I play on guitar that duplicate other
instruments on the song.  I also added the bridge that was missing.

The Broad Majestic Shannon - as perfomed by The Pogues

D G  D Bm  D G  A D (with Main Riff)

    D                       G           D
The last time I saw you was down at the Greeks
          D                     G            Bm
There was whiskey on Sunday and tears on our cheeks
    D                             G
You sang me a song as pure as the breeze
     D            G       A
on a road leading up Glenaveigh
  D                      G           D
I sat for a while at the cross at Finnoe
            D                          G               Bm
Where young lovers would meet when the flowers were in bloom
D                                              G
Heard the men coming home from the fair at Shinrone
      D              G        A         D
Their hearts in Tipperary wherever they go
        D                  G     A
Take my hand, and dry your tears babe
        D                 G     A
Take my hand, forget your fears babe
           D                     G  A
There's no pain, there's no more sorrow
            D     G             A
They're all gone,   gone in the years babe

D G  D Bm  D G  A D (with Main Riff)

I sat for a while by the gap in the wall
Found a rusty tin can and an old hurley ball
Heard the cards being dealt, and the rosary called
And a fiddle playing Sean Dun na nGall
And the next time I see you we'll be down at the Greeks
There'll be whiskey on Sunday and tears on our cheeks
For it's stupid to laugh and it's useless to bawl
About a rusty tin can and an old hurley ball

D G  D Bm  D G  A D (with Main Riff)

D G  D Bm  D G  A D (with Main Riff)

     D                     G   A
So I walked as the day was dawning
                  D                    G   A
Where small birds sang and leaves were falling
              D                     G   A
Where we once watched the row boats landing
       D     G         A   D
By the broad  majestic Shannon

D G  D Bm  D G  A D (with Main Riff)
