Anthony John Clarke - Irish Eyes



[Intro]
C  Dm  Em  F  C    G

[Verse 1]
       C              Dm
John's family, it was everything
        Em                F
And the children were his life
        C                                  G
And the neighbours always spoke of John so well
             C                    Dm
For once the cards stacked in his favour
        Em             F
And the offer came his way
       C                      G                 C      G
Twenty pounds for one night's work, he might as well


[Verse 2]
                             C
John drove his lorry down an empty road
     F                 C                G
From Carryduff through Saintfield, Tollymore
         C                 Dm
But they found poor John's body
       Em                 F
On the side of the lonely road
        C                    G                 C     Dm  Em  F  C    G
And the neighbours heard the police tap on the door


[Verse 3]
          C                    Dm
Well, the police they took the phone call
        Em                   F
It said there'd been some mistake
     C                            G
And apologies were sent to all concerned
           C                      Dm
Two hooded men had stopped John's lorry
       Em                 F
On the side of the lonely road
          C               G                 C      G
But their bullet had been meant for someone else


[Verse 4]
                            C
John's family tried to understand it
     F                    C                     G
They prayed in church for strength to pull them through
    C                  Dm
But they'd been seeing lorries
       Em                  F
On the sides of the lonely roads
     C               G             C     G
From Nineteen Sixty-Nine to Ninety-Two


[Chorus]
                                  C
This ain't no precious song about Ireland
   F                 C
So don't you dare mistake it
                                                G
For the ones that you whistle when you're going home
             C                 Dm
It's not all leaving from some harbour
             Em           F
It's not all step into my parlour
           C               G                  C    Dm  Em  F  C    G
Why should Irish Eyes keep smiling through it all?


[Verse 5]
            C           Dm
Well, there were investigations
     Em             F
Five minutes on the news
        C                                  G
And the mass card wore a picture of John's face
          C        Dm
There was outrage
    Em             F
Two letters in the paper
    C                 G                     C      G
And both sides of the fence, they sensed disgrace


[Verse 6]
                            C
And sure enough there were elections
  F              C                  G
Familiar cowboys tried to steal the show
    C                 Dm
Men spoke of changing attitudes
      Em             F
While thirteen tired platitudes
       C                    G             C      G
Pushed hope and poor John's lorry off the road


[Chorus]
                                  C
This ain't no precious song about Ireland
   F                 C
So don't you dare mistake it
                                                G
For the ones that you whistle when you're going home
             C                 Dm
It's not all leaving from some harbour
             Em           F
It's not all step into my parlour
           C               G
Why should Irish Eyes keep smiling?
           C               G                  C    Dm  Em  F  C    G
Why should Irish Eyes keep smiling through it all?
