[Verse 1]
   Bm      G          D      A
Of all the money that e'er I had
      Bm   (Bm7)G       D    Asus4-A
I've spent  it  in good company
    Bm      Gmaj7     D         A
And all the harm that e'er I've done
Bm  (G) D/F#    G/Dsus4     Bm
Alas it was  to none    but me

[Chorus 1]
        D        G        D       G
    And all I've done for want of wit
   (D) Em7    D     Bm      Asus4-A
    To mem'ry now I can't recall
       Bm  (Bm7)G      D       A
    So fill to  me the parting glass
        Bm    (G)  D/F# (A) G/Dsus4 (F#m7)  Bm
    Goodnight and  joy   be with     you    all

[Verse 2]
   Bm      G             D   (D5)  Asus4-A
Of all the comrades that e'er I've had
         Bm7   Gmaj7   D      Asus4-A
They are sorry for  my goin' away
    Bm (Bm7)G                D   (D5)  A
And all the sweethearts that e'er I've had
           Bm  (G) D/F# (A)  G      Bm
They would wish me one  more day to stay

[Chorus 2]
        D        G     D   G
    But since it falls unto my lot
    (D) Em7       D        Bm  (Bm7)  Asus4-A
    That I should rise and you should not
         G      (A7sus4 D5)          G      Asus4-A
    I'll gently rise        and I'll softly call
        Bm    (G)  D/F# (A) G/Dsus4  (F#m7) Bm
    Goodnight and  joy   be with     you    all

[Verse 3]
  Bm      G/Dsus4     D      Asus4
A man may drink   and not be drunk
  Bm7               Bm     Asus4-A
A man may fight and not be slain
  Bm (Bm7)G       D5     Asus4-A
A man may court a pretty girl
       Gmaj7 (G) D        G/Dsus4  (F#m7)Bm
And perhaps   be welcomed back         again

[Chorus 3]
        D        G      D        G
    But since it has so ought to be
   (D)   Em7     D          Bm  (Bm7)Asus4-A
    By a time to rise and a time to  fall
         G/Dsus4  (A7sus4 D5)     G       Asus4-A
    Come fill to me          the parting glass
        Bm    (G)  D/F# (A) G/Dsus4 (F#m7) G       D
    Goodnight and  joy   be with     you   all

[End]
         G       D5     G       Asus4-----A
    Come fill to me the parting glass,
        Bm    (G)  D (A) G    A   G
    Goodnight and joy be with you all
    (A Bm)
