About this tab version
Taken from live performance on the late late show in 2016 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efibHMLQcos. Had tried following the existing tabs, but thought the timing was always a small bit off so tried following the live performance and think I got close. Christy has a capo in the performance but playing without a capo in standard tuning still fits with the performance. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming Are these strumming patterns correct? Yes No

Diddly aye stuff

[verses]
C                                F
It was in the year of '88 in the lovely month of June
G
When the gadflies were swarming and dogs howling at the moon
C                                    F
With rosary beads and sandwiches for Stuttgart we began
G                                                        C
Joxer packed his German phrasebook and jumpleads for the van

                                               F
Some of the lads had never been away from home before
G                                                            C
'Twas the first time Whacker put his foot outside of Inchicore
                                              F
Before we left for Europe we knew we'd need a plan
                      C             G                   F G
So we all agreed that Joxer was the man to drive the van

C                         F
In Germany the autobahn, 'twas like the Long Mile Road
G
There was every make of car and van all carrying the full load
C                              F
Ford Transits and Hiaces and a Bedford from Tralee
G                                                 C
With the engine overheating from longhauling duty free

                                                F
There was fans from Ballyfermot, Ballybough and Ballymun
G                                                     C
On the journey of a lifetime, and the craic was ninety-one
                                                        F
Joxer met a German's daughter on the banks of the river Rhine
                         C          G                  F    G
And he told her she'd be welcome in Ballyfermot any time

C                                 F
Next morning none of the experts, gave us the slightest chance
G
They said the English team would lead us on a merry dance
C                                               F
With their Union Jacks all them English fans for victory they were set
G                                                      C
Until Ray Houghton got the ball and he stuck it in the net

                               F                        G
What happened next is history, brought tears to many eyes
                                                 C
That day will be the highlight of many people's lives
                                                          F
Joxer climbed right over the top and the last time he was seen
                C                      G                     F   G
arm in arm with Jack Charlton singing, Revenge for Skibereen

C                                F
Now Whacker's back in Inchicore, he's living with his mam
G
And Jack Charlton has been proclaimed an honorary Irishman
C                                             F
Do you remember that German's daughter on the banks of the river Rhine
G
Well, didn't she show up in Ballyfermot last week and ...
