"JOHNNY I HARDLY KNEW YA" - Dropkick Murphys
Arrangement by "Firehouse Sessions" -B.moore

I believe the other tabs had the wrong chords and progression maybe. Try this rendition. If anything I felt
felt it played better with voice and acoustic. Also fixed the intro a bit. This is my first tab attempt.
Enjoy people.

A doleful damsel I heard cry

Where are the eyes that looked so mild

When my poor heart you first beguiled

Why did ya run from me and the child
