Intro: strum a D chord for two bars


D                   G    D                  G
Raised on songs and stor-ies, heroes of renown
        D                 G    D        A
Ah, the passing tales and glor-ies that once was Dublin town
    D                  G    D                           G
The hallowed halls and hous-es, the haunting childrens' rhymes
     D                G             A         D
That once was part of Dublin in the rare ould times

(chorus)
D             G  D                    Bm
Ring a ring a ro-sey, as the light de-clines
     D             G             A         D
I re-member Dublin city in the rare ould times


Tempo change

        D               G    D                     G
Well my name it is Sean Demp-sey, as Dublin as can be
     D                G     D        A
Born hard and late in Pimli-co, in a house that ceased to be

(enter electric guitar)
   D             G   D                         G
By trade I was a coo-per, lost out to redundan-cy
        D                  G            A              D
Like my house that fell to progress, my trade's a memo-ry


      D             G   D                     G
And I courted Peggy Dig-nam, as pretty as you please
  D                  G  D            A
A rogue and child of Ma-ry, from the rebel Liberties
  D             G       D                           G
I lost her to a student chap, with skin as black as coal
        D               G               A            D
When he took her off to Birmingham, she took away my soul


(chorus)


    D                  G   D                       G
The years have made me bit-ter, the gargle dims me brain
      D               G     D        A
Cause Dublin keeps on chang-ing, and nothing seems the same
    D              G        D                                 G
The Pillar and the Met have gone, the Royal long since pulled down
       D               G                 A          D
As the grey unyielding concrete, makes a city of my town


(chorus)

(interlude, the chords are the same as the chorus ans a verse)

          D               G  D                     G
Fare thee well sweet Anna Li-ffey, I can no longer stay
    D                   G  D         A
And watch the new glass ca-ges, that spring up along the quay
   D                  G    D                         G
My mind's too full of memo-ries, too old to hear new chimes
(slow here)
      D                G              A         D
I'm a part of what was Dublin, in the rare ould times

(chorus 2x)

I'm still not good with playing or holding any of the "bar style" chords, so when I'm really getting into this song, especially playing it in front of anyone, I just play G instead of the Bm in the chorus, and it sounds just as good. Not saying it's correct, but for those who still haven't mastered making a Bm ring and sound the same as a G it is an alternative.
