Intro: strum a D chord for two bars

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

C             F  C                    Am
Ring a ring a ro-sey, as the light de-clines
     C             F             G         C
I re-member Dublin city in the rare ould times

Tempo change

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

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

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


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


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

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

(chorus 2x)
