                     The Kilburn High-Flogging Molly

Tabbed by: Joel Rudolph
Email: farewell_ireland@yahoo.com

Tuning: Standard-EADGBe



Verse 1:
G            
Many's the day I took for granted
Am                             Em
Breathing the air that silenced some
       Em
As the North Wind blew

With it's head of thunder
Am                                     G
Beating its breast with a war drenched song
G     Am               C
Bathe awhile, awash in slumber
G          Am      D
Cry what's left to sleep
          G            Am               C
Where you dream of the love you left forever
    G       Am       D
But pity no more nor grieve

Chorus:
              G           C
For we're the kings of it all
         Am          D
From the day we were born
              G            Am      D
Now we're the Kings of the Kilburn High
           G             C              Am
Sure we'll always take a drop and we'll never
        D
leave a sup
           G              Am          D
Your empty glass is but a tear filled eye
            C            D       Em<--(that Em is the same as the Intro Em)
We were the Kings of the Kilburn High

Intro: Em  Am Em  Em  Am Em

Verse 2:
G                               
Listen to the sound of dead men dying
Am                            Em
March as they flee but exiled bound
      Em                        
Their ship once sailed no longer anchors
    Am 
For gone is the green
                   G
And their hallowed ground
Em       Am                  C
Toast to tears of times past glories
     G       Am          D
This ageless clock chime stalls
         G        Am                   C
Where to kiss the lips of that love forgotten
   G            Am          D
To fly where no others have soared

Chorus:
              G           C
For we're the kings of it all
         Am          D
From the day we were born
              G            Am      D
Now we're the Kings of the Kilburn High
           G             C              Am
Sure we'll always take a drop and we'll never
        D
leave a sup
           G              Am          D
Your empty glass is but a tear filled eye
            C            D       Em
We were the Kings of the Kilburn High
            C            D       Em<--(that Em is the same as the Intro Em)
We were the Kings of the Kilburn High

Chords during guitar solo: Em  Am Em  Em  Am Em(basically the same as intro)

Em       Am                  C
Toast to tears of times past glories
     G       Am          D
This ageless clock chime stalls
         G        Am                   C
Where to kiss the lips of that love forgotten
   G            Am          D
To fly where no others have soared

Chorus:
              G           C
For we're the kings of it all
         Am          D
From the day we were born
              G            Am      D
Now we're the Kings of the Kilburn High
           G             C              Am
Sure we'll always take a drop and we'll never
        D
leave a sup
           G              Am          D
Your empty glass is but a tear filled eye
              G           C
For we're the kings of it all
         Am          D
From the day we were born
              G            Am      D
Now we're the Kings of the Kilburn High
           G             C              Am
Sure we'll always take a drop and we'll never
        D
leave a sup
           G              Am          D
Your empty glass is but a tear filled eye
            C            D       Em
We were the Kings of the Kilburn High
            C            D      
We were the Kings of the Kilburn
    Em
"Oh Mary, this London's a wonderful sight"

At the part where they repeat "we were the kings of the Kilburn high" after the Em of the first one it sounds like there's some Am Em similar to the intro before you play the C. Not 100% sure but i guess something like
C D Em Am Em
we were the kings of the Kilburn high
C D Em...
we were the kings of the Kilburn high

follower by the intro chords like you have it. Other than that and awkwardness of the interlude these chords are good and I've had fun playing it.
