[Intro]
F5 G5 A5 Bb5 C5 
F   C   F


[Verse 1]
      F                                     Bb/F              F
T'was up in the Bluestack mountains, D'arcy kept a bit of a still

        F                                   Dm              C
We were sneaking home a bottle, when the guards came up the hill

 F                                   Bb/F              F
"Lose the booze" cried D'arcy and before we could reply,

       Bb                            C               F
He'd dumped it in the nosebag of his donkey standing by.

     F                           Bb/F         F
The donkey had a ganky leg, and only one good eye.

         F                                                   C
When he got a lick of the whiskey, he'd swear that he could fly

    Dm7                                                   C
He rocketed through the roundabout, and down by Jamesie's bar,

         Bb                                C             F
Then he vaulted through the hedges at the track at Ballintra


[Chorus 1]
F                 Bb/F             F
Here's to you, to me and one and all

       F                                            C
To the garda, and the gargle, and the trophy on the wall

F                 Bb/F             F
Here's to you, to me and one and all

             F                               C              F
The day that D'arcy's drunken donkey won the race at Donegal


[Fiddle fill]  
F C F


[Verse 2]
     F                               Bb/F           F
The garda chased the donkey, and we followed in pursuit,

     F                                Dm                 C
For fear they'd spill the whiskey, we begged them not to shoot

   F                                   Bb/F              F
We barreled through the turnstiles, we got there just in time,

   Bb                                   Csus4                F
To place our bets before the lot of 'em reached the starting line.

   F                                  Bb/F                F
The flag was up, the race was on, the donkey looked behind

   F                                                   C
He saw the guards were after him but sure he didn't mind

    Dm7                                            C
He had himself another sip, and a second one as well,

        Bb                                     C              F 
Then he bucked and kicked and knocked the competition all to hell.


[Chorus 2]
F                 Bb/F             F
Here's to you, to me and one and all

       F                                            C
To the garda, and the gargle, and the trophy on the wall

F                 Bb/F             F
Here's to you, to me and one and all

             F                               C              F   D
The day that D'arcy's drunken donkey won the race at Donegal

[Verse 3]
    G                              C/G          G
The donkey passed the post about a lap or two ahead

    G                             Em           D
He finished off the whiskey, then toppled over dead

   G                                     C/G            G 
We went to check the bets and found when everything was done

    C                             D     G
The garda came in second and paid 35 to one!

      G                                     C/G               G
So we dragged the donkey's carcass down to Jamesie's for a pint

   G                                               D
To drink up all our winnings, and to celebrate the night

   Em                                              D
We missed the poor old donkey, but still we had to laugh

     C                             D              G
When Jamesie made a trophy of the donkey's better half


[Pre-Chorus]
           C                                   D
So raise a beer in the air, to the famous derriere

     C            D                 G
Everybody raise a glass to D'arcy's ass! D'arcy's ass!

     C            D                 G         
Everybody raise a glass to D'arcy's ass! D'arcy's ass!


[Chorus 3]
G                 C/G             G
Here's to you, to me and one and all

       G                               D             
To the garda, and the gargle, and the trophy on the wall

G                 C/G             G
Here's to you, to me and one and all

             G                               D           G
The day that D'arcy's drunken donkey won the race at Donegal             

             G                               D           G
The day that D'arcy's drunken donkey won the race at Donegal
