"The Night Pat Murphy Died"
Great Big Sea

Capo 2


F                                    F                        F
Oh the night that Paddy Murphy died, is a night I'll never forget
F                     Am                F                    G
Some of the boys got loaded drunk, and they ain't got sober yet;
F                                    F                       F
As long as a bottle was passed around every man was feelin' gay
F            Am                F           G         F
O'Leary came with the bagpipes, some music for to play

[Chorus:]

F                            F                    F
That's how they showed their respect for Paddy Murphy
F              Am              F                 G
That's how they showed their honour and their pride;
F                                  F                        F
They said it was a sin and shame and they winked at one another
F                Am                    F          G          F
And every drink in the place was full the night Pat Murphy died
F Am F G F

F                                F                 F
As Mrs. Murphy sat in the corner pouring out her grief
F              Am           F                G
Kelly and his gang came tearing down the street
F                                F                     F
They went into an empty room and a bottle of whiskey stole
F                    Am              F            G        F
They put the bottle with the corpse to keep that whiskey cold

[Chorus]

F                                F                    F
About two o'clock in the morning after empty'ing the jug
F              Am                F                  G
Doyle rolls up the ice box lid to see poor Paddy's mug
F                                    F                  F
We stopped the clock so Mrs. Murphy couldn't tell the time
F                Am        F            G     F
And at a quarter after two we argued it was nine

[Chorus]

F                         F                 F
They stopped the hearse outside Sundance Saloon
F                  Am                   F                  G
They all went in at half past eight and staggered out at noon
F                               F               F
They went up to the graveyard, so holy and sublime
F                    Am         F           G            F
Found out when they got there, they'd left the corpse behind!


[Chorus]
F                                    F                        F
Oh the night that Paddy Murphy died, is a night I'll never forget
F                    Am                 F                  G
Some of the boys got loaded drunk and they ain't been sober yet;
F                                      F                     F
As long as a bottle was passed around every man was feelin' gay
F             Am                 F        G        F
O'Leary came with the bagpipes, some music for to play

[Chorus]
