"The Night Pat Murphy Died"
Great Big Sea

Capo 2


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

[Chorus:]

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

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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

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


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

[Chorus]

There is an error in the lyrics. "They stopped the hearse on George Street outside Sundance Saloon"
