It's A Long Way Home To Donegal

by Larrikin Love / M. Mitchell

from the B-side to "Edwould"
-------------------------------------

NOTE: The lyrics and chords are only approximate, but to me they sound
about right, so I apologise to anyone if they are wrong...

-----------

Intro
G, Bm, C, D, G, D

Verse 1
     G    
I'll follow their father wherever you go,
  Bm                                  C
I know that I'll snow, we can bestow together,
       D                             G                 D
With a drink in our chest we'll be strong, we'll be strong

Verse 2
        G           
While I love you dear mother, now, don't you frown,
        Bm
I'll be back some day without the grey skies,
           C            D                       G          D
We'll have supper, together again, we'll have supper, once again

Chorus
       G         D
It's a long way home
       C         D       G       D
It's a long way home to Donegal

Verse 3
    G            
so farewell my beauty, my sweet young girl,
     Bm
i'll see you again, I'll marry you as well,
           C                  D                G           D
we'll make love, have sweet children, and make love, once again

Verse 4
     G       
Then December the 12th, a letter it came,
    Bm                                                C
It re-sung your young love, was laid by a fever last night,
     D           G        D
Oh no, I never saw, Oh, again

Chorus x 2

Instrumental
G, Bm, C, D, G, D X2

Verse 5
        G
Oh say so my brother, wherever we roam,
   Bm
I love you like the places we go,
         C              D                       G               D
and our friends smoke cigarettes, and they're friends, best of friends

Verse 6
           G
Oh there's no Irish blood, in our English years,
     Bm
we fight with our fists and swallow our fears,
       C               D                           G               D
and be strong, with a drink in our chest we'll be strong, we'll be strong

Chorus x2

False End
G

End Instrumental
(D, G, D, A
D, G, D, A, D) x6

(1st time just banjo, then 4x all, 6th time fade out)
