A great new song from Mike Denver. Enjoy.

C                                                          G
From his window he watches as people, come and go on their way.
                                                             C
Rushin to catch the train homewards, as he often did in his day.
                                                                  G
He remembers the dark of the mornings, the days he worked in the rain.
                                                         G7
the good times the bad times the friends that the knew, he'll never see them 
  C
again.
                                                                  G
At night when the streets are deserted, except for the take away signs

he thinks of the men that he worked with, on the buildings the roads and the 
  C
mines
                                                                      G
the girl that he met in the galtee, he thought he might make her his own.
                                   G7
Maybe if there was less drinkin', he wouldn't have wound up alone.



Chorus
 F                                      C
P is for powerful when put to the test, A is for always doin' your best,
F                                     D                       G
D is for doin' if it can be done, and D is for drinkin' when work it is done
F                                     C
Y is for yearnin' to see home again, proud to be Irish and hard workin' men
F                                                   G         G7
Paddy remember though your day is done, you're the rock that England stands 
C
on.
C                                                                       G
He never explained just what happened, the years seemed to pass like a day,
                                 G7                               C
Was it the rain or the shovel, took the strength from his limbs away.
C                                                                  G
Sometimes he thinks of the boreen, that led from his house to the lane.
                                                G7                   C
And the fields that he worked with his father, he'll never see them again.

Chorus
F                                       C
P is for powerful when put to the test, A is for always doin' your best,
F                                     D                        G
D is for doin' if it can be done, and D is for drinkin' when work it is done
F                                     C
Y is for yearnin' to see home again, proud to be Irish and hard workin' men
F                                                   G
Paddy remember though your day is done, you're the rock that England stands 
C
on.
D                                                                     A
As he makes his way back to the shelter, rain starts to fall on the ground
                                                                D
A young man just in from Cork City, asks him where work can be found.
                                                                   A
He said "son take a long look at Paddy, and remember what ever you do,
                                                                       D
This broken old man that you're seein, was once a young man just like you"

Chorus
G                                       D
P is for powerful when put to the test, A is for always doin' your best,
G                                     E                       A            
is for doin' if it can be done, and D is for drinkin' when work it is done
G                                     D                             
Y is for yearnin' to see home again, proud to be Irish and hard workin' men
G                                                  A          A7             
Paddy remember though your day is done, you're the rock that England stands 
D
on. Chorus X2
