And how we danced and sung

The rain it poured down all the day
C
And made the ground quite muddy
G7	   C
Coffee Johnny had a white hat on
F	       C
Shouted 'Wee stole the cuddy?'
D7	G7
There were spice stalls and monkey shows
C
And old wives selling ciders
G7	C
And the chap on the ha'penny roundabout
F	    C
Saying 'Any more lads for riders?'
G7	     C
