The Town I Loved So Well chords
Paddy Reilly  (Phil Coulter)

Capo I 

      G   D         C      G
In my memory I will always see
    C         G               D
the town that I have loved so well
          G             D           C        G
Where our school played ball by the gas yard wall
       C                   G     D       G
and we laughed through the smoke and the smell
      Em          D             G      Em   C
Going home in the rain, running up the dark lane
                  G      C        D
past the jail and down behind the fountain
           G     D          C          G
Those were happy days in so many, many ways
       C      G     D  G
in the town I loved so well

       G     D           C             G
In the early morning the shirt factory horn
       C          G                         D
called women from Creggan, the Moor and the Bog
          G          D             C        G
While the men on the dole played a mother's role,
        C            G    D          G
fed the children and then walked the dogs
         Em        D               G     Em    C
And when times got rough there was just about enough
                G           C      D
But they saw it through without complaining
    G      D          C       G
For deep inside was a burning pride
       C      G     D  G
in the town I loved so well

          G     D            C     G
There was music there in the Derry air
       C             G                       D
like a language that we could all could understand
    G          D          C               G
I remember the day when I earned my first pay
     C           G     D       G
As I played in a small pick-up band
        Em       D            G    Em      C
There I spent my youth and to tell you the truth
        G        C     D
I was sad to leave it all behind me
      G             D            C       G
For I learned about life and I'd found a wife
       C      G     D  G
in the town I loved so well

         G   D             C         G
But when I returned how my eyes have burned
   C         G                            D
to see how a town could be brought to its knees
       G       D            C          G
By the armored cars and the bombed out bars
        C              G       D   G
and the gas that hangs on to every tree
        Em       D               G   Em       C
Now the army's installed by that old gas yard wall
                 G         C           D
and the damned barbed wire gets higher and higher
           G               D           C                   G
With their tanks and their guns, oh my God, what have they done?
       C      G     D  G
to the town I loved so well

        G       D             C     G
Now the music's gone but they carry on
          C             G                 D
For their spirit's been bruised, never broken
          G      D             C          G
They will not forget but their hearts are set
     C          G     D     G
on tomorrow and peace once again
           Em      D               G   Em C
For what's done is done and what's won is won
                   G        C       D
and what's lost is lost and gone forever
      G    D          C                 G
I can only pray for a bright, brand new day
       C      G     D  G
in the town I loved so well
