[Verse 1]

C                   F    C    Am            F
Raised on songs and sto-ries, heroes of re-nown,
    C                  F    C         G               G7
the pass-ing tales and glo-ries that once was Dublin Town.
    C                   F    C
The hall-owed halls and hou-ses,
    Am                      F
the haunt-ing child-ren's rhymes,
      C               F    C      G7            C
that once was Dub-lin City in the rare___ ould times.


[Chorus]

 C            F   C          Am                F
Ring-a-ring-a ros-ey (pause) as the light de-clines,
      C              F       C      G             C
I re-mem-ber Dub-lin City___ in the rare___ ould times.


[Verse 2]

C                  F    C       Am            F
My name it is sean Demp-sey, as Dublin as can be.
     C                F    C         G                 G7
Born hard and late in Pim-lico, in a house that ceased to be
   C             F   C
By Trade I was a coo-per,
     Am               F
lost out to re-dundan-cy.
        C                  F    C        G7          C
Like my house that fell to pro-gress, my trade's a memory.


[Verse 3]

C               F    C      Am            F
I courted Peggy Dig-nan, as pretty as you please.
   C                   F   C       G              G7
A rogue and a Child of Ma-ry, from the rebel Liber-ties.
  C              F     C
I lost her to a student chap,
     Am               F
with skin as black as coal.
     C                  F     C     G7              C
When he took her off to Birmingham, she took away my soul.


[Chorus]

 C            F   C          Am                F
Ring-a-ring-a ros-ey (pause) as the light de-clines,
      C              F       C      G             C
I re-mem-ber Dub-lin City___ in the rare___ ould times.


[Verse 4]

    C                  F   C        Am             F
The years have made me bi-tter, the gargle dims my brain.
       C               F     C        G                G7
'Cause Dublin keeps on chang-ing, and nothing seems the same
    C                    F    C
The Pill-ar and the Met. have gone
    Am                      F
the Royal long since pulled down.
       C                F    C            G7        C
As the great unyielding con-crete makes a city of my town.


[Verse 5]

C                    F    C             Am        F
Fare thee well sweet Anna Liffey, I can no longer stay,
    C                   F   C       G                 G7
And watch the new glass ca-ges that spring up along the Quay
   C                  F    C
My mind's too full of mem-ories,
    Am             F
to old to hear new chimes.
    C                F       C      G7           C
I'm part of what was Dublin, in the rare___ ould times.


[Chorus]

 C            F   C          Am                F
Ring-a-ring-a ros-ey (pause) as the light de-clines,
      C              F       C      G             C
I re-mem-ber Dub-lin City___ in the rare___ ould times.
