***Donegal Express - by Shane MacGowan
from the album "The Snake"

Donegal Express - as perfomed by Shane MacGowan and The Popes

Intro (A,D,A,E, A,D,A,E,A)

    A                 D                A                     E
Who dares to speak of Donegal, you get kicks in the bars and in the balls
    A                   D                A       E      A
The harp that played in Tara's halls, is burning in the dump
   A          D            A           E
Virginia is a gin town, Belturbot is a sin town
    A                  D              A       E      A
And all the boys from skintown are in England on the lump

Got pissed in Letterkenny, with darlin' sportin' Jenny
Spent me very last penny and we made it in the press
The husband caught me in the bed, tried to shoot me in the head
I had to swim the stream to get the Donegal Express

  A         D          A            E
Kahaya! You fuck! Come Hell or high water
  A                      D             A                 E
I might have fucked your Missus, but I never fucked your daughter

Fol-diddle-dee-ah (X 4)
(A,D,A,E X 3) (A,D,A,E,A - last time only)

(A,D,A,E, A,D,A,E,A) X 2

strum F#m

As sure as I'm Father Emmett, I've got a King Dong down me Semmett
As any girl will tell you from Cavan down to Clare
Back in sweet Virginia, in the toilet with Lavinia
I nearly fucked her brains out, and tore her party dress
A shit, a shave, a shower, A half a pint of Powers
Then off again to get on board the Donegal Express


(A,D,A,E, A,D,A,E,A) X 2


(A,D,A,E, A,D,A,E,A) X 4
