***SPANISH LADY - Traditional
from the album "The Crock Of Gold"

Spanish Lady - as perfomed by Shane MacGowan and the Popes

[Verse 1]
G                   Em          Am              D7
As I came down thru Dublin city at the hour of twelve at night
G                      Em            Am                  D7
Who should I see but a Spanish Lady, washing her feet by candlelight
G                     Em                  G              D
First she washed them then she dried them over a fire of amber coals
G                Em              Am            D7
In all my life I ne'er did see a maid so sweet about the soul

[Chorus]
G                   Em
Whack for the toora loora laddy
Am                  D7
Whack for the toora loora lay
G                   Em
Whack for the toora loora laddy
Am                  D7
Whack for the torra loora lay

[Verse 2]
As I came back thru Dublin city at the hour of half past eight
Who should I see but the  Spanish lady brushing her hair in broadday light
First she tossed  it then she combed  it on her lap  was a silver comb
In all my life I ne'er did see a maid so fair since I did roam

[Chorus]
G                   Em
Whack for the toora loora laddy
Am                  D7
Whack for the toora loora lay
G                   Em
Whack for the toora loora laddy
Am                  D7
Whack for the torra loora lay

[Verse 3]
As I came back thru Dublin city as the sun began to set
Who should I see but the Spanish lady catching a moth in a golden net
When see saw me then  she fled me lifting her pettycoat  over her knee
In all my life I ne'er did see a maid so shy as the Spanish Lady

[Chorus]
G                   Em
Whack for the toora loora laddy
Am                  D7
Whack for the toora loora lay
G                   Em
Whack for the toora loora laddy
Am                  D7
Whack for the torra loora lay

[Verse 4]
I've wandered north and I've wandered south  throu stormy batter and Patricks Close
Up and  around the  by the  Glouster Diamond and back by Napper Tandy's house
Old age has laid her hand on me cold as a fire of ashy coals
In all my life I ne'er did see a maid so sweet as the Spanish Lady

I like theses chords, its a beautiful song and its easy to play but instead of the D7 i play a normal D. Sounds better to me.
