[Verse 1]
      Bb
I’m a 21st centry Irish man
Ab                            Eb
Livin’ my life the best I can
                                 Bb     Ab
But the world never cared when I tried
Bb
Life gets hard when the road’s so long
          Ab                            Eb
Still the 21st century has got me wrong
                                   Bb
From the bottom of the bottle I’ve cried
               Ab
They said “you ain’t no son of mine”

[Verse 2]
      Bb
I’m a 21st centry Irish man
Ab                            Eb
Livin’ my life the best I can
        Ab                        Bb     Ab
But not good enough to catch your eye
   Bb
We raise our glass up for heaven and earth
    Ab                                            Eb
And fight for the right for us to prove our worth

[Chorus]
                                   Bb   F   Eb
‘cause you don’t give a damn if we die
                        Bb   F   Eb
We drink another to get by
                                   Bb   F   Eb
Calling down like thunder from the sky
                                       Bb   F   Eb
We’re gonna swing and let the last one fly

[Intro part 2]

[Verse 3]
      Bb
I’m a 21st centry Irish man
    Ab                                      Eb
Forefathers came over from a Highland land
                                   Bb     Ab
Just the wipe your spit from their eyes
         Bb
From the highest highs to the lowest lows
            Ab                              Eb
Through the level of hell that only Fenians own

[Chorus]
                                   Bb   F   Eb
‘cause you don’t give a damn if we die
                        Bb   F   Eb
We drink another to get by
                                   Bb   F   Eb
Calling down like thunder from the sky
                                       Bb   F   Eb   Bb
We’re gonna swing and let the last one fly

[Violin Solo](Not perfect but did the best I could. The guitar and violin have
different techniques so it was hard to figure out all the notes)

‘cause you don’t give a damn if we die
                        Bb   F   Eb
We drink another to get by
                                   Bb   F   Eb
Calling down like thunder from the sky
                                       Bb   F   Eb
We’re gonna swing and let the last one fly


[Outro]
         Bb
From the frigid night to the hottest days
(I’m a 21st century Irish man)
I have bled for the floors where my children lay
(I’m a 21st century Irish man)
Beat down in the streets for being who I am
(I’m a 21st century Irish man)
I’m an Irish bastard, I don’t give a damn
              Eb    Bb
(21st century Irish man)
