                     THE CRAIC WAS NINETY IN THE ISLE OF MAN

       G              G                  G                 G
    Weren't we,  The rare ould stock,  Spent the evening gettin' locked
     D              D                     C                  C
    In the Ace of Hearts,      Where the high stools were engaging
     G                       G                         G                  G
    Over the Butt bridge,  Down be the dock,  And the boat she sailed at five o'clock
      D                D           C                          C
    Hurry lads, Says Whack,   Or before we're there,   We'll all be back
      G               G                 G              D               G     G
    Carry him if you can,     Oh, The craic was ninety in the Isle of Man

       G                     G                  G                 G
    Before we reached the Alexander Base,  The ding dong we did surely raise
            D                   D
    In the bar of the ship, We had great sport
            C                   C
    As the boat she sailed out from the port
      G                 G                G              G
    Landed up in the Douglas Head,    Enquirin' for a vacant bed
    D                           D            C          C
    In the dining room,   Got shown,  By a decent woman up the road
           G             G                 G               D               G    G
    Lads, Bate it if ya can,     Oh,  The craic was ninety in the Isle of Man

            G                 G                 G                 G
    Next morning went for a ramble round,  And saw the sights a Douglas Town
     D                   D                   C                    C
    Then we went for a mighty session,  In a pub they call Dick Darbys
     G                G                    G                G
    All got drunk be half past three,  To sober up, Went swimming in the sea
     D                          D                      C              C
    Back to the digs for the spruce up,   And while waitin' for the rosie
        G               G                  G              D               G
    We all drew up our plan,     Oh, The craic was ninety in the Isle of Man

          G                     G             G                 G
    That night we went to the Texas Bar, And came back down be horse and car
     D                  D                 C                  C
    Met Big Jim and we all went in,  To drink some wine in Yates's
           G              G                   G                     G
    The Liverpool girls,  It was said,  Were all to be met in The Douglas Head
       D                    D                          C                   C
    McShane was there in a tie and shirt,  With the foreign girls he was tryin' to flirt
              G                 G               G              D               G   G
    Sayin',  Hey girls I'm yer man,  Oh,  The craic was ninety in the Isle of Man

      G              G                        G                G
    Whacker fancied his good looks,  With an Isle of Man woman he was struck
           D              D                           C               C
    The Liverpool lad was by her side,   As he was throwin' the jar into her
      G                   G                      G                   G
    Whacker thought he'd take a chance,   So he asked the quare wan out to dance
      D                     D                  C               C
    Round the floor they stepped it out,  To Whack it was no bother
          G                  G                G              D               G
    Everythin' was goin' ta plan,   Oh, The craic was ninety in the Isle of Man

         G                   G
    The Isle of Man woman fancied Whack
         G                           G
    Yer man stood there,  'Til his heads came back
          D                        D                C              C
    And whack,  They all whacked inta Whack,  And Whack was landed on his back
          G              G                G                G
    The Douglas force arrived as well,  Landed a couple a belts as well
          D                D              C               C
    And ended up in the Douglas Jail,   Until the Dublin boat did sail
      G             G                G              D               G
    Deported every man,   Oh,  The craic was ninety in the Isle of Man
