Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Ok, I saw someone else posted chords for this song, and it sounded way off. So
here is my version, which i think is a little better.    For the begining part if
you want to hammer on your middle and index finger while playing the Am it sounds
kinda like they play it.  Well Enjoy! - PapaZ1243


Johnny I Hardly Knew Ya
Dropkick Murphy's


[Verse 1]

Am                                                     Em
While on the road to sweet Athy, Haroo, Haroo
Am                                                     C
While on the road to sweet Athy, Huroo, Huroo
C                                    G
While on the road to sweet Athy
Am                              Em
A Stick in my Hand, a tear in my eye
C               G           Am        Em 
A doleful damsel I heard cry
Am
Johnny I hardly knew ya


[Verse 2]

Am                                                                  Em
Where are the eyes that looked so mild, Hurroo Hurroo
Am                                                                  C
Where are the eyes that looked so mild, Hurroo Hurroo
C                                        G 
Where are the eyes that looked so mild
Am                                      Em
When my poor heart you first beguiled
         C         G              Am                Em
Why did ya run from me and the child
Am
Johnny I hardly knew ya


[Verse 3]

Am                                                                              Em
We had guns and drums and drums and guns, Hurroo Hurroo
Am                                                                              C
We had guns and drums and drums and guns, Hurroo Hurroo
C                                                 G
We had guns and drums and drums and guns
Am                           Em
The enemy never slew ya
C           G          Am        Em
(No Lyrics------------)
Am
Johnny I hardly knew ya


[Verse 4]

Am                                                                Em
Where are the legs with which you run, Hurroo Hurroo
Am                                                                C
Where are the legs with which you run, Hurroo Hurroo
C                                        G
Where are the legs with which you run,
Am                                   Em
When first you went to carry a gun
C                   G               Am         Em
Indeed your dancing days are done
Am
Johnny I hardly knew ya


[Verse 5]

Am                                                            Em
You hadn't an arm, you hadn't a leg, Hurroo Hurroo
Am                                                            C
You hadn't an arm, you hadn't a leg, Hurroo Hurroo
C                                        G
You hadn't an arm, you hadn't a leg
                Am                             Em
You're a spinless, boneless, chickenless egg
C                      G                     Am         Em
You'll Have to put with the bowl to beg
Am
Johnny I hardly knew ya


[Verse 6]

Am                                                Em
I'm happy for to see ya home, Hurroo Hurroo
Am                                                C
I'm happy for to see ya home, Hurroo Hurroo
C                           G
I'm happy for to see ya home
Am                    Em
From the isle of Ceylon
C     G     Am    Em
(no lyrics------)
Am
Johnny I hardly knew ya

Lack of accuracy. The chords sound off, I think some of the other tabs are more accurate. This one sounds a bit too low, and the open chords don't quite sound right.
