Lindisfarne - Poor Old Ireland



[INTRO:] G  Dm7   G  Dm7   G  Dm7   G  Dm7-G
[VERSE 1:]
         Dm7      G        Dm7
Poor old Ireland, poor old universe
G          Dm7           G     Dm7-G
Wonder who comes off the worse
         Dm7       G              Dm7
Poor old people mistreating, misbelieving
    G          Dm7         G     Dm7-G
Are you given, cursed by a curse


[VERSE 2:]
                        Dm7        G           Dm7
But I don't want you to die, I can see all the lies
        G       Dm7          G   Dm7-G
There's nothing there that's new
                     Dm7          G              Dm7
But there's still no need to make blind children bleed
     G           Dm7    G    Dm7-G
Even if what you say is true


[VERSE 3:]
        F                          C
And meanwhile in the aisles of the churches with style
        Em                         G
They're singing their songs to the lord
        F                             C
And the preacher is carping, that for failure on earth
Em                    D
Heaven will be your reward


[VERSE 4:]
G        Dm7      G           Dm7
Poor old Ireland, tortured by past
    G           Dm7       G     Dm7-G
And tarnished by future's curse
         Dm7      G        Dm7
Poor old Ireland, poor old planet
G        Dm7 G    Dm7-G
Poor old universe


[INSTRUMENTAL:] G  Dm7   G  Dm7   G  Dm7   G  Dm7-G
                G  Dm7   G  Dm7   G  Dm7   G  Dm7-G


[VERSE 5:]
    F                        C
Oh, Ireland your people mean more than the idols
    Em                G
You seek to set up on earth
        F                            C
And the day that you see, that's the day
                 Em                        D    D/C  D/B  D/A     (*Bass on the A-string*)
That all of your sadness and sickness will die


[VERSE 5:]
        F                    C
For the enemy you seek to destroy
             Em                   G
Is not the one who's causing your pain
        F                            C
He's disguised himself well with his book and his bell
    Em                D
But evil is still his name


[VERSE 5:]
G        Dm7      G           Dm7
Poor old Ireland, tortured by past
    G            Dm7      G     Dm7-G
And tarnished by future's curse
         Dm7      G        Dm7
Poor old Ireland, poor old universe
G          Dm7           G     Dm7-G
Wonder who comes off the worse


[OUTRO:] G  Dm7   G  Dm7   G  Dm7   G
