Intro: |C G Am F| 6x




C               G
I'm an Irishman
                           Am
Leather weathered Irish skin
                        F           
Beard orange as the sunset over the flag
C
In the night sky we fly it in
G
Pride for the life we fight to live
Am
History, I write with it
Am
Spit it with the dialect
C
And this is a celebration of course
G
The green, white, orange
Am
And when they pulled up on that shore
F
First generation born
C
Toast to those that made it on a boat to New York
G
And when the English came the colonizer came
Am
They filled up bottles of gasoline, turned 'em into balls of flame
F
And hurled 'em to protect what's ours
C
Don't touch these lucky charms
G
Whole bunch of Irish screaming "Fuck the London Guard"
Am
I'm kidding not dissin' London, this bloody war
F
But go against the Irish and get a bloody jaw
C
Preaching nonviolence but reminds of the scars
G
And the bias, put a pint up everybody sing a song


Chorus:
C
We put our glass to the sky and lift up
Am
And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya
F
So raise a pint for the people that aren't with us
Am
And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya

Same the rest of the time

We put our glass to the sky and lift up

And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya

So raise a pint for the people that aren't with us

And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya

From New England to New Brunswick

Galway to Dublin

A rebellious nation of freckled face hustlers

Heart, blue collared workers and family

My heritage, proud to be a Haggerty

Now with whiskey in our veins

Claiming were the bravest men

I drank Old Crow, but pretended it was Jameson

Dad sipped Guiness, I sipped Old English

'Til he sat me down at 16 and said "boy, this is what a beer is"

I put down the drink, couldn't drink like a gentleman

That doesn't mean I can't make a drinking song for the rest of 'em

Challenge us in football, yeah we might lose

But don't put us next to a bar stool

We take the history, script it in song

Light the torch then you pass it on


That's right I said, lineage through the rhythm we script it from the palm

and we give til' Ireland is on

Bottoms Up

We put our glass to the sky and lift up

And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya

So raise a pint for the people that aren't with us

And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya


We put our glass to the sky and lift up

And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya

So raise a pint for the people that aren't with us

And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya
