BOTANY BAY; Traditional Irish/Australian

NOTE: The key of D is my own personal choice.

NOTE2: It's quite fastforward, I'd recomend lissening to a youtube-cover to get the right tempo.

Note 3: I'm not really sureif the "E4" is called a E4, but you grab it like this:   

e|---0---|
B|---0---|
G|---1---|
D|---2---|
A|---0---|
E|---0---|

Intro:

D   Bm   G A D

D x4

Chorus:

D                         Bm         G               A      D
Farewell to your bricks and mortar, farewell to your dirty lies
D                         Bm                     E4                 
Farewell to your gangers and gang planks and to hell with your overtime
    D             Bm           G     A      D
The good ship Ragamuffin she's lying at the Quay
        D                     Bm
For to take oul Pat with his shovel on his back
  Bm---->
To the shores of Botany Bay

D x4
(Away........)

Same thing, but different Lyrics:

Verse 1:

I'm on my way down to the Quay where the ship at anchor lies
To command a gang of navvys that they told me to engage
I thought I'd drop in for a drink before I went away
For to take a trip on an emigrant ship
To the shores of Botany Bay

Chorus: (Farewell to your... etc etc)

Verse 2:

The boss came up this morning, he says "well Pat, you know
If you don't get your navvys out, I'm afraid you'll have to go"
So I asked him for my wages and demanded all my pay
For I told him straight, I'm going to emigrate
To the shores of Botany Bay

Chorus

Verse 3:

And when I reach Australia I'll go and look for gold
There's plenty there for the digging of, or so I have been told
Or else I'll go back to my trade and a hundred bricks I'll lay
Because I live for an eight hour shift
On the shores of Botany Bay

Chorus:

The End! (on D)

It really annoys me when the whole song isn’t tabbed out, and not all the lyrics are there either.
