       G                               D              G
'Twas down by Brannigan's Corner, one morning I did stray 
                           C            G
I met a fellow rebel, and to me he did say 
       G                           C           G
"We've orders from the captain to assemble at Dunbar 
    G                           D             G
But how are we to get there, without a motor car?" 

       G                                  D                  G
"Oh, Barney dear, be of good cheer, I'll tell you what we'll do 
                                       C         G
The specials they are plentiful, the I.R.A. are few 
                                 C           G
We'll send a wire to Johnson to meet us at Stranlar 
           G                                   D              G
And we'll give the boys a bloody good ride in Johnson's Motor Car 

       G                               D                G
When doctor Johnson heard the news he soon put on his shoes 
                                       C             G
He says this is an urgent case, there is no time to lose 
                                  C               G
He then put on his castor hat and on his breast a star 
       G                                       D              G
You could hear the din all through Glenfin of Johnson's Motor Car 

       G                                      D             G
But when he got to the railway bridge, some rebels he saw there 
                                       C               G
Old Johnson knew the game was up, for at him they did stare 
                              C               G
He said "I have a permit, to travel near and far" 
       G                               D                G
"To hell with your English permit, we want your motor car" 

       G                            D                  G
"What will my local brethren think, when they hear the news 
                                         C         G
My car it has been commandeered, by the rebels at Dunluce" 
                                       C                 G
"We'll give you a receipt for it, all signed by Captain Barr 
          G                                    D              G
And when Ireland gets her freedom, boy, you'll get your motor car" 

        G                          D                  G
Well we put that car in motion and filled it to the brim 
                                       C         G
With guns and bayonets shining which made old Johnson grim 
                                             C                G
And Barney hoisted a Sínn Fein flag, and it fluttered like a star 
       G                                     D              G
And we gave three cheers for the I.R.A. and Johnson's Motor Car
