It was 1962, I was two years out of school
       F                            F              G
When I got on board a boat that was bound for Liverpool
    F                      F            G
The day we sailed away I remember it so well
       F                 Am       G              F
Took a look at the North Wall and bid a fond farewell

       F                       F            F
It's a hard thing to leave the land of your childhood
                          Am            F
Touched by the rivers and kissed by the sea
    F          G                F            F
The places you played with your childhood companions
   F              F           G         F
To leave dear old Ireland and Mother Mo Chro?

           F                        F       F
Though I'm going far away and I may never return here
                                Am          F
There's one thing I always will keep within me
F          G       F         F
Deep in my heart a furious devotion
    F           F           G         F
The love of old Ireland and Mother Mo Chroi

           F                    F       F
Though I'm going away and I may never return here
                                      Am          F
There is always one thing that I will keep within me
F          G       F       F
Deep in my heart a furious devotion
    F           F           G         F
The love of old Ireland and Mother Mo Chroi

On the top of the Pentonville Road I saw the sun setting
                                   Am           F
The town laid out before me looked beautiful to me
F                 G            F                 F
Away from all the sighing, the suffering and the dying
  F              F           G             F
I dreamed of the future, the young and the free

        F                               F              F
But the years they go by quickly, now I know I can't remain here
                                        Am         F
Where each day brings me closer to that final misery
   F                      G                      F                     F
My kids will never scrape shit round here, and I won't die crying in a pint of beer
    F             F           G         F
I'm going back to Ireland and Mother Mo Chro?
