Irish Rover – The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem
Tab’d by wompton

       G                         C        
In the year of our Lord eighteen hundred and six 
       G                          D 
We set sail from the Cobh quay of Cork 
        G                            C        
We were sailing away with a cargo of bricks 
        G          D           G
For the grand city hall in New York
        G                      D 
Twas an elegant craft, she was rigged fore and aft 
    G                   D 
And how the trade winds drove her 
        G                          Em            C
She had twenty-three masts and she stood several blasts 
         G                    D7 G  
And they called her the Irish Ro-ver

       G                       C        
We had one million bags of the best Sligo rags
       G                      D 
We had two million barrels of stones
       G                          C        
We had three million sides of old blind horses hides
       G            D          G
We had four million barrels of bone
       G                  D 
We had five million hogs, six million dogs
G                        D 
Seven million barrels of porter
       G                          Em          C
We had eight million bales of old nanny goats tails
       G                 D7 G  
In the hold of the Irish Ro-ver

          G                     C        
There was Barney McGee from the banks of the Lee
          G                 D 
There was Hogan from County Tyrone
          G                      C        
There was Johnny McGuirk who was scared stiff of work
      G             D           G
And a chap from Westmeath named Malone
          G                       D 
There was Slugger O'Toole who was drunk as a rule
    G                        D 
And fighting Bill Tracy from Dover
         G                        Em           C
And your man Mick McCann from the banks of the Bann
        G                    D7 G  
Was the skipper of the Irish Ro-ver

       G                           C        
We had sailed seven years when the measles broke out 
        G                         D 
And our ship lost it's way in the fog
         G                     C        
Then the whole of the crew was reduced down to two 
     G              D             G
Just myself and the captain’s old dog
    G                      D 
The ship struck a rock, oh Lord what a shock 
    G              D 
And nearly tumbled over
          G                         Em           C
It turned nine times around and the poor dog was drowned 
        G                 D7 G  
I'm the last of the Irish Ro-ver
