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

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

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

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

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

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