Pair Of Brown Eyes Chords

   
***A Pair Of Brown Eyes - by Shane MacGowan
from the album "Rum Sodomy & The Lash"

A Pair Of Brown Eyes - as perfomed by The Pogues

      G                             Am               C
One summer evening drunk to hell I sat there nearly lifeless
     G                                    C           Am
An old man in the corner sang where the waterlilies grow
     G                           Am                  C
And on the jukebox Johnny sang about a thing called love
          G           Am
and it's how are you kid
      C          G
and whats your name
     C                    Am
and how would you bloody know

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/pogues/pair_of_brown_eyes_crd.html ]
In blood and death 'neath a screaming sky
I lay down on the ground
And the arms and legs of other men
Were scattered all around
Some cursed some prayed some prayed then cursed
Then prayed and bled some more
And the only thing that I could see
        G             Am             C        G
Was a pair of brown eyes that was looking at me
     G             Am             C        G
But when we got back labelled parts one to three
        G             Am             C        G
There was no pair of brown eyes waiting for me
        G       Am       C           G
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
        G       Am       C           G
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
        G       Am       C           G
And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go
        C             Am
For a pair of brown eyes
        C      D      G
For a pair of brown eyes

I looked at him he looked at me all I could do was hate him
While Ray and Philomena sang of my elusive dream
I saw the streams the rolling hills where his brown eyes were waiting
And I thought about a pair of brown eyes that waited once for me

So drunk to hell I left the place sometimes crawling sometimes walking
A hungry sound came across the breeze so I gave the walls a talking
And I heard the sounds of long ago from the old canal
And the birds were whistling in the trees where the wind was gently laughing

Chorus
