***THE SNAKE WITH EYES OF GARNET - by Shane MacGowan
from the album "The Snake"

The Snake With Eyes Of Garnet - as performed by Shane MacGowan and The Popes

     D              Bm
Last night as I lay dreaming
   D              Bm
My way across the sea
      D                 Bm
James Mangan brought me comfort
         G       D
With laudnum and poitin
                   Bm
He flew me back to Dublin
   D Bm
In 1819
D              Bm
To a public execution
      G                 D
Being held on Stephen's Green
    D                Bm
The young man on the platform
         D                  Bm
Held his head up and he did sing
         D                     Bm
Then he whispered hard into my ear
      G              D
As he handed me this ring

       D              Bm
If you miss me on the harbour
        D                  Bm
For the boat, it leaves at three
          D                  Bm
Take this snake with eyes of garnet
   G              D
My mother gave to me!
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/pogues/snake_with_eyes_of_garnet_crd.html ]
This snake cannot be captured
This snake cannot be tied
This snake cannot be tortured, or
Hung or crucified

It came down through the ages
It belongs to you and me
So pass it on and pass it on
'Till all mankind is free

If you miss me on the harbour
For the boat, it leaves at three
Take this snake with eyes of garnet
My mother gave to me"

He swung, his face went purple
A roar came from the crowd
But Mangan laughed and pushed me
And we got back on the cloud
He dropped me off in London
Back in this dying land
But my eyes were filled with wonder
At the ring still in my hand

If you miss me on the harbour
For the boat, it leaves at three
Take this snake with eyes of garnet
My mother gave to me!

And if you miss me on the harbour
For the boat, it leaves at three
Take this snake with eyes of garnet
My mother gave to me!
