THE WOLFE TONES
BIG STRONG MAN
Traditional, Arranged by The Wolfe Tones

This is a song which was made famous all over the world
through the Irish (traitors) in the British army. 
 
 
 Verse 1
          G                                                 D
 Have you heard about the big strong man; He lives in a caravan
                                                 D7         
 Have you heard about the Jeffery Johnson fight; oh what a hell of a fight
 G                                                                                D
 You can take all the heavyweights you got; we got a lad who can beat the whole lot
                                                                      G
 He used to ring the bells in the bellfry; now he's gonna fight Jack Dempsey

 Chorus
 G
 was me brother Sylvest (whats he got)
                                D
 a row of forty medals on his chest (big chest)
                                                 G
 He killed fifty bad men in the west he knows no rest
    
 think of the man hell's fire don't push just shove plenty of room for you and me.
             G
 He's got an arm, like a leg (a ladys leg)
                                      D
 and a punch that would sink a battle ship (big ship)
                                                          G
 it takes all the army and the navy to put the wind up Sylvest
 
 
 Verse 2
 
 He thought he'd take a trip to Italy; he thought that he'd go by sea.
 He hoped off the harbour in New York; he swan like a man-made cork
 He saw the Lusitania is distress; (What he do) Put the Lusitania on his chest,
 He drank all the water in the sea; Then he walked all the way to Italy.
 
 Chorus...

 Verse 3

 He thought he'd take a trip to old Japan; They turned out the whole brass band
 He played every instrument they'd got; Like a lad sure he beat the whole lot.
 Now the old church bells will ring (hells bells); The old church choir will sing (hells choir)
 They all turned out to say farewell, To my big brother Sylvest.

 Chorus...
