Quare Things In Dublin Chords

Submitted by Dotsey

Words & Music by Brian Warfield

Comical look at the strange things in Dublin and about the clock in Rathmines
and another one at the Barracks on the South Circular Road with four faces -
each one telling a different time. The song says there are people like the clock.

  C   G   D7   G
 There's quare things in Dublin between Howth and Crumlin
 C            G             Am          D
 Down in Ringsend there's a five legged cat
 And a three legged donkey, a two headed monkey
         C          G             D                G
 There's nothing so quare as this four faced old clock.
 Verse 1
 There's a clock in old Dublin that stands on a steeple
 C          G              Am       D
 Proud and erect with four faces so tall
 While one of them says you are late it's deceiving
     C         G           D          G
 The other one says it's a quarter to four
                          C         G          D
 And you run down the road and he grins as you hurry
      G              C           G            D
 When just round the corner you look in surprise
 It's not quite the same as it was on the last street
 C           G              D7           G
 This bloody black-guard is telling me lies
 Verse 2
 There's a half hour to spare now how will I kill it
 I'll nip up the road hop in for a jar
 With the chimes of four bells I look back in amazement
 His other side it's gone past the hour
 There's a lesson in life, to adopt and interpret
 It applies to all people regardless their race
 Oh don't put your trust or faith in a person
 If sometimes they seem to have more than one face
