Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore

           D                                                               CG         D
From Derry quay, we sailed away, on the 23rd of May
                 G               D                                                                            C
We were taken on board by a pleseant crew bound for Americay.
Fresh water we did take on, five thousand gallons or more
In case we'd run short going to New York,
          C                      G                  D
Far away from the Shamrock shore.

      D                                                              C                 G        D
So fare thee well, sweet Liza dear, likewize unto Derry town
        G                D                                                                                                   C
And twice farewell to my comrades brave, who dwell on that sainted ground.
   G            D                                                                              C
If fame or fortune do favour me, and I have money in store,
I'll go back and I'll wed the sweet lassie I left
      C                          G                 D
On Paddy's green shamrock shore.

We sailed three days and were all sea sick,
Not a man on board was free.
We were all confined unto our bunks,
And no one to pity poor me.
No father kind or mother dear
to lift up my head it was sore.
Which makes me think more on the lassie I left
On Paddy's green shamrock shore.


We safely reached the other side,
After fifteen and twenty days.
We were taken as passengers by a man,
And led round in six different ways.
So each of us drunk a parting glass,
In case we'd meet no more.
And we bad farewell to old Ireland,
And Paddy's green shamrock shore.
