Irish Pub

by The High Kings
Well [Em] you walk into a city street, you [G] could be in Pe [D] ru
And you [Em] hear a distant calling and you [D] know it's meant for [Bm] you,
And you [Em] drop what you were doing
and you [G] join the merry [D] mob,
And [Em] before you know just where you are,
you're [Dsus2] in an Irish [Em] pub.

( Chorus
They've [G] got one in Honalulu; they've got one in Moscow too,
They've got [Em] four of them in Sydney and a [D] couple in Katmandoo
So [Em] whether you sing or pull a pint
you'll [G] always have a [D] job,
'Cause [Em] whereever you go around the world
you'll [Dsus2] find an Irish [Em] pub. )

Now the design is fairly simple and it usually works the same,
You'll have ''Razor Houghton'' scoring in the Ireland - England game
And you know you're in an Irish pub the minute you're in the door,
For a couple of boys with bodhrans will be murdering Christy Moore.


Now the owner is Norwegian and the manager comes from Cork,
And the lad that's holding up the bar says 'Only Eejits Work'
He was born and bred in Bolton but his mammy's from Kildare,
And he's going to make his fortune soon and move to County Clare.


Now it's time for me to go I have to catch me train,
So I'll leave ye sitting at the bar and face the wind and rain,
For I'll have that pint you owe me, if I'm not gone on the dry,
When we meet next week in Frankford in the fields of Athenry.

(Chorus X2)
