Finnegan's Wake Ireland 1850s? Tim Fin ne gan lived in Walk in Street a gent le man I rish C Dm 4 2 might y odd. He had a tongue both rich and sweet and to G7 C rise in the world he car ried a hod. But F G7 C Tim had a touch o' the tip pler's way, with a love of the liq uor Am Em Am he was born, and to help him on with his work each day, he'd a Em Am Em drop o' the cray thur ev 'ry morn. Whack fol the da now F G7 C Chorus Am dance to your part ners, welt the floor, your trot ters shake. F C G Is n't it the truth I tell you? Lots of fun at Fin ne gan's Wake! Am F C G7 C One mornin' Tim was rather full, his head felt heavy which made him shake. He fell from a ladder and he broke his skull, and they carried him home his corpse to wake. They rolled him up in a nice clean sheet, and laid him out upon the bed, With a gallon of whisky at his feet, and a barrel of porter at his head. Chorus His friends assembled at the wake, and Mrs Finnegan called for lunch. First they brought in tay and cake, then pipes, tobacco and whisky punch. Biddy O'Brien began to cry, "Such a nice clean corpse did you ever see? Tim Mavourneen, why did you die?" "Arrah, hold your gob," said Paddy McGhee. Chorus Then Mattie O'Connor took up the job, "Oh, Biddy," says she,"you're wrong I'm sure." Biddy gave her a belt in the gob, and left her sprawling on the floor. Then the war did soon engage, 'twas woman to woman and man to man, Shelelaigh law was all the rage, and a row and a ruction soon began. Chorus Then Mickey Maloney ducked his head, when a noggin of whisky flew at him. It missed, and falling on the bed, the liquor scattered over Tim. Tim revives - see how he rises. Timothy rising from the bed, Said "Whirl your whisky around like blazes. Devil take my soul, do you thik I'm dead?" Chorus www.abcnotation.com/tunes
