Pigs Cant Swim

Irish Rovers

 GD
 I once had a pig that loved me.
 G
He lived in a shed in the country.
 C
In a middle class district of Dunfries.
 DG
 But a sad kind of pig was he.

Chorus:
 GD
 Pigs can't swim and pigs can't fly
 G
But Pigs can see the wind go by.
 D
Pigs make lovely household friends.
 G
When winter comes then summer ends.

 GD
 Each week that lofty beasty -
 G
Would beg with eyes so misty.
 C
To take him over to England.
 DG
 His life's dream to fulfill.

Chorus

 GD
 He wants to plunge into the channel
 G
Swim to France would be his gamble
 C
Florence Chadwick couldn't hold a candle
 DG
 To such a daring pig as he.

Chorus

(This verse sung in pigs perspective - silly falsetto)
 GD
 So then I came up to him askin'
 G
will our friendship not be lastin'
 C
and he told me I was graspin'
 DG
 and he needed to be free!

Chorus

 GD
 So will you take me there tomorrow
 G
In a pigs eye I said with sorrow
 C
So he drown himself in the bath tub (Naughty Boy)
 DG
 And I had pork chops with my tea!

Chorus

 GD
 Early in the morning
 G
so early in the morning
 C
so early in the morning
 DG
 before the break of day
