Nothing But The Same Old Story

Paul Brady

 EmCG
 I was just about nineteen  
 CDG
When I landed on their shore
 DBm7
With my eyes big as headlights  
 CDC
Like the thousands and thousands who came before
 G
I was going to be something
 Bm7CDG
smiled at the man scrutinising my face
 DEmAEmA
As I stepped down off the gangway           

Came down to their city
Where I worked for many's the year
Built a hundred houses
Must've pulled half a million pints of beer
Living under suspicion
Putting up with the hatred and fear in their eyes
You can see that your nothing but a murderer
In their eyes, we're nothing but a bunch of murderers

Chorus
 EmCGCDG
 Hey Johnny, can't wait 'til Saturday night    
 DBm7
Got a thirst that's raging  
 CDC
Know a place where we can put that right
 GBm7
Wash away the confusion  
 CD
Hose down this fire inside
 G
But look out!
 DEm
I'll tear you into pieces if you cross me

I'm sick of watching them break up
Every time some bird brain puts us down
Making jokes on the radio
Guess it helps them all drown out the sound
Of the crumbling foundations
Any fool can see the writing on the wall
But they just don't believe that it's happening

There's a crowd says I'm alright
Say they like my turn of phrase

Take me round to their parties
Like some dressed up monkey in a cage
And I play my accordian
Oh, but when the wine seeps through the facade
It's nothing but the same old story
Nothing but the same old story

Chorus

Got a brother in Boston
Says he'll send me on the fare
Just wrote me a letter
Making out that he's cleaning up out there
Two cars in the driveway
Summer house way down on the Cape
And I know that he's fix me up in the morning

I've been thinking about it
But it seems so far to go
People say in the winter
You'd get lost underneath the snow
And there's this girl from my home place
We've been planning to move back and give it a try
So I never got around to going
That's why I never got around to going

Chorus

Wow! Now there are TWO Paul Brady songs out there! From the 1981 album
"Hard Station" (Mercury #834 696-2. sell your car, fly to Dublin, buy it!)
but also on the US-available 1992 compilation "Songs and Crazy Dreams"
(Fontana #314 512 397-2). This song is about the Irish experience in
England.I play it as described, although playing with the record requires a
capo on the 2nd fret.
