If You Ever Go to Dublin Town  The Dubliners

If you ever go t[A]o Dublin town
[A]In A hundred years or so
[D]Inquire for in [A]Baggot Street
[A]And what is was like to [E]know
[A]O he was the queer one
[A]Fol do did dil [D]li [A]do
[A]He was a queer one
[E]I tell [A]you
[A]My great-grandmother knew him well,
[A]He asked her to come and call On him in his
[D]flat and she [A]giggled at the thought
[A]Of a young girl's lovely f[E]all.
[A]O he was dangerous,
[A]Fol do did dil [D]li [A]do
[A]He was dangerous,
[E]And I tell [A]you
[A]On Pembroke Road look out for my ghost,
[A]Dishevelled with shoes untied,
[D]Playing through the railings with [A]little children
[A]Whose children have long since [E]died.
[A]O he was a nice man,
[A]Fol do did dil [D]li [A]do
[A]He was a nice man
[E]And I tell y[A]ou
[A]Go into a pub and listen well
[A]If my voice still echoes there,
[D]Ask the men what their g[A]randsires thought
[A]And tell them to answer f[E]air,
[A]O he was eccentric,
[A]Fol do did dil [D]li [A]do
[A]He was eccentric
[E]And I tell y[A]ou
[A]He had the knack of making men feel
[A]As small as they really were
[D]Which meant as great as [A]God had made them
[A]But as malesl they disliked his a[E]ir.
[A]O he was a proud one,
[A]Fol do did dil [D]li [A]do
[A]He was a proud one
[E]And I tell [A]you
[A]If ever you go to Dublin town
[A]In a hundred years or so
[D]Sniff for my perso-[A]nality,
[A]Is it Vanity's vapour n[E]ow?
[A]O he was a vain one,
[A]Fol do did dil [D]li [A]do
[A]He was a vain one
[E]And I tell [A]you
[A]I saw his name with a hundred more
[A]In a book in the library,
[D]It said he had never f[A]ully achieved
[A]His potentiali-[E]ty.
[A]O he was slothful,
[A]Fol do did dil [D]li [A]do
[A]He was slothful
[E]And I tell [A]you
[A]He knew that posterity had no use
[A]For anything but the soul,
[D]The lines that speak the [A]passionate heart,
[A]The spirit that lives a[E]lone.
[A]O he was a lone one,
[A]Fol do did dil [D]li [A]do
[A]O he was a lone one,
[E]And I tell [A]you
[A]O he was a lone one,
[A]Fol do did dil [D]li [A]do
[A]Yet he lived happily
[E]And I tell [A]you
