Every Dog Has Its Day  Flogging Molly

Top o' the morning to ye! This is my first tab I've submitted; it's a
ridiculously simple song by the greatest, most high-energy band ever. As such,
it must be played furiously (except for a few parts for contrast) with lightning
quick down-up strumming. I'll add a few notes on dynamics, but this is quite a
simple song. Enjoy it!
Flogging Molly
Standard tuning
Verse 1:
(slow, 3/4 time) C G C G
Well, Iā??ve drunk to drown on every ocean Iā??ve been
Lake Tangan[C]yika,[G] where the crocodiles s[Dm]wim[G]
(fast 4/4) C G C G
Halifax, Nova Scotia to Van Diemenā??s land
Well I drank with the S[C]ultan [G] down the Suez Ca[Dm]n*l[G]
Cause every d[C]og has itā??s[G] day
Like every w[C]oman, she gets her own w[G]ay
And if thereā??s a[C] ship that sails t[G]onight
Iā??ll captain that,[F] too... just to be there with[C] you[G] [C] [G]
Verse 2:
Well there was old Jerry R[C]ooney, [G] who was mad as a m[C]ule[G]
Spillblood Mal[C]oney [G] had a head like one, t[Dm]oo[G]
That night on the br[C]idge [G] with my shovel in h[C]and[G]
Well he threatened to k[C]ill me [G] Iā??m sure he picked the wron[Dm]g man[G]
Verse 3:
Well there was mutiny in L[C]agos [G] aboard the mean ship Skond[C]i[G]
Ten or twelve days in pr[C]ison [G] till the bastards set me f[Dm]ree
McCl[G]oskey, youā??re free
[C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [Dm] [G]  
[C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [Dm]  
Verse 4:
(slow 3/4) C G C G
Now I love the sea, and she wants me back
So I leave this olā??[C] harbo[G]r with the wind at m[Dm]e back[G]
(very slow) C G C G
Goodbye mother Theresa I hope the kids settle down
I must head for the Ch[C]inas [G] Pray to God I donā??t [Dm]drown[G]
End on C chord
That's the whole song. Ideally you'd have drums, fiddle, and mandolin to fill
out the sound a bit, but this is a wonderful song as it is. Remember to pick up
the pace for the ending choruses, and have fun with it!
