Muirsheen Durkin  The Dubliners

Basically the whole song just goes C G F C.
(You can omit the F if you like)
Intro (flutes): C G F C x4
VERSE I:
 
 --------

In the [C]days I went a [G]courtin',
I was [F]never tired re[C]sortin'.
To an [C]ale house or a [G]playhouse,
And [F]many's the house be[C]sides
But I [C]told me brother [G]Seamus,
I'd go [F]off and be right [C]famous,
And I [C]never would re[G]turn again,
Until I [F]roamed the w[C]orldwide.
CHORUS:
 
 -------

[C]Goodbye, Muirsheen [G]Durkin,
Sure I'm [F]sick and tired of [C]workin'
No [C]more I'll dig for [G]praties,
And no [F]longer I'll be [C]fooled
As [C]sure as me name is [G]Carney,
I'll be [F]off to Cali[C]forny
Where ins[C]tead of digging [G]praties,
I'll be [F]digging lumps of [C]gold.
Inst. (flutes): C G F C x1
VERSE II:
 
 ---------

I've [C]courted girls in [G]Blarney,
in Kan[F]turk and in [C]Killarney
In passage and in [G]Queenstown,
that [F]is the Cobh of [C]Cork.
Good[C]bye to all this [G]pleasure,
I'll be [F]off to take me [C]leisure
And the [C]next time that you'll [G]hear from me,
will be a [F]letter from New [C]York.
CHORUS:
 
 -------

[C]Goodbye, Muirsheen [G]Durkin,
I'm [F]sick and tired of [C]workin'
No more I'll dig for [G]praties,
And no [F]longer I'll be [C]fooled
As sure as me name is [G]Carney,
I'll be [F]off to Cali[C]forny
Where instead of digging [G]praties,
I'll be [F]digging lumps of [C]gold.
VERSE III:
 
 ----------

[C]Goodbye to the [G]girls at home,
I'm [F]going far across the [C]foam.
To [C]try and make me [G]fortune,
in [F]far Ameri[C]kay.
There's [C]gold and jewels and [G]plenty,
For the [F]poor and for the [G]gentry
And [C]when I return [G]again,
I [F]never more will [C]say:
CHORUS:
 
 -------

[C]Goodbye, Muirsheen [G]Durkin,
Sure I'm [F]sick and tired of [C]workin'
No [C]more I'll dig for [G]praties,
And no [F]longer I'll be [C]fooled
As [C]sure as me name is [G]Carney,
I'll be [F]off to Cali[C]forny
Where ins[C]tead of digging [G]praties,
I'll be [F]digging lumps of [C]gold.
Inst.: C G F C to fadeout.
