The Old Alarm Clock  The Dubliners

[C]When first I came to London In the [G]year of [C]39
The ci[F]ty looked so wonderfu[C]l, and the girls were so Divi[G]ne
But the copp[F]ers got suspicious, and[C] they soon gave me the knoc[G]k
I was cha[C]rged with being the owner, of an [G]old alarm c[C]lock
Well next morning down by Marlborough Street, I caused no
little[C] stir
The I.[F]R.A were b[C]usy and a t[G]elephone did burr
Says the judge[F] I'm going to c[C]harge you, with the [G]possession of this machine.
And I'm al[C]so going to charge you, with the[G] wearing of the
[C]Well says I to him, your honor, if you g[G]ive me half a [C]chance
I'll [F]show you how me [C]small machine can make the peelers [G]dance
Well it ti[F]cks away p[C]olitely, 'till you get an awful sho[G]ck
And it tic[C]ks away the gellignite, on me[G] old alarm clo[C]ck
[C]O the judge says listen here my man and I'l[G]l tell you of a p[C]lan
For y[F]ou and all your[C] countrymen I d[G]o net give a damn
Well the only[F] time you'll[C] take is mine, ten [G]years in Dartmoor dock
And you [C]can count it by the ticking, of your [G]old alarm clo[C]ck.
[C]Well this lonely Dartmoor City would put [G]many in the ji[C]gs
The cel[F]l it isn't prett[C]y and it isn't ve[G]ry big
Sure long[F] ago I'd have[C] left the place, if I had onl[G]y got,
Ah me coupl[C]e of sticks of gelignite and me[G] old alarm cl[C]ock
