The Luck of the Irish  John Lennon

The Luck Of The Irish chords
John Lennon 1972 (Sometime In New York City)
[G]  
If you [G]had the [C]luck of the [G]Irish
You'd be [Bm]sorry and [C]wish you were [D]dead
You should [G]have the [C]luck of the [G]Irish
And you'd [D]wish you was [D7]English in[G]stead!
A thousand years of [C]torture and [G]hunger
Drove the [Bm]people a[C]way from their [D]land
A [G]land full of [C]beauty and [G]wonder
Was [D]raped by the [D7]British bri[G]gands! [D]God[G]damn! [D]God[G]damn!
If you could keep [C]voices like [G]flowers
There'd be [C]shamrock all over the [G]world
If you could drink [C]dreams like [G]Irish streams
Then the [C]world would be high as the [D7]mountain of [G]morn
In the 'Pool they [C]told us the [G]story
How the [Bm]English di[C]vided the [D]land
Of the [G]pain, and the [C]death and the [G]glory
And the [D]poets of [D7]auld Eire[G]land
If we could make [C]chains with the [G]morning dew
The [C]world would be like Galway [G]Bay
Let's [C]walk over rainbows like [G]leprechauns
The [C]world would be one big [D7]Blarney [G]Stone
Why the hell are the [C]English there [G]anyway?
As they [Bm]kill with [C]God on their [D]side
Blame it [G]all on the [C]kids in the [G]IRA
As the [D]bastards co[D7]mmit geno[G]cide! [D]Aye! [G]Aye! [D]Geno[G]cide!
If you had the luck of the Irish
You'd be [Bm]sorry and [C]wish you were [D]dead
You should [G]have the [C]luck of the [G]Irish
And you'd [D]wish you was [D7]English in[G]stead!
Yes you'd [D]wish you was [D7]English in[G]stead!
