Lorca's Novena  The Pogues

***Lorca's Novena - by Shane MacGowan
from the album "Hell's Ditch"
Lorca's Novena - as performed by The Pogues
Intro; E (bass plays E E EF EF riff each bar)
[E]Ignacio lay dying in the sand
A single red rose clutched in a dying hand
[Am]An' the women wept to see their hero die
[G]And the big black birds gathered in the sky
Mother of all our joys, mother of all our sorrows
Intercede with him tonight
For all of [D]our to[G]morrows
The years went by and then the killers came
And took the men and marched them up the hill of pain
And Lorca the faggot poet they left till last
Blew his brains out with a pistol up his arse
Mother of all our joys, mother of all our sorrows
Intercede with him tonight
For all of our tomorrows
Solo guitar over E
The killers came to mutilate the dead
But ran away in terror to search the town instead
But Lorca's corpse, as he had prophesied just walked away
And the only sound was the women in the chapel praying
Mother of all our joys, mother of all our sorrows
Intercede with him tonight
For all of our tomorrows
Gob-iron solo over G
End on E
