The Rare Ould Times  Flogging Molly

Intro: strum a D chord for two bars
[D]Raised on songs and [G]stor-[D]ies, heroes of reno[G]wn
Ah, the [D]passing tales and [G]glor-[D]ies that [A]once was Dublin town
The [D]hallowed halls and [G]hous-[D]es, the haunting childrens' [G]rhymes
That [D]once was part of [G]Dublin in the [A]rare ould [D]times
[D]Ring a ring a [G]ro-[D]sey, as the light de-[Bm]clines
I re-[D]member Dublin [G]city in the ra[A]re ould ti[D]mes
Tempo change
Well my [D]name it is Sean [G]Demp-[D]sey, as Dublin as can [G]be
Born [D]hard and late in [G]Pimli-[D]co, in a [A]house that ceased to be
(enter electric guitar)
By [D]trade I was a [G]coo-[D]per, lost out to redundan-[G]cy
Like my [D]house that fell to [G]progress, my [A]trade's a memo-[D]ry
And I [D]courted Peggy [G]Dig-[D]nam, as pretty as you [G]please
A [D]rogue and child of [G]Ma-[D]ry, from the [A]rebel Liberties
I [D]lost her to a [G]student [D]chap, with skin as black as [G]coal
When he [D]took her off to [G]Birmingham, she [A]took away my [D]soul
The [D]years have made me [G]bit-[D]ter, the gargle dims me [G]brain
Cause [D]Dublin keeps on [G]chang-[D]ing, and [A]nothing seems the same
The [D]Pillar and the [G]Met have [D]gone, the Royal long since pulled [G]down
As the [D]grey unyielding [G]concrete, makes a [A]city of my [D]town
(interlude, the chords are the same as the chorus ans a verse)
Fare thee [D]well sweet Anna [G]Li-[D]ffey, I can no longer [G]stay
And [D]watch the new glass [G]ca-[D]ges, that [A]spring up along the quay
My [D]mind's too full of [G]memo-[D]ries, too old to hear new [G]chimes
(slow here)
I'm a [D]part of what was [G]Dublin, in the [A]rare ould [D]times
(chorus 2x)
and thats that. it should be all correct, but if you find any problems email me.
