In my [G]memor[D/FThe [C]town that [G]I have loved so [D]well
Where our [G]school played [D/FAnd we [C]laughed through the [G]smoke [D]and the [G]smell
Going [C]home in the [D]rain, running [G] up the [G/FPast the [C]jail [C/B]and [Am7]down behind the [D]fountain
Those were [G]happy [D/FIn the [C]town I [G]loved [D]so [G]well

In the [G]early [D/FCalled the [C]women from [G]Creggan, the Moor and the [D]Bog
While the [G]men on the [D/FFed the [C]children and [G]then [D]trained the [G]dog
And when [C]times got [D]tough there was [G]just a[G/FBut they [C]saw [C/B]it [Am7]through without com[D]plaining
For [G]deep in[D/FIn the [C]town I [G]loved [D]so [G]well

There was [G]music [D/FLike a [C]language that [G]we all could under[D]stand
I re[G]member the [D/FAnd I [C]played in a [G]small [D]pickup [G]band
There I [C]spent my [D]youth and to [G]tell you [G/FI was [C]sad [C/B]to [Am7]leave it all be[D]hind me
For I [G]learned about [D/FIn the [C]town I [G]loved [D]so [G]well

But when [G]I re[D/FTo [C]see how a [G]town could be brought to its [D]knees
By the [G]armoured [D/FAnd the [C]gas that hangs [G]on to [D]every [G]tree
Now the [C]army's in[D]stalled by that [G]old gas[G/FAnd the [C]damned [C/B]barbed [Am7]wire gets higher and [D]higher
With their [G]tanks and their [D/FTo the [C]town I [G]loved [D]so [G]well

Now the [G]music's [D/FFor their [C]spirit's been [G]bruised, never [D]broken
They will [G]not for[D/FOn to[C]morrow and [G]peace [D]once a[G]gain
For what's [C]done is [D]done and what's [G]won [G/FAnd what's [C]lost [C/B]is [Am7]lost and gone for[D]ever
I can [G]only [D/FIn the [C]town I [G]loved [D]so [G]well
