Off To Dublin In The Green:Abbey Tavern Singers.
#40 Adult Contemp. & #94 on Hot 100 in 1966.

#1.
D            A                                       D
I am a merry ploughboy and I ploughed the fields all day.
       A
Till a sudden thought came into my head, that I should 
      D
roam away.
D                A                                       D
For I'm tired of civilian life, since the day that I was born.
        A                                           D
So, Im off to join the I.R.A. and Im off tomorrow morn.

CHORUS:
D                               A
So, were off to Dublin' in the green, in the green,
                                 D
where the helmets glisten in the sun.
          A
Where the bayonets flash and the rifles crash to the
                   D
echo of a Thompson Gun.

#2.
D                     A                                D
Oh, I leave behind my old gray home, I leave behind my plough.
      A                                                        D
And I leave behind my old gray mare, for no more Ill need 'em now.
D                     A                           D
And I leave behind my Mary, shes the one that I adore.
      A                                                      D
And I wonder will she think of me, when she hears the rifles roar.

CHORUS:
D                               A
So, were off to Dublin' in the green, in the green,
                                 D
where the helmets glisten in the sun.
          A
Where the bayonets flash and the rifles crash to the
                   D
echo of a Thompson Gun.

#3.
D                      A                             D
Oh, some men fight for silver and some men fight for gold.
        A                                           D
But the I.R.A. are fighting for the land the Saxons stole.

CHORUS:
D                               A
So, were off to Dublin' in the green, in the green,
                                 D
where the helmets glisten in the sun.
          A
Where the bayonets flash and the rifles crash to the
                   D
echo of a Thompson Gun.

#4.
D                   A                           D
And when the war is over and dear old Ireland's free.
       A                                                    D
I will take her to the church to wed, a rebel's wife shell be.

CHORUS:
D                               A
So, were off to Dublin' in the green, in the green,
                                 D
where the helmets glisten in the sun.
          A
Where the bayonets flash and the rifles crash to the
                   D
echo of a Thompson Gun.


A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
