15 Am Am
16 In the merry month of June, When first from home I started
17 Am G
18 Left the girls of Tuam, So sad and broken hearted
19 Am Am
20 Saluted Father dear, Kissed me darlin' Mother
21 Am G
22 And drank a pint of beer, Me grief and tears to smother
23 Am G Am G
24 Then off to reap the corn, Leave where I was born
25 Am G G G
26 Cut a stout blackthorn, To banish ghosts and goblin
27 Am G Am G
28 Bought a pair of brogues, Rattle over the bogs
29 Am G G G
30 Frightened all the dogs, On the rocky road to Dublin
31
32 Am G Am
33 One, Two, Three, Four, Five
34 Am Am
35 Hunt the hare and turn her down the rocky road
36 G Am G Am
37 And all the ways to Dublin, Whack fol la de da
38
39 Am Am
40 When in Mullingar that night, I rested limbs so weary
41 Am G
42 Started by daylight, Me spirits bright and early
43 Am Am
44 Took a drop o' pure, Keep me heart from sinking
45 Am G
46 That's a paddy's cure, Whenever he's on drinking
47 Am G Am G
48 To see the lassie's smile, Laughing all the while
49 Am G G G
50 At me curious style, Would set your heart to bubbling
51 Am G Am G
52 Asked me I was hired, Wages I required
53Am G G G
54 I was almost tired, On the rocky road to Dublin
55
56 Am G Am
57 One, Two, Three, Four, Five
58 Am Am
59 Hunt the hare and turn her down the rocky road
60 G Am G Am
61 And all the ways to Dublin, Whack fol la de da
62
63 Am Am
64 Well in Dublin next arrived, I thought it be a pity
65 Am G
66 To be so soon deprived, A view of that fine city
67 Am Am
68 Then I took a stroll, All among the quality
69 Am G
70 Me bundle it was stole, In a neat locality
71 Am G Am G
72 Something crossed me mind, When I looked behind
73 Am G G G
74 No bundle could I find, Upon me stick a wobbling
75 Am G Am G
76 Enquiring after the rogue, They said me Connacht brouge
77 Am G G G
78 Wasn't much in vogue, On the rocky road to Dublin
79
80 Am G Am
81 One, Two, Three, Four, Five
82 Am Am
83 Hunt the hare and turn her down the rocky road
84 G Am G Am
85 And all the ways to Dublin, Whack fol la de da
86
87 Am Am
88 Well, From there I got away, Me spirits never failing
89 Am G
90 Landed on the quay, Just as the ship was sailing
91 Am Am
92 Captain at me roared, Said that no room had he
93 Am G
94 When I jumped aboard, A cabin found for Paddy
95 Am G Am G
96 Down among the pigs, Played some hearty rigs
97 Am G G G
98 Danced some hearty jigs, The water round me bubblin'
99 Am G Am G
100 When off Holyhead, I wished meself was dead
101 Am G G G
102 Or, Better far instead, On the rocky road to Dublin
103
104 Am G Am
105 One, Two, Three, Four, Five
106 Am Am
107 Hunt the hare and turn her down the rocky road
108 G Am G Am
109 And all the ways to Dublin, Whack fol la de da
110
111 Am Am
112 Well, The boys of Liverpool, When we safely landed
113 Am G
114 Called meself a fool, I could no longer stand it
115 Am Am
116 Blood began to boil, Temper I was losing
117 Am G
118 Poor ould Erins Isle, They began abusing
119 Am G Am G
120 Hurrah me soul says I, Shillelagh I let fly
121 Am G G G
122 Some Galway boys were by, Saw I was a-hollerin'
123 Am G Am G
124 Then with a loud horray, They joined in the affray
125 Am G G G
126 We quickly cleared the way, For the rocky road to Dublin
127
128 Am G Am
129 One, Two, Three, Four, Five
130 Am Am
131 Hunt the hare and turn her down the rocky road
132 G Am G Am
133 And all the ways to Dublin, Whack fol la de daaaa
