Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm
In the merry month of May from my home I started
Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm C chordC
Left the girls of Tuam-nearly broken-hearted
Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm
Saluted Father dear kissed my darlin' Mother
Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm C chordC
Drank a pint of beer my grief and tears to smother
Dm chordDm C chordC Dm chordDm C chordC
Then off to reap the corn and leave where I was born
Dm chordDm C chordC C chordC
I cut a stout blackthorn to banish ghost and goblin
Dm chordDm C chordC Dm chordDm C chordC
In a brand-new pair of brogues I rattled o'er the bogs
Dm chordDm C chordC C chordC
And frightened all the dogs on the rocky road to Dublin
(AA) (CC) (DmDm)
One two three four five

Chorus:
Dm chordDm
hunt the hare and turn her Down the rocky road
C chordC Am chordAm C chordC Dm chordDm
and all the ways to Dublin Whack fol-lol-de-ra

Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm
In Mullingar that night I rested limbs so weary
Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm C chordC
Started by daylight next morning light and airy
Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm
Took a drop of the pure to keep my heart from sinking
Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm C chordC
That's an Paddy d cure whene'er he's on for drinking
Dm chordDm C chordC Dm chordDm C chordC
To see the lasses smile laughing all the while
Dm chordDm C chordC C chordC
At me curious style 'twould set your heart a-bubbling
Dm chordDm C chordC Dm chordDm C chordC
They ax'd if I was hired the wages I required
Dm chordDm C chordC C chordC
Till I was almost tired of the rocky road to Dublin
(AA) (CC) (DmDm)
One two three four five

Chorus

Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm
In Dublin next arrived I thought it such a pity
Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm C chordC
To be so soon deprived a view of that fine city
Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm
Then I took a stroll out among the quality
Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm C chordC
My bundle it was stole in a neat locality
Dm chordDm C chordC Dm chordDm C chordC
Something crossed me mind then I looked behind
Dm chordDm C chordC C chordC
No bundle could I find upon me stick a-wobblin'
Dm chordDm C chordC Dm chordDm C chordC
Enquiring for the rogue they said me Connaught brogue
Dm chordDm C chordC C chordC
Wasn't much in vogue on the rocky road to Dublin
(AA) (CC) (DmDm)
One two three four five

Chorus

Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm
From there I got away me spirits never failing
Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm C chordC
Landed on the quay as the ship was sailing
Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm
Captain at me roared said that no room had he
Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm C chordC
When I jumped aboard a cabin found for Paddy
Dm chordDm C chordC Dm chordDm C chordC
Down among the pigs I played some funny rigs
Dm chordDm C chordC C chordC
Danced some hearty jigs the water round me bubblin'
Dm chordDm C chordC Dm chordDm C chordC
When off to Holyhead I wished meself was dead
Dm chordDm C chordC C chordC
Or better far instead on the rocky road to Dublin
(AA) (CC) (DmDm)
One two three four five

Chorus

Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm
The boys of Liverpool when we safely landed
Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm C chordC
Called meself a fool I could no longer stand it
Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm
Me blood began to boil temper I was losin'
Dm chordDm (C chordC) Dm chordDm C chordC
Poor old Erin's isle they began abusin'
Dm chordDm C chordC Dm chordDm C chordC
Hurrah my soul says I let my shillelagh fly
Dm chordDm C chordC C chordC
Some Galway boys came by saw I was a hobblein
Dm chordDm C chordC Dm chordDm C chordC
Then with a loud Hurray they joined in the affray
Dm chordDm C chordC C chordC
We quickly cleared the way for the rocky road to Dublin
(AA) (CC) (DmDm)
One two three four five

Chorus
