(Just the same as the verses)
Da fought the black and Tans
So did our Uncle Dan

We all have to walk to Cobh
A family of thriteen both young and old
Transport our poverty
To a room and a ditch 'cross the sea

Where they sang round Botnay Bay

finish with an open strum (no chords) - well, i think it is anyway, or if you prefer D1.
