       G                                 C                   D
Oh the night that Patty Murphy died is a night I'll never forget
G                    G/F#                  C               D  
Some of the boys got loaded drunk and they ain't got sober yet
   G                                        C               D
As long as a bottle was passed around every man was feeling gay
Oh Leary came with a bagpipe, some music for to play

G                            C                 D
That's how they showed their respect for Patty Murphy
G                            C                D
That's how they showed their honour and their pride
G                                          C             D
They said it was a sinner's shame and they winked at one another
G         G/F#         Em        D        C         D      G
And every drink in the place was full the night Pat Murphy died

G         G/F#         Em        D        C         D      G  (x2)

As Mrs. Murphy sat in the corner, pouring out her grief
Kelly and his gang came tearing down the street
They went into an empty room and a bottle of whisky stole
They put the bottle with the corpse to keep that whisky cold

About 2 o'clock in the morning after emptying the jug
Doyle does up the icebox lit the sea for Patty's mug (?)
He stopped the clock to Mrs. Murphy couldn't see the time
And at a quarter after 2 we argued it was 9


Solo (x2):
This isn't totally correct but it's the best I could get.

Well they stopped the hearse on George Street outside some damn saloon
They all went in at half past 8 and staggered out at noon
They went up to the graveyard so holy and sublime
Found out when they got there they left the corpse behind
