Paddy - text

From his window he watches as people, come and go on their way.
C
Rushin to catch the train homewards, as he often did in his day.
G
He remembers the dark of the mornings, the days he worked in the rain.
G7
the good times the bad times the friends that the knew, he'll never see them
C
again.
G
At night when the streets are deserted, except for the take away signs

he thinks of the men that he worked with, on the buildings the roads and the
C
mines
G
the girl that he met in the galtee, he thought he might make her his own.
G7
Maybe if there was less drinkin', he wouldn't have wound up alone.

Chorus
F C
P is for powerful when put to the test, A is for always doin' your best,
F D G
D is for doin' if it can be done, and D is for drinkin' when work it is done
F C
Y is for yearnin' to see home again, proud to be Irish and hard workin' men
F G G7
Paddy remember though your day is done, you're the rock that England stands
C
on.
C G
He never explained just what happened, the years seemed to pass like a day,
G7 C
Was it the rain or the shovel, took the strength from his limbs away.
C G
Sometimes he thinks of the boreen, that led from his house to the lane.
G7 C
And the fields that he worked with his father, he'll never see them again.

Chorus
F C
P is for powerful when put to the test, A is for always doin' your best,
F D G
D is for doin' if it can be done, and D is for drinkin' when work it is done
F C
Y is for yearnin' to see home again, proud to be Irish and hard workin' men
F G
Paddy remember though your day is done, you're the rock that England stands
C
on.
D A
As he makes his way back to the shelter, rain starts to fall on the ground
D
A young man just in from Cork City, asks him where work can be found.
A
He said "son take a long look at Paddy, and remember what ever you do,
D
This broken old man that you're seein, was once a young man just like you"

Chorus
G D
P is for powerful when put to the test, A is for always doin' your best,
G A D
D is for doin' if it can be done, and D is for drinkin' when work it is done
G D
Y is for yearnin' to see home again, proud to be Irish and hard workin' men
G A
Paddy remember though your day is done, you're the rock that England stands
D
on.
