The Knock Song lyrics and guitar chords, Christy Moore Written by Christy about Knock airport which is near Charlestown Co. Mayo. Did N.A.T.O donate the dough me boys ?
Youtube Video Miracle Of Knock Christy Moore

At[D] the early age of[A] thirty eight,me[D] mother sent me west,
Get[D] up says she and get[A] a job,says[D] I I'll do me best,
[G]I pulled[D] on me welling[Em]tons to[A] march to Kiltimagh,
But I[D] took a wrong turn in[A] Charlestown and[D] ended up in Knock.
[2]
Once this quiet crossroads was a place of gentle prayer,
Where Catholics got induigent once or twice a year,
You could buy a pair of rosery beads or get your candles blessed,
If you had a guilty concience,you could get it off your chest.
[3]
Then came the priest from Partry father Horan was his name,
And since he's been appointed,Knock has never been the same.
'Begod says Jem,'tis eighty years since Mary was adout,'
Its time for another miracle,and he blew the candle out.
[Chorus]
[G]From[D] Fatima to[G] Bethlehem,[D]from Lourdes to Kiltimagh,
[D]Theres never beeb a[A] miracle like[D] the airport up in Knock.
[4]
The stalls once under canvas became religous supermarts,
With such a range of Godly goods they had top twenty charts,
While the airport opposition was destroyed by James trump card,
For centenary celebrations he got John Paul the twenty third.
[5]
We had the Blessed virgin here bold Jemesie did declare,
And John Paul the twenty thire appered just over there,
Now do you mean to tell me,he said in total shock,
That I am not intitled to an airport here in Knock.
[6]
T.D.s were lobbied and harassed with talk of promised votes,
And people who'd beeb loyal for years now spoke of changing coats,
Eternal damnation was threatened on the flock,
Who said it was abortive building airports up in Knock.
[7]
Now everyone is happy the miracle is complete
Father Horan has his runway,its eighteen thousand feet
All sorts of planes could land there,of that there's little doubt,
Its handy for the Yankies to keep the Russians out.
[8]
Did NATO donate the dough me boys did NATO donate the dough,
Did NATO donate the dough me girls did NATO donate the dough,
Did NATO donate the dough,the dough,did NATO donate the dough,
Eighteen thousant feet of runway is an auful long way to go.
