[C]Up to mighty London came an Irishman one [G]day,
as [C]the streets were paved with gold, [B]sure ev'ryone was
Singing [C]songs of Piccadilly, [B]Strand, and Leicester [E]Square,
'til [E7]Paddy got ex[D]cited, then he [D7]shouted
to them [G]there:
It's a [C]long way to Tipperary, it's a [F]long way to [C]go,
It's a long way to Tipperary to the [D]sweetest [D7]girl
Good[C]bye Piccadilly,[F] farewell Leicester [E7]Square!
It's a [C]long, long way to Tippe[F]ra[C]ry, but
[D]my [G]heart's [C]right there.
Paddy wrote a letter to his Irish Molly O',
saying, "Should you not receive it, write and let me know!
If I make
mistakes in spelling, Molly dear", said he,
"remember it's the pen, that's bad, don't lay the blame on me".
