[C]Oh, I woke me up this morning and [G]I heard a joyful song
 From the [F]throats of happy Irishmen, a[C] hundred thousand strong
 Shure it [G]was the Hibernian Brigade
 [D7]Lining up for to start the [G]big [G7]parade
 So I [C]fetched me Sunday bonnet and [G]the flag I love so well
 And I [F]bought meself a shamrock just [C]to wear in me lapel
 Don't [G]you know that today's March seventeen?
 It's the [D7]day for the wearing [G]of the [G7]green

It's a[C] great day for the [G]Irish, it's a great day [C]for fair
 The [D7]streets of New York are thick with Blarney
 For shure you'd think New York was Old [G]Killar[G7]ney
 It's a [C]great day for the [G]Shamrock, for the flags in [C]full ar[C7]ray
We're [F]feeling so inspirish, shure[C] because for all the Irish
 [G]It's a [C]great, great day

It's a great day for the Irish, it's a great day for fair
 Begosh, there's not a cop to stop a raiding
 Begorrah all the cops are out parading
 It's a great day for the Shamrock, for the flags in full array
And as we go a-swinging, every Irish heart is singing
 It's a great, great day
