MANY YOUNG MEN OF TWENTY SAID GOOGBYE 4/4 (Dubliners)

 

(C)Many young men of twenty said goodbye


All that long day


From break of dawn until the (G)sun was (C)high

(G)Many young men of twenty said good(C)bye

 

(C)My boy Jimmy went that day


(F)And the big ship (G)sailed away


Sailed away and left me here to (C)die


(G)Many young men of twenty said good(C)bye

 

 

I (C)met my love upon the mountain rim

The day he left
I knew

I bore a living (G)child of (C)him

I (G)knew I bore a living child of (C)him

 

(C)And the child was born to me

(F)Jimmy's gone a(G)cross the sea

Jimmy's gone and here alone am (C)I

(G)Many young men of twenty said good(C)bye

 

 

My (C)Jimmy said he'd sail across the sea


He swore his oath


He'd sail back one day and (G)marry (C)me


He'd (G)sail back one day and marry (C)me

 

(C)But my Jimmy let me down


(F)Now they mock me (G)in the town


Oh my Jimmy please come back to (C)me


(G)Oh my Jimmy please come back to (C)me

 

 

(C)Many young men of twenty said goodbye


All that long day


From break of dawn until the (G)sun was (C)high

(G)Many young men of twenty said good(C)bye

 

They (C)left the mountains and the glens


(F)The lassies and the (G)fine young men


I saw the tears of every girl and (C)boy


(G)Many young men of twenty said good(C)bye
