Rare Old Mountain Dew Chords
***Rare Old Mountain Dew - Traditional
from the "Irish Rover" single

Rare Old Mountain Dew - as perfomed by The Pogues & The Dubliners

(these lyrics are from a more traditional version and will
vary slightly from the version by the Pogues and the Dubliners)

      F                Bb
Where grasses grow and waters flow
     F             C
In a free and easy way,
    F                      Bb
But give me enough of that rare old stuff
       F         C      F
That's made near Galway Bay.
And policemen all from Donegal,
Sligo and Leitrim too,
      F                          Bb
We'll give them a slip and we'll take a sip
       F         C        F
Of the rare ould Mountain Dew.


Hi the dithery idle loo, ditheri oodle idle loo
dithery oo di dithery i day
Hi the dither idlo loo, ditheri oodle idle loo
Dithery oo di dithery i day

At the top of the hill there's a neat little still,
Where the smoke curls up in the sky;
By the smoke and the smell you can plainly tell
That there's poteen brewing nearby;
It fills the air with an odor rare
And betwixt both me and you,
When home we roll we'll take a bowl
Or a bucket of the Mountain Dew.


Now learned men who use the pen
They sing your praises high
That sweet poteen from Ireland green
Distilled from wheat and rye;
Throw away your pills, it will cure all ills
Pagan or Christian or Jew
Take off your coat and grease your throat
With the rare ould Mountain Dew

About the artist behind Rare Old Mountain Dew Chords:

The Pogues are a band of mixed Irish and English background, playing traditional Irish music with influences from punk rock, formed in 1982 and fronted by Shane MacGowan. They reached international prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s, until MacGowan left the band in 1991 due to drinking problems. They continued with first Joe Strummer and then Spider Stacy on vocals before breaking up in 1996.[1] The band began performing together again in 2001, though they have yet to record new music.

Their politically-tinged music was influenced by The Clash,[2] yet used traditional Irish instruments such as the tin whistle, banjo, cittern, mandolin, accordion, and others. In the later incarnations of the band, after the departure of Shane MacGowan, rock instruments such as the electric guitar would become more prominent. The first of The Pogues' albums, Red Roses for Me, borrows much from the punk tradition of MacGowan's previous band The Nipple Erectors (later dubbed "The Nips").

The Pogues were founded in King's Cross,[3] a district of North London, in 1982 as Pogue Mahone—pogue mahone being the Anglicisation of the Irish póg mo thóin, meaning "kiss my arse".[4]

The band specialised in Irish folk music, often playing with the energy of the punk rock scene in which several of the members had their roots.
