The Luck Of The Irish chords
John Lennon  1972  (Sometime In New York City)

G

G       C           G
If you had the luck of the Irish
         Bm        C             D
You'd be sorry and wish you were dead
           G        C           G
You should have the luck of the Irish
          D            D7        G
And you'd wish you was English instead!

C           G
A thousand years of torture and hunger
          Bm      C              D
Drove the people away from their land
  G            C          G
A land full of beauty and wonder
    D            D7         G      D  G     D  G
Was raped by the British brigands! Goddamn! Goddamn!

C           G
If you could keep voices like flowers
           C                     G
There'd be shamrock all over the world
                   C           G
If you could drink dreams like Irish streams
         C                          D7          G
Then the world would be high as the mountain of morn

C           G
In the 'Pool they told us the story
        Bm        C         D
How the English divided the land
       G             C             G
Of the pain, and the death and the glory
        D        D7       G
And the poets of auld Eireland

C               G
If we could make chains with the morning dew
    C                          G
The world would be like Galway Bay
      C                       G
Let's walk over rainbows like leprechauns
    C                      D7      G
The world would be one big Blarney Stone

C             G
Why the hell are the English there anyway?
        Bm        C            D
As they kill with God on their side
         G          C           G
Blame it all on the kids in the IRA
       D          D7       G     D    G    D   G
As the bastards commit genocide! Aye! Aye! Genocide!

If you had the luck of the Irish
         Bm        C             D
You'd be sorry and wish you were dead
           G        C           G
You should have the luck of the Irish
          D            D7        G
And you'd wish you was English instead!
          D            D7        G
Yes you'd wish you was English instead!

About the artist behind The Luck Of The Irish Chords:

John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE (born John Winston Lennon; 9 October 1940–8 December 1980) was an English rock musician, singer, songwriter, artist, and peace activist who gained worldwide fame as one of the founding members of The Beatles. As a member of the group, Lennon was one of the lead vocalists and co-wrote the majority of the band's songs with bassist Paul McCartney.

In his solo career, Lennon wrote and recorded songs such as "Give Peace a Chance" and "Imagine". Lennon revealed his rebellious nature and wit on television, in films such as A Hard Day's Night, in books such as In His Own Write, and in press conferences and interviews. He was controversial through his work as a peace activist, artist, and author.

Lennon had two sons: Julian Lennon, with his first wife Cynthia Lennon, and Sean Ono Lennon, with his second wife, avant-garde artist Yoko Ono. After a self-imposed retirement from 1976 to 1980, Lennon reemerged with a comeback album, but was murdered one month later in New York City on 8 December 1980. In 2002, respondents to a BBC poll on the 100 Greatest Britons voted Lennon into eighth place. In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Lennon number 38 on its list of "The Immortals: The Fifty Greatest Artists of All Time" and ranked The Beatles at number one.
