On Mother Kellys Door Step Chords
Most people just sing the chorus to this music hall sing along song as
the verses are mostly half sung/half spoken or not used at all!
I have tabbed the verses from various sources so any improvements welcome.

Intro = C Em Am G D

Verse 1
D              G              Am        
I've just been lingering all alone 
     C        D
Down Paradise Row
             G           Am   D                       
When I was a kiddy I'd a sweetheart
     C              D
Down there we would go
             Em                      D
I'd call her Nelly and she'd call me Joe
             Am         Em      D
And we would romp there hand in hand
          Em       Am        Em       D
Then we'd both sit down on a doorstep there
         A                  D
And we'd picture the future grand

Chorus
                  C    D                 G
On Mother Kelly's doorstep down Paradise Row
                 D                        G
I'd sit along o' Nelly she'd sit along o' Joe
                   Em
She'd got a little hole in her frock
Bm               C                          G
Hole in her shoe hole in her sock where her toe peeped through
    A                               D
But Nelly was the smartest down our alley
                  C    D                 G
On Mother Kelly's doorstep I'm wondering now
            D                       G
If li'l gal Nelly remembers Joe her beau
             Em               D
And does she love me like she used to
                  C    D                 G
On Mother Kelly's doorstep down Paradise Row

Verse 2
    D            G             Am         
The cobblestones were a meadow sweet 
   C         D
To Nelly and me
          G              Am     D   
The smoky chimney on the housetop 
      C         D
Was a beautiful tree
                Em                   D
And old Brown's donkey was a big baa lamb
    Am           Em     D
And Mother Kelly in the house
Em   Am       Em          D
On a wash day holding her pail
    A                         D
Was Mary the milkmaid milking cows

Chorus
                  C    D                 G
On Mother Kelly's doorstep down Paradise Row
                 D                        G
I'd sit along o' Nelly she'd sit along o' Joe
                   Em
She'd got a little hole in her frock
Bm               C                          G
Hole in her shoe hole in her sock where her toe peeped through
    A                               D
But Nelly was the smartest down our alley
                  C    D                 G
On Mother Kelly's doorstep I'm wondering now
            D                       G
If li'l gal Nelly remembers Joe her beau
             Em               D
And does she love me like she used to
                  C    D                 G
On Mother Kelly's doorstep down Paradise Row

Repeat chorus
                  C    D                 G
On Mother Kelly's doorstep down Paradise Row
                 D                        G
I'd sit along o' Nelly she'd sit along o' Joe
                   Em
She'd got a little hole in her frock
Bm               C                          G
Hole in her shoe hole in her sock where her toe peeped through
    A                               D
But Nelly was the smartest down our alley
                  C    D                 G
On Mother Kelly's doorstep I'm wondering now
            D                       G
If li'l gal Nelly remembers Joe her beau
             Em               D
And does she love me like she used to
                  C    D                 G
On Mother Kelly's doorstep down Paradise Row
