  DUBLIN IN THE RARE OULD TIMES                 Pete St John

 

 

 

G                                              C     G

      Raised on songs and stories

Em                               C
       Heroes of renown

                 G                                C   G
      The passing tales and glories

                  /                                 D
      That once was Dublin Town

                 G                                  C    G
      The hallowed halls and houses

Em                                                     C
      The haunting children's rhymes

                    G                              C
       That once was part of Dublin 

                       D                G
        In the rare ould times.

 


          Chorus:

 

G                                C   G
        Ring a Ring a Rosey

Em                                 C
       As the light declines

               G                         C 
I'll remember Dublin City

                D              G
In the rare ould Times.

 


                 G                          C    G
      My name it is Sean Dempsey

Em                                     C
      As Dublin as could be

                   G                         C   G
      Born hard & late in Pimlico

                /                                        D
      In a house that ceased to be

                 G                     C    G
      My trade I was a cooper

                   Em                     C
       Lost out to redundancy

                           G                               C    G
        Like my house that fell to progress

                 D                   G
       My trades a memory

 

 

And I courted Peggy Digman
As pretty as you please.
A rage and child of Mary
from the rebel liberties
I lost her to a student chap
With skin as back as coal
When he took her off to Birmingham
She took away my soul.

 


 

 

Chorus:

 

G                                 C   G
        Ring a Ring a Rosey

Em                            C
       As the light declines

                 G                        C 
I'll remember Dublin City

              D                 G
In the rare ould Times.

 

 

 

          G                                     C   G

The years have made me bitter

 Em                                              C
           The gargle dims me brain

                  G                            C       G
Cause Dublin keeps on changing

             /                                    D
and Nothing seems the same.

           G                       C                 G
The Pillar and the Met have gone

         Em                                           C
The Royal long since pulled down

                G                            C  
As the grey unyielding concrete

                   D                    G
Makes a city of my Town.

Fare thee well sweet Anna Liffey
I can no longer stay
And watch me new glass cages that
Spring up along me Ouay
My mind's too full of memories
Too old to hear new chimes
l'm a part of what was Dublin
In the rare ould times.
