Great Big Sea - The Old Black Rum

Printable Version


From "Up" (1995)
(Bob Hallett, Based on Traditional Irish)

Tab by: Barry O'Brien

I drank [G]sixteen doubles for the [D]price of [G]one
[C]Trying to find the courage to [D]talk to one
I asked [C]her for a [G]dance
Not a [C]second [G]glance
My night had just be[D]gun

When I [G]drink to the Father or the [D]Holy [G]Ghost
I'm [C]kneeling at the altar of my [D]nightly post.
So I'll [C]raise the [G]glass
Not the [C]first or [G]last
Come join me in this [D]toast

CHORUS:
Because the [D]old black rum's got a [G]hold of me
Like a [C]dog wrapped round my [D]leg
And the [D]old black rum's got a [G]hold of me
Well, I'm [C]here for a[D]nother [Em]day, [C]Hey
Well, I'm [C]here for a[D]nother [G]day

Well, the [G]queen of George Street just came [D]walking on [G]by
[C]Walking on by with some [D]guy who don't care
That she[C] stood in [G]line
Since [C]half past [G]nine
And spent three hours on her [D]hair

Her [G]friend is looking at me with an [D]evil [G]grin
I [C]think a bloody wracked might [D]soon begin
I must have [C]said some[G]thing
To the [C]George Street [G]queen
The boys are joining [D]in

CHORUS

So I [G]drank all of my money and I [D]slept out in the [G]rain
[C]Everyday is different but the [D]nights they're all the same
You've never [C]see the [G]sun
On the [C]old black [G]rum
But you know I'm gonna do it a[D]gain

CHORUS (x2)

Well, I'm [C]here for a[D]nother [G]day
