Great Big Sea - The Night Pat Murphy Died

Printable Version


From "Play" (1997)
(Traditional, Arr. By GBS)

Tab by: Adam Bishop

Capo: 2nd Fret

Oh the [G]night that Patty Murphy died is a [C]night I'll never for[D]get
[G]Some of the boys got [G/F#]loaded drunk and they [C]ain't got sober [D]yet
As [G]long as a bottle was passed around every [C]man was feeling [D]gay
O'[G]Leary came with a bagpipe, some music for to play

CHORUS:
[G]That's how they showed their [C]respect for Patty [D]Murphy
[G]That's how they showed their [C]honour and their [D]pride
[G]They said it was a sin and shame and they [C]winked at one a[D]nother
[G]And every [G/F#]drink in the [Em]place was [D]full the [C]night Pat [D]Murphy [G]died

INSTRUMENTAL:  [G]   [G]   [C]   [D]  (x2)

As [G]Mrs. Murphy sat in the corner, [C]pouring out her [D]grief
[G]Kelly and his gang came [C]tearing down the [D]street
They [G]went into an empty room and a [C]bottle of whisky [D]stole
They [G]put the [G/F#]bottle [Em]with the [D]corpse to [C]keep that [D]whisky [G]cold

CHORUS

About [G]2 o'clock in the morning after [C]emptying the [D]jug
[G]Doyle rolls out the icebox, let's us [C]see poor Patty's [D]mug
They [G]stopped the clock so Mrs. Murphy [C]couldn't tell the [D]time
And [G]then at [G/F#]quarter [Em]after [D]2 we [C]argued [D]it was [G]9

CHORUS

Well they [G]stopped the hearse on George Street out[C]side some dance sa[D]loon
They [G]all went in at half past 8 and [C]staggered out at [D]noon
They [G]went up to the graveyard so [C]holy and su[D]blime
[G]Found out [G/F#]when they [Em]got there [D]they [C]left the [D]corpse be[G]hind

CHORUS

Oh the [G]night that Patty Murphy died is a [C]night I'll never for[D]get
[G]Some of the boys got loaded drunk and they [C]ain't got sober [D]yet
As [G]long as a bottle was passed around every [C]man was feeling [D]gay
O'[G]Leary [G/F#]came with a [Em]bagpipe, [D] some [C]music [D]for to [G]play

CHORUS

[G]And every [G/F#]drink in the [Em]place was [D]full the [C]night Pat [D]Murphy [G]died
