GUEST,Aussie Adam ADD/Chords Req: Patrick's Arrival (William Maginn) (20) Chord Req: Patrick's Arrival 07 Jul 10


Does anyone out there have the music, chords or tab for Patrick's Arrival sometimes called St Patricks Arrival by (William Maginn)the first verse goes:

You've heard of St. Denis of France.
He never had much for to brag on.
You've heard of St. George and his lance
Who killed d'old heathenish dragon.
The Saints of the Welshmen and Scot
Are a couple of pitiful pipers
And might just as well go to pot
When compared to the patron of vipers:
St. Patrick of Ireland, my dear.
He sailed to the Emerald Isle
On a lump of pavin' stone mounted.
He beat the steamboat by a mile
Which mighty good sailing was counted.
Says he, "The salt water, I think,
Has made me unmerciful thirsty;
So bring me a flagon to drink
To wash down the mullygrups, burst ye,
Of drink that is fit for a Saint."

I've heard Christie Moore sing it and would like to do it myself. Any help would be good. Thanks.
