The Fenian Lyr Add: Lullaby of London (7) Lyr Add: LULLABY OF LONDON (Shane MacGowan) 24 Nov 98

(Shane MacGowan)

As (C) I walked (F) down by the (C) river(F)side one (C) evening (F) in the (C) spring (C)
Heard a (C) long gone (F) song form (C) days gone (F) by blown (C) in on (F) the great North (C) Wind (C)
Though there (F) is no lonesome (C) corncrake's cry of (Am)sorrow and de(F)light
You can (C) hear the (F) cars and the (C) shouts from (F) bars and the (C) laughter (F) and the (C) fights (C)

May (F) the ghosts that howled round the (C) house at night never (Am) keep you from your (F) sleep
May they (C) all sleep (F) tight down in (C) hell to(F)night or (C) wherever they may (C) be (C)

As I walked on with a heavy heart then a stone danced on the tide
And the song went on though the lights were gone and the North Wind gently sighed
And an evening breeze coming from the East that kissed the riverside
So I pray now child that you sleep tonight when you hear this lullabye

May the wind that blows from haunted graves never bring you misery
May the angels bright watch you tonight and keep you while you sleep

The End!
