Thread Name: ADD/Chords Req: Patrick's Arrival (William Maginn)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Patrick's Arrival
Same tune, except that 'George' (St George & his lance) and 'Welshman' (Welshman & Scot) is F#.
The G is only sung/played on the word 'well' (well go to pot).

This pattern is repeated over the verses.

The line 'And (he) ordered them all into the Atlantic', 'slips' an extra beat, with 'into' repeating the pattern of 'them all'.

Outside of that little idiosyncrasy, you can sing The Night Before Larry Got/Was Stretched to the same melody

The song is titled 'Patrick's Arrival' on the Christy Moore Album.

Hope this helps
