SPANCIL HILL ( Trad: as performed by Shane MacGowan & Christy Moore )

 Bm			A			    Bm
Last night as I lay dreaming of pleasant days gone by 
 Bm				     D		 A		
My mind being bent on rambling to Ireland I did fly 
 Bm				     D		     A
I stepped on board a vision and I followed with the wind 
 Bm			A			Bm
And I shortly came to anchor at the cross of Spancil Hill 

It being the 23rd of June the day before the fair 
When lreland's sons and daughters all assembled there 
The young and the old, the brave and the bold their journey to fulfill 
But the little church in Cloony a mile from Spancil Hill

I went to see my neighbors to see what they would say 
The old ones were all dead and gone and the young one's turning grey 
I met with tailor Quigley, he's as bould as ever still 
Sure he used to make my britches when I lived in Spancil Hill 

I paid the fly and visit to my first and only love 
She's as fair as any lily and as gentle as a dove 
She threw her arms around me saying "Johnny I love you still 
" Oh she's Ned the rangers daughter and the flower of Spancil HiII 

I dreamt I held and kissed her as in the days of yore 
She said, "Johnny you're only joking as many's the time before" 
The cock crew in the morning he crew both loud and shrill 
And I awoke in California, many miles from Spancil Hill.

Depending on your vocal range, the chords above can be transposed easily:

   Bm      A       D

=  Am      G       C

=  Dm      C       F

=  Em      D       G

= F#m      E       A
