It's aLong Way To tipperary

It's A Long Way To Tipperary                                                                   D
Up to mighty London came an Irishman one day,

G                                                          F#                          B
As the streets were paved with gold, sure ev'ryone was gay!

G                                         F#                              B
Singing songs of Piccadilly, Strand, and Leicester Square,

     B7                                         A          A7         D
'til Paddy got excited, then he shouted to them there:

G                                                       C                  G
It's a long way to Tipperary, it's a long way to go,

                                               B  E     A                      D
It's a long way to Tipperary to the sweetest girl I know!

G                               C                             B7
Goodbye Piccadilly, farewell Leicester Square!

          G              C                   G             A                D       G
It's a long, long way to Tipperary, but my heart's right there.


G                                                          D
Paddy wrote a letter to his Irish Molly O',

G                                                     F#                       B
saying, "Should you not receive it, write and let me know!

G                                              F#                      B
If I make mistakes in spelling, Molly dear", said he,

     B7                                                       A         A7            D
remember it's the pen, that's bad, don't lay the blame on me".
