The Night Patty Murphy Died

Oh the night that Patty Murphy died, is a night I'll never forget

Some of the boys got a little bit drunk, and they ain't got sober yet;

As long as a bottle was passed around every man was feelin' gay

O'Leary came with the bagpipes, some music for to play

Chorus:

That's how they showed their respect for Patty Murphy

That's how they showed their honour and their pride;

They said it was a silly shame and they winked at one another

And every drink in the place was full the night Pat Murphy died



As Mrs. Murphy sat in the corner pouring out her grief

Kelly and his gang came tearing down the street

They went into an empty room and a bottle of whiskey stole

They put the bottle with the corpse to keep that whiskey cold



Chorus



About two o'clock in the morning after emptying the jug

Doyle rolls up the ice box lid to see poor Patty's mug

We fixed the clock so Mrs. Murphy couldn't tell the time

And at a quarter after two we argued it was nine



Chorus



They stopped the hearse on George Street outside Sundance Saloon

They all went in at half past eight and staggered out at noon

They went up to the graveyard, so holy and sublime

Found out when we got there, they'd left the corpse behind!



Chorus



Oh the night that Patty Murphy died, is a night I'll never forget

Some of the boys got a little drunk and they ain't been sober yet;

As long as a bottle was passed around every man was feelin' gay

O'Leary came with the bagpipes, some music for to play



Chorus



Well every drink in the place was full the night Pat Murphy died!
