lyrics

Between the River and the Rails

C F Am F
When I’m feeling so low that road kill looks lucky,
G F C
This happens more times than you might like to here.
C F Am F
There’s one destination that makes me feel better.
G C
Down where the tide flows by just like the beer.

G F C
Between the river and the rails,
F C G
In the room behind the store.
C F C F
Fireplace roaring, Guinness pouring,
G C
How could you ask for anything more.

Repeat chorus

Cops and stockbrokers and writers and loafers
All flock when that green neon shamrock does glow.
So drop all your worries, slow down, there’s no hurry.
Come on to Guinan’s some peace you will know.

Chorus once, then Bridge:

Am F
On the first Thursday just past the full moon
C G
Musicians they gather from far and away.
Am E (retard here…)
Settling in for long night of tunes,
F G….
Wild Rover and Danny Boy oh how they play….

Chorus
