Song Title: THE BALLAD OF THE RONNIE DREW
Artist / Singer: U2

Intro: D D G A

D G A
Here’s to the Ronnie, the voice we adore
D G A
Like coals from a coal bucket scraping the floor
D G A
Sing out his praises in music and malt
D G D D G A
And if you’re not Irish, that isn’t your fault

D G A
Raise up our voices like dogs in a pack
D G A
Thankful for honest men we never lack
D G A
We got ’em by twenties, we got ’em by ones
D G (D D G A) 2x
Them and their daughters and all of their sons

G D
Here’s to you, Ronnie Drew
G D
Here’s to you, Ronnie Drew
G F#m G
Ronnie Drew, we love you, yes we do
D A D
Here’s to you, Ronnie Drew, here’s to you

D G A
And what’s it to any man whether or no’
D G A
Whether I’m easy or whether I’m true
D G A
As I lifted her petticoat easy and slow
D G D D G A
And I tied up me sleeve for to buckle her shoe

D G A
Get up and go at it, five until five
D G A
When the whistle says budge it we come back alive
D G A
He’ll sing to the heavens, he’s stormy as hell
D G (D D G A) 2x
And wherever he goes, we’ll be wishing him well

G D
Here’s to you, Ronnie Drew
G D
Here’s to you, Ronnie Drew
G F#m G
Ronnie Drew, we love you, yes we do
D A D
Here’s to you, Ronnie Drew, here’s to you

A
The dawn and the dust, the wise, the unjust
Em
Kids in gambling games
A
The unheard, the unseen, the unwashed and unclean
Em
Where the streets all have names
A
Baggers, street masons, street wagons to Stevens
Em
With lovers and loners who can hear all intoners
A
The goths and the ravers, evil bids and traders
Em
Sing out Ronnie Drew
D G A
A life for a life or a hand for a hand
D G A
Trust in the music and strike up the band
D G A
The more that we sing the less that we fight
D G D D G A
Time and again this is proved to be right

D G A
Build you a statue on St. Stephen’s Green
D G A
No fairer monument ere to be seen
D G A
The statue of Ronnie Drew holding the hand
D G (D D G A) 2x
Of a girl with her hair in a black velvet band

G D
Here’s to you, Ronnie Drew
No stranger to devils or angles to tell
G D
Here’s to you, Ronnie Drew
A friend of a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend to you
G F#m G
Ronnie Drew, we love you, yes we do
D A D
Here’s to you, Ronnie Drew, here’s to you
D A D
Here’s to you, Ronnie Drew, here’s to you, Ronnie Drew
D A D
Here’s to you, Ronnie Drew, here’s to you, Ronnie Drew

And what’s it to any man whether or no’
Whether I’m easy or whether I’m true
As I lifted her petticoat easy and slow
And I rolled up me sleeve for to buckle her shoe
