The Jug Of Punch Lyrics And Chords
A Traditional. The Dubliners version here with Luke Kelly singing with Jim McCann. Recorded by The Clancys, Altan, The Kingston Trio and The Jolly Beggarmen.
One[D] plesent evening in the month of June,
As[A] I lay sleeping[D] in my room,
A small bird sang on an[G] ive[A] bush,
And the[D] song he[G] sang[A7] was the jug of[D] punch.
Too[D] ra lu ra,too la ru[Em] la,to[A] la ru la too[D] la lay,
A small bird sang on an[G] ivy[A] bush,
And the[D] song he[G] sang was the[A7] jug of[D] punch.
What more diveration can a man desire,
To be seated by a snug coal fire,
Upon his knee a pritty wench,and on the table a jug of punch.
If I were sick and very bad,and was not able to go or stand,
I would not think it at all to amiss to pledge my shoes for a jug of punch.
When I am dead and in my grave,no costly toomstone will I have,
Lay me down by my native peat,with a jug of punch at my head and feet.
