The Punch And Judy Man Lyrics And Guitar Chords
John Conolly.John also wrote ''Fiddlers Green'' and lots of other great songs . Patsy Watchorn does a great version of this song and is now singing with the Dubliners.This is a song that I think he should do with the Dubliners because it's well worth keeping alive. Included are the tin whistle notes and the mandolin tab.
D]Down the lanes of [Em]foggy chimneys,
[G]Through the little [D]seaside [A]town,
[D]Strides the east wind [Em]like a dragon,
[G]Strewing leaves of [D]ragged [A]brown.
[G]Winter's planting [D]icicles
A[Em]long the barren [A]shore,
And the [G]Punch and [Em]Judy [A]Man
Is gone for [D]ever.
[D]Mr.Punch and Judy Man,
Bring me back the childhood [G]land of [G]Sum[D]mer
In the meadows by the river
Where the elm and willow stand
Silver mist is creeping down
To lullaby the sleeping land
Through the bare and blackened branches
Swallows fly no more
And the Punch and Judy man is gone forever
Slot machines and penny arcades
Jingle jangle on the pier,
Gone the sound of laughing children,
Fading with the dying year.
Through the town he wanders
In the misty autumn haze,
And the Punch and Judy Man
Is gone for ever.
Where have you and Judy gone?
Gone to join the swelling ranks
Of things that we look back upon.
Memory can conjure you
From dreams of summer days,
But the Punch and Judy Man
Is gone for ever.
Here's the guitar chords as played by The Dublin
[G]Down the lanes of [D]foggy chimneys,
[C]Through the little [D]seaside town,
[G]Strides the east wind [D]like a dragon,
[C]Strewing leaves of [D]ragged brown.
[C]Winter's planting [G]icicles
A[C]long the barren [D]shore,
And the [C]Punch and Judy [D]Man
Is gone for ev[G]er.
[G]Mr.Punch and Judy Man,
[C]Please Bring me back the [D]childhood land of [G]Summer
