Look At The Coffin / Isn't It Grand Boys lyrics and chords
An Irish folk song about a wake. The sheet music in the key of D for Tin Whistle is included along with the 5 string banjo chords. The Clancy Brothers And Tommy Makem song lyrics and guitar chords. I have given 2 sets of chords. The second version in the key of D Major is the same key that The Clancy's sing the song in the youtube video.
[G]Look at the coffin, with silver[C] handles
Isn't it[G] grand, boys, to be bloody well[D] dead?
[G]Let's not have a sniffle, let's have a[C] bloody good [G]cry
And always re[C]member, the[G] longer you live
The[D] sooner you'll bloody well[G] die.
Look at the widow, bloody great woman...
Look at the mourners, bloody great hypocrites..
Look at the preacher, bloody well sanctified...
Look at the choir boys, bloody young faggots...
Here's the Clancys version
[D]Look at the coffin, with silver[G] handles
Isn't it[D] grand, boys, to [Bm]be bloody well[A] dead?
Let's not have a [D]sniffle, [G]let's have a bloody good [D]cry
And [G]always remember, the[D] longer you live
The[A] sooner you'll bloody well[D] die.
