  C                  F       C          G
If it's drink you want and plenty of feeding 
   F                 G      C
And you like the bed as well
   C          F         C                G     
Grab the wife, throw the kids in the Datsun
   F                      G      C
Make for Inch and the Strand hotel
   C              F          C
If talk of turf drives you crazy
   C                  F        G
And you can't face a bale of hay 
   C      F       C          G      F                      G  C      
Make for Foley's work the topshelf talk puck, pints and the GAA
       

C        F            C       G        F                  G     C      
Oh the low road goes from Killorglin all the way down to Annascaul
C             F       C          G   F                  G       C            
When Eamonn Casey came to guide us he never used his brakes at all
C                         F     C                      F    G                 
A trail of sheepdogs littered Kerry from Killorglin to Macroom
C               F       C          G             F            G           C
He might have been all soul's salvation but he also was the sheep dog's doom


CHORUS
  C             F          C
Casey, Casey you're the divil
  C               F        G
When you get behind the wheel
      C         F   C           G          
It was a sad day for the Kerry sheepdogs
 F                    G          C
When your Firestones they did feel

     
C        F        C         G        F           G     C
From the holy dioceses of Galway Eamonn went to London town
          C        F        C         G          F           G          C
Where the traffic cops out on their duty they overtook and flagged him down
C                  F     C                  F     G                 
As he was tearing after luncheon around the city like a loon
C           F       C          G           F                         G     C
Regardless to his rank and station they forced him to blow up their auld balloon

 C          F      C       G      F                 G        C                 
Geographically he was in limbo faced with justice true and true
   C      F       C     G     F              G       C    
No obligations were accepted he was rightly up the flue
 C                     F       C                       F       G   
No bolt of lightning from the heavens could remove the boys in blue
           C           F            C          G        F                  G     C
Well he wished the force that had worked at Cana would turn his wine into water too
       

CHORUS
  C             F          C
Casey, Casey you're the divil
  C               F        G
When you get behind the wheel
      C         F   C           G          
It was a sad day for the Kerry sheepdogs
 F                    G          C
When your Firestones they did feel


     C      F       C        G         F                      G     C      
When Ronnie Reagan came to Ireland all the wankers made a great furore
C           F       C        G      F                      G     C      
But Eamonn remembered bishop Romero said he'd even up the score
C              F       C                      F       G   
Casey Casey said "God willin' I'll meet Reagan on the road
C           F       C        G            F                        G          C
Niall O'Brien will hear his confessions when I've taught him the Green Cross Code"
C             F          C                               F        G
Casey Casey you're the right man to teach them Yankees right from wrong
C           F            C          G        F                         G     C
If it wasn't for yourself and Reagan there wouldn't be much to Martin Egan's son
