Weekend In Amsterdam Chords, from Folk Tale

C
When we got our redundancy, myself and the boys went on the spree
G                                     C                F
A brand new passport in my hand as we took off for The Netherland
C
Myself, Dinny, O'Dwyer and Scut, at Schiphol we were all half cut
G                               C                F
We opened up the duty-free, the red lemonade and brandy
C
And we jumped on board a tram
C                      G              C
Oh The Weekend that we spent in Amsterdam


C
Our first stop was the coffee shop, in we went and we all sparked up
G                      C                      F
Hashish from Pakistan, Morocco, Nepal and the Lebanon
C
All the boys was rollin' joints, they forgot to drink their pints
G                                     C                F
The water pipe came bubblin' around, took one pull and hit The ground
C
Lads wake him if you can
C                      G              C
Oh The Weekend that we spent in Amsterdam


C
Then we went to The Blarney Stone, Paddy Wynne had The Leinster Final on
G                                     C                F
The Lily Whites and The Boys in Blue, the Taytos and Majors 
C
Over to Mulligan's for the night, the bar was leppin' And the band was shite
G                                        C                 F
De Burgh, De Bono and De Wolfe Tones'til Dinny grabbed The microphone
C
And gave us Van The Man
C                      G              C
Oh The weekend that we spent in Amsterdam


C
Then Macker sez while we're here we'll go and have a look at The kinky gear
G                                C                     F
I said a quiet prayer I wouldn't bump into anyone from Kildare
C
Big dildos, blow-up dolls, snap-on tools and hairy Balls
G                               C              F
Vibrators, whips and chains and zips and fanny ticklers
C
God between us and all harm
C                      G              C
Oh The Weekend that we spent in Amsterdam


C
Then we went for a midnight walk, all our eyes were out On stalks
G                     C                    F
Gay bars, bordellos, models in the windows with no Clothes
C
Dinny he danced all night with a South American Transvestite
G                                C              F
Everything was goin' grand until Dinny tried to drop the hand... 
C
Pandemonium
C                      G              C
Oh The Weekend that we spent in Amsterdam


C
The bouncer she was 5' 10", Lowland Heavyweight Champion
G                                     C                F
She hit Dinny an awful box, the boys ran amok and Wrecked the shop
C
We could hear the squad cars getting near, it's time Lads we were out of here
G                                 C             F
Dinny pulled up his tights and we disappeared into the Night
C
All together now one by one
C                      G              C
Oh The Weekend that we spent in Amsterdam


C
Queen Beatrix she rides her bike, Rembrandt is hangin' Down in The Rijk
G                             C              F
Ajax, Heineken, Van Gogh, The Gargle and The Ghanja
C
Monday morning we were all half cracked, we dived into The Kaisergracht
G                                     C                      F
They fished us out, hosed us down and put us on the Plane to Dublin 
C
Home to the Mammy again
C                      F
Oh The Weekend that we spent in 
C                      F
Oh The Weekend that we spent in 
C                      G              C
Oh The Weekend that we spent in Amsterdam
