In my  G memo D ry, I will  C always  G  see
The  C town that I  G have  G loved so  D / G | D  well
Where our  G school played  D ball by the  C gasyard  G  wall
And we  C laughed through the  G smoke  D and the  G smelG / C l.        G 
Going  C home in the  D rain, running  G up the  Bm/F# dark     Em | G/D  lane
Past the  C jail Em/B     and  Am down behind the  D founD / G tain       D 
Those were  G happy  D days in so  C many, many  G  ways
In the  C town I  G loved  D  so  G | G / C well.         G 
 
 
In the early morning the shirt-factory horn
Called women from Creggan, the Moor, and the Bog
While the man on the dole played the mother's role
Fed the children and then trained the dogs.
And when times got tough there was just about enough
But they saw it through without complaining
For deep inside was a burning pride
In the town I loved so well.
 
 
There was music there in the Derry air
Like a language that we all could understand
I remember the day that I earned my first pay
When I played in the small pick-up band.
There I spent my youth and to tell you the truth
I was sad to leave it all behind me
For I'd learned about life and I found a wife
In the town I loved so well.
 
 
Instrumental : C   Am   G   D 
 
 
But when I returned how my eyes have burned
To see how a town could be brought to its knees
By the armored cars and the bombed-out bars
And the gas that hangs on to every breeze.
Now the army's installed by that old gasyard wall
And the damned barbed wire gets higher and higher
With their tanks and their guns, oh my god, what have they done
In the  C town I  G loved  D  so  G well ? Eb 
(Modulation en : Ab )
 
Now the  Ab music's  Eb gone,  Db    but they carry  Ab  on
For their  Db spirit's been  Ab bruised never  Ab bro-o- Eb  ken
They will  Ab not for Eb get, but their  Db hearts are  Ab  set
On to Db morrow and  Ab peace  Eb  once a Ab gain.    Ab 
(Retour en : G )
 
For what's  C done is  D done and what's  G won   Bm/F# is       Em | G/D  won
And what's  C lost Em/B     is  Am lost and gone for D | D / G ever          D 
I can  G only  D pray for a  C bright brand-new  G  day
In the  C town I  G loved  D  so  C well.  C       G
