The Night Pat Murphy Died Lyrics

Oh the night Paddy Murphy died is a night I’ll never forget
Some of the boys got loaded drunk and they ain’t been sober yet
As long as a bottle was passed around every man was feelin’ gay
O’Leary came with the bagpipes, some music for to play

That’s how they showed their respect for Paddy Murphy
That’s how they showed their honour and their pride
They said it was a sin and shame and they winked at one another
Every drink in the place was full the night Pat Murphy died

As Mrs Murphy sat in the corner pouring out her grief
Kelly and his gang came tearing down the street
They went into an empty room and a bottle of whiskey stole
Kept the bottle with the corpse to keep the whiskey cold

That’s how they showed their respect for Paddy Murphy
That’s how they showed their honour and their pride
They said it was a sin and shame and they winked at one another
Every drink in the place was full the night Pat Murphy died

About two o’clock in the morning after emptying the jug
Doyle rolls up the ice box lid to see poor Paddy’s mug
We fixed the clock so Mrs Murphy couldn’t tell the time
And at a quarter after two we argued it was nine

That’s how they showed their respect for Paddy Murphy
That’s how they showed their honour and their pride
They said it was a sin and shame and they winked at one another
Every drink in the place was full the night Pat Murphy died

They stopped the hearse on George Street outside Sundance Saloon
They all went in at half past eight and staggered out at noon
They went up to the graveyard so holy and sublime
Found out when they got there they’d left the corpse behind

That’s how they showed their respect for Paddy Murphy
That’s how they showed their honour and their pride
They said it was a sin and shame and they winked at one another
Every drink in the place was full the night Pat Murphy died

Oh the night Pat Murphy died is a night I’ll never forget
Some of the boys got loaded drunk and they ain’t been sober yet
As long as a bottle was passed around every man was feelin’ gay
O’Leary came with the bagpipes, some music for to play

That’s how they showed their respect for Paddy Murphy
That’s how they showed their honour and their pride
They said it was a sin and shame and they winked at one another
Every drink in the place was full the night Pat Murphy died

That’s how they showed their respect for Paddy Murphy
That’s how they showed their honour and their pride
They said it was a sin and shame and they winked at one another
Every drink in the place was full the night Pat Murphy died
