E G Am Am (repeat) This is also used at various points in between verses. AmIn the town of Milton one Brian Flannigan battered aGway till his money was spent AmThen he hit a big one and felt like a man again, AmBought a three decker with two floors for rent AmHe threw a big party for friends And relations at a grand old pGlace called Florian Hall AmAnd if you'll just listen I'll make your eyes glisten AmTo the rows and the ructions of Flannigan's ball.Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
Chorus] AmSix long months I spent Gin quincy, AmSix long months doing nothing at aEll, AmSix long months I spent inG quincy AmLearning to dance for Flannigan's ball I sAmtepped out and I steppedG in again, AmI stepped out and I stepped iEn again, AmI stepped out and I stepped Gin again AmLearning to dance for Flannigan's ball. AmFree beer on tap and wine for the ladies, GZiti and sauce for mark porzio AmThere were faheys and bradys, AmMcauliffes and daleys courtin the girls and dancing away. AmBrian tully sang out in his finest form, GThe patron's responded and I lead em all AmI'd spent 6 months at Forbes Academy AmLearning to dance for Flannigan's ball
ChorusAmThe boys were hammered the girls were hearty GDancing around in couples and groups AmAn accident happened you Dennis Flemming AmPut his right leg through miss Finneran's hoops AmThis gal she fainted and cried bloody murder, GCalled for her sons and gathered them all, AmChristopher swore he'd go no further AmTill he had revenge at Flannigan's ball
ChorusAmIn the midst of the melee GMiss Collins fainted her cheeks by now were as red as a rose AmSome of the boys declared she was plastered AmHad a small drop to much I suppose AmYoung Scotty Jenkins so big and ableG GSaw his fair colleen stretched by the wall AmTore the left leg from under the table AmAnd smashed all the dishes at Flannigan's ball AmBoy oh boy now this was a rumble myself GTook a lick from mean Ricky Green AmBut I soon replied to that fine introduction AmAnd gave him a terrible kick in the spleen AmTalent the piper nearly got strangled, GThey squeezed on his bellows, chanters and all, AmThe girls in the middle nearly got trampled AmAnd that put an end to Flannigan's ball
ChorusEnd on Am
