Intro

|C G Am F| 6x

CI'm an Irishman G Leather weathered Irish skiAmn Beard orange as the sunsFet over the flag CIn the night sky we fly it in GPride for the life we fight to live AmHistory, I write with it AmSpit it with the dialect CAnd this is a celebration of course GThe green, white, orange AmAnd when they pulled up on that shore FFirst generation born CToast to those that made it on a boat to New York GAnd when the English came the colonizer came AmThey filled up bottles of gasoline, turned 'em into balls of flame FAnd hurled 'em to protect what's ours CDon't touch these lucky charms GWhole bunch of Irish screaming "Fuck the London Guard" AmI'm kidding not dissin' London, this bloody war FBut go against the Irish and get a bloody jaw CPreaching nonviolence but reminds of the scars GAnd the bias, put a pint up everybody sing a song

Chorus

CWe put our glass to the sky and lift up AmAnd live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya FSo raise a pint for the people that aren't with us AmAnd live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya Same the rest of the time We put our glass to the sky and lift up And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya So raise a pint for the people that aren't with us And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya From New England to New Brunswick Galway to Dublin A rebellious nation of freckled face hustlers Heart, blue collared workers and family My heritage, proud to be a Haggerty Now with whiskey in our veins Claiming were the bravest men I drank Old Crow, but pretended it was Jameson Dad sipped Guiness, I sipped Old English 'Til he sat me down at 16 and said "boy, this is what a beer is" I put down the drink, couldn't drink like a gentleman That doesn't mean I can't make a drinking song for the rest of 'em Challenge us in football, yeah we might lose But don't put us next to a bar stool We take the history, script it in song Light the torch then you pass it on That's right I said, lineage through the rhythm we script it from the palm and we give til' Ireland is on Bottoms Up We put our glass to the sky and lift up And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya So raise a pint for the people that aren't with us And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya We put our glass to the sky and lift up And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya So raise a pint for the people that aren't with us And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya
