Johnson's Motor Car (ft. Tommy Makem)
C G7 C T'was down by Brannigan's Corner, one morning I did stray F C I met a fellow rebel, and to me he did say F C "We've orders from the captain to assemble at Dunbar G7 C But how are we to get there, without a motor car?" C G7 C "Oh, Barney dear, be of good cheer, I'll tell you what we'll do F C The specials they are plentiful but the I.R.A. are few F C We'll send a wire to Johnson to meet us at Stranorlar G7 C And we'll give the boys a bloody good ride in Johnson's Motor Car C G7 C When Doctor Johnson heard the news he soon put on his shoes F C He says this is an urgent case, there is no time to lose F C He then put on his castor hat and on his breast a star G7 C You could hear the din all through Glenfin of Johnson's Motor Car C G7 C But when he got to the railway bridge, some rebels he saw there F C Old Johnson knew the game was up, for at him they did stare F C He said "I have a permit, to travel near and far" G7 C "To hell with your English permit, we want your motor car" C G7 C "What will my local brethren think, when they hear the news F C My car it has been commandeered, by the rebels at Dunluce" F C "We'll give you a receipt for it, all signed by Captain Barr G7 C And when Ireland gets her freedom, boy, you'll get your motor car" C G7 C Well we put that car in motion and filled it to the brim F C With guns and bayonets shining which made old Johnson grim F C And Barney hoisted a Sínn Fein flag, and it fluttered like a star G7 C And we gave three cheers for the I.R.А. and Johnson's Motor Car.
