     G chord diagramGG                 G6 chord diagramG6G6             D chord diagramDD              G chord diagramGG
Dear Sir, I write this note to you to tell you of me plight
    C chord diagramCC              G chord diagramGG             A7 chord diagramA7A7           D chord diagramDD
And at the time of writing, I am not a pretty sight;
   C chord diagramCC           G chord diagramGG                  D chord diagramDD              Em chord diagramEmEm
My body is all black and blue, my face a deathly gray
      G chord diagramGG                  Em chord diagramEmEm              D7 chord diagramD7D7          G chord diagramGG
And I write this note to say why Paddy's not at work today

verse 2
      G chord diagramGG              G6 chord diagramG6G6                    D chord diagramDD               G chord diagramGG
While working on the fourteenth floor some bricks I had to clear;
        C chord diagramCC                    G chord diagramGG                 A7 chord diagramA7A7          D chord diagramDD
Now, to throw them down from such a height was not a good idea
    C chord diagramCC              G chord diagramGG                D chord diagramDD                Em chord diagramEmEm
The foreman wasn't very pleased, he being an awkward sod
   G chord diagramGG                Em chord diagramEmEm                 D7 chord diagramD7D7            G chord diagramGG
He said I'd have to cart them down the ladders in me hod

verse 3
     G chord diagramGG                  G6 chord diagramG6G6                D chord diagramDD           G chord diagramGG
Now, clearing all these bricks by hand it was so very slow
     C chord diagramCC            G chord diagramGG            A7 chord diagramA7A7               D chord diagramDD
So I hoisted up a barrel and secured the rope below
    C chord diagramCC              G chord diagramGG            D chord diagramDD               Em chord diagramEmEm
But in me haste to do the job I was to blind to see
       G chord diagramGG            Em chord diagramEmEm                  D7 chord diagramD7D7           G chord diagramGG
That a barrelful of building bricks was heavier than me

verse 4
G chord diagramGG           G6 chord diagramG6G6                D chord diagramDD                G chord diagramGG
So when I untied the rope the barrel fell like lead
    C chord diagramCC                G chord diagramGG             A7 chord diagramA7A7           D chord diagramDD
And clinging tightly to the rope I started up instead
        C chord diagramCC              G chord diagramGG              D chord diagramDD           Em chord diagramEmEm
Well, I shot up like a rocket till to my dismay I found
     G chord diagramGG            Em chord diagramEmEm             D7 chord diagramD7D7             G chord diagramGG
That halfway up I met the bloody barrel comming down

Verse 5
          G chord diagramGG               G6 chord diagramG6G6          D chord diagramDD                G chord diagramGG
Well, the barrel broke me shoulder as to the ground it sped
    C chord diagramCC                  G chord diagramGG                A7 chord diagramA7A7            D chord diagramDD
And when I reached the top I banged the pully with my head
        C chord diagramCC                      G chord diagramGG                 D chord diagramDD             Em chord diagramEmEm
Well, I clung on tight through numbed shock from this almighty blow
        G chord diagramGG                  Em chord diagramEmEm              D7 chord diagramD7D7                G chord diagramGG
And the barrel spilled out half the bricks fourteen floors below

Verse 6
     G chord diagramGG                     G6 chord diagramG6G6              D chord diagramDD             G chord diagramGG
Now, when these bricks had fallen from the barrel to the floor
  C chord diagramCC                   G chord diagramGG             A7 chord diagramA7A7                D chord diagramDD
I then outweighed the barrel and so started down once more;
      C chord diagramCC                G chord diagramGG              D chord diagramDD                Em chord diagramEmEm
Still clinging tightly to the rope, I sped towards the ground
      G chord diagramGG             Em chord diagramEmEm                  D7 chord diagramD7D7                 G chord diagramGG
And I landed on the brocken bricks that were all scattered round

Verse 7
        G chord diagramGG                  G6 chord diagramG6G6               D chord diagramDD                      G chord diagramGG
Well, I lay there groaning on the ground, I thought I'd passed the worst
         C chord diagramCC              G chord diagramGG                A7 chord diagramA7A7             D chord diagramDD
When the barrel hit the pully-wheel and then the bottom burst
        C chord diagramCC                       G chord diagramGG             D chord diagramDD            Em chord diagramEmEm
Well, a shower of bricks rained down on me, I hadn't got a hope
     G chord diagramGG                 Em chord diagramEmEm                   D7 chord diagramD7D7               G chord diagramGG
As I lay there moaning on the ground, I let go of the bloody rope

Verse 8
    G chord diagramGG                 G6 chord diagramG6G6          D chord diagramDD                 G chord diagramGG
The barrel than being heavier, it started down once more
    C chord diagramCC              G chord diagramGG             A7 chord diagramA7A7           D chord diagramDD
And landed right across me, as I lay upon the floor
         C chord diagramCC                    G chord diagramGG               D chord diagramDD          Em chord diagramEmEm
Well, it broke three ribs and my left arm and I can only say
       G chord diagramGG                Em chord diagramEmEm                D7 chord diagramD7D7            G chord diagramGG
That I hope you'll understand why Paddy's not at work today
