God Woman

Christy Moore

Dm   Am   Dm   Am

Dm                      F                            Am
She spent seven days creating the World, the Sun, the Moon and Stars
Dm                          Am
And the Plough and the Milky-Way and Jupiter and Mars
Dm                               F                   Am
And she opened her ribcage. Then she pulled out a little man.
Dm                                                      Am
She put him down on the plains of Kildare and the human race began

F                             Am
Go forth said she and multiply God man and I will by God.
Dm                                  F                   Am
What better place to begin the race than below in the yellow Bog*


Dm         Am         Dm     F   Am
God Woman, God Woman, God Woman, God Woman

Dm                            F            Am
Down by the edge of Clongorey he built a holy cell
Dm                              Am
Where he knelt to contemplate heaven and drink from St. Brigids well.
Dm                                    F                Am
And then he went to the mission fields of Raheens and Ballitore
Dm                                    Am
And he sailed on down the Grand Canal to the town of Lollymore.
F                                         Am
Where he went breaking up the Bordellos, and smashing the poit�n stills.
Dm                       F                Am
Introducing the word of God around the furry hills


* The place was in fact Bowlings Gog at Barronstown, Miltown,
Newbridge, County Kildare
