Christy Moore D A D At the early age of thirty-eight Me mother said 'Go West!' D A D 'Get up, ' says she. 'and get a job'. Says I, 'I'll do my best' G D Em A I pulled on me Wellingtons to march to Kiltimagh D A D But I took a wrong turn in Charlestown and ended up in Knock D A D Oh once this quiet crossroads was a place of gentle prayer D A D Where Catholics got indulgent once or twice a year. G D Em A You could buy a pair of rosary beads or get your candles blessed D A D If you had a guilty conscience you could get it off your chest. D A D Then came the priest form Partry father Horan was his name D A D And since he's been appointed Knock has never been the same. G D Em A 'Begod,' says Jem, 'tis eighty years since Mary was adout.' D A D 'Tis time for another miracle.' and he blew the candle out. CHORUS G D G D From Fatima to Bethlehem, from Lourdes to Kiltimagh, D A D There's never been a miracle like the airport up in Knock To establish terra firma he draw up a ten year plan And started running dances around 1961. He built a fantabulous church, Go h-álainn, on the holy ground And once he had a focal point he started to expand Chip shops and Bed and Breakfasts sprung up over night. Once a place for quiet retreats
