Track Name: IRISH NEED NOT APPLY
I spread my wings to try to fly

Irish need not apply

Make my body stay but it go astray

Irish need not apply

Art is long but short is life

Irish need not apply

Lips on green discarded rind

Irish need not apply

God he deemed my credit declined

Irish need not apply

If love’s but a sinew fabric under fabric of time

Irish need not apply
Track Name: THE LAST OF THE TRAVELING PEOPLE
A[Am] me name it is an Paddy
I'm called Pecker Dunne,
My [D]cry, "It is all for all, [G]one for one".
I [B]walk the [Am]roads but I never run,
I'm the [D]last of the travellin' [Am]people.

[Am]With me banjo and [G]fiddle
I honor the song,
I'll [D]sing to all people who [G]do me no wrong,
But if [B]others des[G]pise me I'll [D]just move along
And [G]know I'll find friends in the [Am]mornin'.

Oh, the money is [D]money and
friends they are friends,
I'm drinkin' with them
after [G]our money [G]ends.

But it [Cm]isn't the [G]money,
It's on [Am]them I depend,
when [D]times and the gards are a[Am]gainst me.

From Belfast to [D]Wexford, from [G]Clare to Tralee,
a [D]town with a pub is a [G]livin' for me.
I [E]haven't a [Am]home, but by God I am [D]free,
I'm the [D]last of the [G]travellin' [Am]people.

[Am]Oh, the road isn't [G]easy but [E]it's what I [D]choose,
I'm not always a[G] winner but I'll never lose.
I've the [B]pride of me [D]race and the last of the few,
and I [G]live like my father [Am]taught me.

[Am]Now I'm on the road again, [G]travellin' still,
[D]Summer and winter, keep [G]travellin' I will.
For the [Am]road it is long and I know it'll [D]kill
the last of the [G]travellin' [Am]people.
