Dublin Take Me

(Rab Noakes)

If you're goin' back to Dublin, take me
On a night like this there's nowhere else I 'd rather be
Just pick me up and carry me, across the Irish Sea
If you're goin' back to Dublin, take me

If I can't make it, please take my regards
To Sweeny O'Donagh, my good friend down in Rathgar
Keep a clean nose for the customs man, and a big smile for the Guards
If I can't make it, please take me regards

Chorus:
Sunny days in the Wicklow Mountains, and music on Merrion Row
Rainy nights in the Gresham Hotel, oh Lord, I gotta, I gotta go

I'll meet you under the arch in Trinity around about eight
And if it don't rain I'' be waiting outside of the gate
We can go to O'Neill's and talk all night and tomorrow when heaven can wait
I'll meet you under the arch in Trinity around about eight

Chorus

If you're goin' back to Dublin, take me
On a night like this there's nowhere else I 'd rather be
Just pick me up and carry me, across the Irish Sea
If you're goin' back to Dublin, take me

Chorus

If you're goin' back to Dublin, I said, if you're goin' back to Dublin
If you're goin' back to Dublin, take me, take me, take me
