Reilly's Daughter chords and lyrics. A traditional song which was recorded by The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem with Tommy doing lead vocals, the song is over 100 years old. Sometimes refered to as ''The One Eyed Reilly''
 
[G]As I was sitting by the fire
Eating spuds and [D7]drinking porter
[G]Suddenly a thought came into my mind
I'd like to marry old [D7]Reilly's daughter.
 
CHORUS:
[G]Giddy i-ae Giddy i-ae Giddy i-ae for the [D7]one-eyed Reilly
[G]Giddy i-ae (bang bang bang) Play it on your[D7] old bass[G] drum.
 
Reilly played on the big bass drum
Reilly had a mind for murder and slaughter
Reilly had a bright red glittering eye
And he kept that eye on his lovely daughter.
 
 
Her hair was black and her eyes were blue
The colonel and the major and the captain sought her
The sergeant and the private and the drummer boy too
But they never had a chance with Reilly's daughter.
 
 
I got me a ring and a parson too
Got me a scratch in a married quarter
Settled me down to a peaceful life
Happy as a king with Reilly's daughter.
 
 
Suddenly a footstep on the stairs
Who should it be but Reilly out for slaughter
With two pistols in his hands
Looking for the man who had married his daughter.
 
 
I caught old Reilly by the hair
Rammed his head in a pail of water
Fired his pistols into the air
A damned sight quicker than I married his daughter
