Song For Ireland chords
Luke Kelly (Phil & June Colclough)

Capo II

D A  G D A D

D               A
Walking all the day,
   G    D            A                   D
by tall towers where falcons build their nests
D                    A
In silver wings they fly,
     G        D       A                D
they know the call of freedom in their breasts
G                          D
Saw Black Head against the sky,
      Bm      G         D               A
where twisted rocks may run down to the sea

G              D       A
Living on your Western shore,
    D         A       Bm        A
saw summer sunsets, I asked for more,
  G               D      A
I stood by your Atlantic Sea,
      G      D        A  D
and I sang a song for Ireland

D                A
Drinking all the day,
   G   D          A                D
in old pubs where fiddlers love to play
D                 A
Saw one touch the bow,
   G        D          A                   D
he played a reel which seemed so grand and gay
  G                         D
I stood on Dingle Beach and cast,
   Bm   G       D              A
in wild foam we found Atlantic bass,

G              D       A
Living on your Western shore,
    D         A       Bm        A
saw summer sunsets, I asked for more,
  G               D      A
I stood by your Atlantic Sea,
      G      D        A  D
and I sang a song for Ireland

D                A
Laughing all the day,
     G    D           A               D
with true friends who try to make you stay
D                 A
Telling jokes and news,
    G       D        A               D
and singing songs to while the time away,
   G                         D
We watched the Galway salmon run,
     Bm     G        D              A
like silver dancing, darting in the sun

G              D       A
Living on your Western shore,
    D         A       Bm        A
saw summer sunsets, I asked for more,
  G               D      A
I stood by your Atlantic Sea,
      G      D        A  D
and I sang a song for Ireland

D               A
Dreaming in the night,
  G     D          A             D
I saw a land where no one had to fight
    D              A  
And waking in your dawn,
  G       D      A              D
I saw you crying in the morning light
G                          D
Sleeping where the falcons fly,
     Bm        G                D        A
they twist and turn all in your air-blue sky

G              D       A
Living on your Western shore,
    D         A       Bm        A
saw summer sunsets, I asked for more,
  G               D      A
I stood by your Atlantic Sea,
      G      D        A  D
and I sang a song for Ireland

D A  G D A D
