Intro:
B   F# B   F#


Verse 1:
          B   F#         B                          B7      E   G#7
There's a spot in old Tirconnel, there's a wee house in the glen
       C#m F#7       B       G#7  C#     C#7            F#
Where dwelt an Irish colleen, who charmed the hearts of men
        B      F#         B                       B7      E   G#7
She was winsome, fair and hearty, shy and graceful as the fawn,
           C#m  F#7         B       G#m      C#m      F#     B    F#
Neighbours loved the widows daughter, happy, laughing Noreen Bawn


Verse 2:
         B  F#            B                        B7      E   G#7
Then one day there came a letter, with her passage paid to go
       C#m F#7          B     G#7      C#  C#7     F#
To the land where the Missouri and the Mississippi flow
       B   F#           B                 B7          E   G#7
So she said good-bye to Erin, and next morning at the dawn
       C#m  F#7       B     G#m      C#m F#         B    G (key change)
A poor broken hearted mother bid farewell to Noreen Bawn


Verse 3:
     C  G              C                       C7      F   A7
Many years that Mother waited, till one morning at the door
        Dm      G7       C    A7   D    D7               G
Stood a gorgeous looking lady, all grand the clothes she wore
       C     G          C                      C7     F   A7
Saying Mother don't you know me, sure I've only got a cold
        Dm     G7    C        Am          Dm    G      C    G# (key change)
But the purple spots upon her cheeks, the tragic story told


Verse 4:
          C#       G#     C#                        C#7    F#   A#7
There's a graveyard in Tirconnel, where the blossoms sadly wave
          D#m    G#7     C#     A#7       D#    D#7   G#
There's a broken hearted Mother, kneeling on a lonely grave
          C#    G#       C#                     C#7           F#   A#7
Saying my Noreen you are calling, its long years since you've gone
           D#m     G#7 C#      A#m           (N.C.)         C#  A   B   C#  
It was the curse of emigration, that laid you low my Noreen Bawn
