The Shores of the Swilly
 - Phil Coulter

G C G C Em Am G D G

       G             C           G           C
By the shores of the Swilly, two children at play
    Em          Am          G            D
The king of the castle, the queen of the may
     G         C            G           C
Just me and my sister, in a world of pretend
          Em             Am           G   D     G
Where the sun would keep shining, the day never end


       G             C                G           C
By the shores of the Swilly, now with kids of our own
Em           Am        G               D
Another year over, and see how they've grown
          G              C           G           C
Then we'd watch the last sunset, and walk arm in arm
       Em           Am          G    D        G
Till I see you next summer; God keep you from harm


       Em      C         G               C
And if I was a flier who crashed now and then,
          Em     C            G       D
she would put me together and fly me again.


- Piano -


       Em      C         G               C
And if I was a flier who crashed now and then,
          Em     C            G       D
she would put me together and fly me again.


       G             C               G        C
By the shores of the Swilly, with an aching inside
     Em           Am      G               D
I'll watch as her body is raised from the tide...
    G             C               G           C
Her life has been taken, and I'll never know why
      Em           Am        G    D     G
but I feel in that moment, a part of me died...
