Intro


   C       G      Am       G       C
     

VERSE 1

       C     G            Am         G      F      G         C
On the quiet banks of the Liffey and lakes, Dublin wrote her name.

       C              G             Am             G              F
On the broad backs of men, we never met with their pens and their stones, 

     G       C
they did the same,

       C     G             Am            G            F
In the hours passed in the pubs, all the glasses were full and they were

G          C
wet to the sleeve.

        C            G            Am         G       F         G     C
And the eyes were so clear on the girl I met there,I swore Id never leave.


CHORUS

        F                              G
And the young men who longed for these shores in a song,

         C      C/B   Am
All they wanted was a home,

      F                     G                        C     C/B Am
And I wanted one too with a girl eyes as blue as the light of dawn,

F              G                          C
Patiently, she waits there for me to come home.


VERSE 2

      C           G      Am             G              F           G
Was a bleary-eyed night, drunk from the lights and the sounds of a city 

C
awake,

        C            G          Am        G               F              G
And she stood in the crowd, her face as a shroud, leaving nothing for my eye 

   C
to take.

      C             G         Am              G          F                   
But a warmth was so clear, it betrayed her as nearly she glowed like those 

G             C
lights on the bridge,

      C          G              Am           G              F           G
And a pain in my side, as I was drawn to her pride like the rise of the wind 

       C
to the ridge.


CHORUS

        F                              G
And the young men who longed for these shores in a song,

         C      C/B   Am
All they wanted was a home,

      F                     G                        C     C/B Am
And I wanted one too with a girl eyes as blue as the light of dawn,

F              G                          C
Patiently, she waits there for me to come home.

VERSE 3 (stum full chords)

      C               G          Am           G             F
These waters have run red, these beaches have bled from the wounds at the 

G             C
dark heart of man,

C               G                   Am            G          F
Daughters grown sharp, tongues like knives to the heart or a charm for the 

G            C
curse of the land,

     C                G         Am                G              F
With prayers in their eyes, how well they've disguised that it's love 

        G      C
they're giving away.

     C        G                 Am              G         F          G      
But you might believe when your hard heart says leave but this one implores 

       C
you to stay.


CHORUS

        F                              G 
And the young men who longed for these girls with our songs,

       C      C/B   Am
All we wanted was a home.

F                      G                             C      C/B     Am    
She wants one too with someone heart as true as this prison made of stone,

F              G                          C
Patiently, she waits there for me to come home,

F            G                      C
Patiently, I wait to be free and be home.
