Dublin In My Tears          http://dublincityramblers.com/


         G                                    
I have travelled many lands,and I still don't understand
  C                             Am          D
How sad you have become on my return
   G
Your poor heart is filled with care,sad and old they left you there
        D                    D7            G
Your once bright eyes with sorrow softly burn
        C                            G       
I can even sense the change in the sound of childrens games
         D                    D7                 G                 G7 
And the dreams of youth's ambitions have all turned to doubt and fear
           C                              G            
It's an  age of wealth Im told but I've never felt so old
   D              D7          G
As I recall old Dublin in my tears


         G                                    
All the  faces that I meet as I roam each one way street
 C                               Am          D
Reflect the empty statements of our time
  G
And the  old cathedral bell can't be heard above the swell
        D                    D7            G
For the  years arranged a message in her chimes
C                            G       
All my childhood friends are gone,like the street where I was born
         D                    D7            G          G7 
And the  time that it has taken doesn't  seem so long ago
           C                              G            
They have faded in the gloom like 'Sap Kelly' from the Coombe
          D              D7                G
Like the ghost of dear old Dublin in my  tears.


         G                                    
There were times when jobs were few,there were hungry days we knew
 C                               Am          D
Some days so bad their memory I've cursed
  G
And the  prayer I said to God,there on board the Princess Maud
        D                    D7            G
That our children would restore the pride we lost
C                            G       
But the  past we all forsake while we're dancing at her wake
         D                    D7          G           G7        
And the  heart of Dublin's dying,but no body seems to care,
           C                              G            
And the  fools as they pass by,laugh to see an old man cry
       D              D7             G
But I can't forget old Dublin in my tears


         G                                    
Gather round brave men and true,though our numbers may be few
 C                               Am                   D
We'll drink one toast before I cross the foam
  G
For soon in London's dark domain,I'll recall how I became
        D                    D7            G
No more a stranger there that here at home
C                            G       
But the  liffey flows along and I listen for her song
         D                    D7                 G         G7 
And the  voice of young James Larkin seems to echo in my ears
           C                              G            
But its  just the rafters ring,to it's requiem I'll sing
   D              D7          G
Farewell to dear old Dublin in my tears,
   D              D7                C    G......
Farewell to dear old Dublin in my tears ..
