Raglan Road chords  to the tune The Dawning of the Day 
Patrick Kavanagh  On Raglan Road Fáinne Geal an Lae  (as performed by The Dubliners) * 

Capo I


D GOn Raglan Road on an autumn day,
D G DI saw her first and knew
G DThat her dark hair would weave a snare,
Bm Athat I might one day rue
G DI saw the danger and I passed,
Bm Aalong the enchanted way,
D Gand I said: 'Let grief, be a fallen leaf
D G Dat the dawning of the day'
D GOn Grafton Street in November,
D G Dwe tripped lightly along the ledge
G DOf a deep ravine, where can be seen,
Bm Athe worth of passion's pledge
G DThe Queen of Hearts, still making tarts,
Bm Aand I not making hay
D Oh, I loved too much and by such,
G D G Dby such, is happiness thrown away
D GI gave her gifts of the mind,
D G DI gave her the secret signs
G DThat's known to the artists who have known,
Bm Athe true gods of sound and stone
G DAnd word and tint, without stint,
Bm AI gave her poems to say
D GWith her own name there, and her own dark hair,
D G Dlike clouds over fields of May
D GOn a quiet street, where old ghosts meet,
D G DI see her walking now
G DAway from me so hurriedly,
Bm Amy reason must allow
G DThat I had loved, not as I should,
Bm Aa creature made of clay
D When the angel woos the clay,
G D G Dhe'd lose, his wings at the dawn of day
