Chords:
Transpose:
[Am]Eileen Og an' that the darlin's name is
[G]Through the Barony her features they were famous
[Am]If we loved her then who was there to blame us
[Em] [Am] [Em] [Am]For wasn't she the Pride of Petravore?
[Am] [C]But her beauty made us all so shy
[Em] [Am]Not a man could look her in the eye
[Am] [C]Boys, Oh boys, sure that's the reason why
[Em] [Am] [Em] [Am]We're in mournin' for the Pride of Petravore
[Am] [C]:Eileen Og me heart is growin' grey,
[Em] [Am]Ever since the day you wandered far away
[Am] [C]Eileen Og there's good fish in the say,
[Em] [Am] [Em] [Am]But there's none of them like the Pride of Petravore
[Am]Friday at the fair of Ballintubber
[G]Eileen met McGrath the cattle jobber
[Am]I'd like to set me mark upon the robber
[Em] [Am] [Em] [Am]For he stole away the Pride of Petravore
[Am] [C]He never seemed to see the girl at all
[Em] [Am]Even when she ogled him from underneath her shawl
[Am] [C]Lookin' big and masterful when she was lookin' small
[Em] [Am] [Em] [Am]Most provokin' for the Pride of Petravore
[Am]So it went as 'twas in the beginning
[G]Eileen Og was bent upon the winning
[Am]Big McGrath contentedly was grinning
[Em] [Am] [Em] [Am]Being courted by the Pride of Petravore
[Am] [C]Sez he: "I know a girl that could knock you into fits"
[Em] [Am]At that Eileen nearly lost her wits
[Am] [C]The upshot of the ruction was that now the robber sits
[Em] [Am] [Em] [Am]With his arm around the Pride of Petravore
[Am] [C]Eileen Og me heart is growin' grey,
[Em] [Am]Ever since the day you wandered far away
[Am] [C]Eileen Og there's good fish in the say,
[Em] [Am] [Em] [Am]But there's none of them like the Pride of Petravore
[Am]Boys, Oh boys, with fate 'tis hard to grapple
[G]Of my eyes 'tis Eileen was the apple
[Am]Now to see her walkin' to the chapel
[Em] [Am] [Em] [Am]With the hardest featured man in Petravore
[Am] [C]Now, boys, this is all I have to say:
[Em] [Am]When you do your courtin' make no display
[Am] [C]If you want them to run after you, just walk the other way
[Em] [Am] [Em] [Am]For they're mostly like the Pride of Petravore
[Am] [C]Eileen Og me heart is growin' grey,
[Em] [Am]Ever since the day you wandered far away
[Am] [C]Eileen Og there's good fish in the say,
[Em] [Am] [Em] [Am]But there's none of them like the Pride of Petravore
