[Verse 1]
B B E BWhen I was here on me holidays from far across the sea,
E B B F#I stayed in the town of Wexford near our J F Kennedy,
B B E BWas in New Ross at a dance I met a charming girl so sweet,
E7 B F# B BHer name was Rosie Donahue and she swept me off my feet.
[Verse 2]
B B E BI asked her for a dance that night to which she did agree,
E B B F#And as we danced the night away these words she said to me,
B B E BThat she lived off near Taghmon, on her Fathers little farm,
E B F#7 B BAnd if I'd like to see her home if not there'd be no harm.
[Chorus 1]
B B E BOh Rosie Donahue, I really do not view,
E B C# F#Although I'm bound for America, to you I will be true,
B B E BBut before I leave this country, I'll tell you what I'll do,
E B F#7 BIf you wanna take my surname, then I'll take Donahue.
[Interlude] E B F B G [Verse 3]
C C F CWhen I went back to America and tried to settle down,
