Ewan Mccoll – Thirty Foot Trailer chords
This is an incredible song by Ewan Mcoll, made famous by the Dubliners with Luke Kelly It is an incredible, powerful song and I couldnt believe no one had tabbed it before. I normally play it with a mixture of picking and strumming and you may well want to do same. You may also want to repeat bits and leave out chords to adapt it to the way you it. There are so many versions of this song, and every one is different so everyone it differently. In the second line of the verse you may want to leave out the G chord, and you might to use C instead of Am. Enjoy! [C]The old ways are changing you [F] cannot deny [C]The day of the traveler's [F]ov[G]er There's[Am] nowhere to gang and there's [C] nowhere to[F] bide So[C] farewell to the life of the[F] rov[C]er [C]Goodbye to the tent and the [F] old cara [G] van To[Am] the tinker, the[C] gypsy, the[F] traveling [G]man And[G] goodbye tae the[C] thirty foot[F] trail[F]er Farewell tae the cant and the traveling tongue Farewell tae the Romany talking The buying, the selling, the old fortune telling The knock on the door and the hawking You got to move fast to keep up with the times For these days a man cannot dander There's a bylaw to say you maun be on your way And another to say ye can't wander Farewell to the blossom and besoms of broom Farewell tae the creels and the baskets The folk of today would far rather pay For a thing that is made oot o plastic The old ways are passing and soon will be gone And progress is aye a big factor Its sent to afflict us and when they evict us They tow us away wi a tractor Farewell tae the pony, the cob, and the mare The reins and the harness are idle You don't need a strap when you're breaking up scrap So farewell tae the bit and the bridle Farewell tae the fields where we've sweated and toiled At pulling and hauling and lifting They'll soon have machines and the traveling queens And their menfolk had better be shifting
