Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
G CAs I walked out one morning, going to Dungarvan Fair
G DI spied a pretty maiden, with the sunlight in her hair
G CHer way was so delightful, her voice rang like a bell
G D GAnd as I over-took her, I asked if she was well
[Chorus]
D G CLay down your woollen shawl my love, I swear it is no joke
G D GAnd I'll tell to you the story of The Old Dungarvan Oak
[Verse 2]
G CAs we approached Dungarvan, The girl at me did stare
G DAnd she asked me why I raised my hat, to a tree so old and bare
G CSo I told her of the legend, if the tree should e'er come down
G D GThere'd be a great disaster, And Dungarvan would be drowned
[Chorus]
D G CLay down your woollen shawl my love, I swear it is no joke
G D GAnd I'll tell to you the story of The Old Dungarvan Oak
[Verse 3]
G CThen she started laughing, my face grew very red
G DAnd she said that only fools believed, what old legends said
G CHer laughter was contagious, for the truth to you I'll tell
G D GBy the time I reached the market place, I began to laugh as well
[Chorus]
D G CLay down your woollen shawl my love, I swear it is no joke
G D GAnd I'll tell to you the story of The Old Dungarvan Oak
[Verse 4]
G CAs I sit here by my fireside, itโ€™s the autumn of my life
G DAnd the lovely girl I met that day, Is now my darling wife
G COh I have a lovely daughter, and a son to push my yoke
G D GAnd all because I raised my hat, To the Old Dungarvan Oak
[Chorus]
D G CLay down your woollen shawl my love, I swear it is no joke
G D GAnd I'll tell to you the story of The Old Dungarvan Oak
