Misc Irish – Fiddlers Green tab
A wonderful traditional folk song! I've only heard the Dubliners' cover, here it is! Capo 5th fret. C F C Am As I walked by the dockside one evening so fair, C F C G to view the salt waters and take the salt air, F C I heard an old fisherman singing a song, G C G 'Oh take me away boys, me time is not long'. CHORUS C G C Wrap me up in me oilskins and jumpers, F C G no more on the docks I'll be seen. F C Just tell me old shipmates, I'm taking a trip, mates, G G7 C and I'll see you some day on Fiddler's Green. C F C Am Now Fiddler's Green is a place I've heard tell, C F C G where the fishermen go if they don't go to hell. F C Where the skies are all clear and the dolphins do play, G C G and the cold coast of Greenland is far, far away. CHORUS C F C Am Where the skies are all clear and there's never a gale, C F C G and the fish jump on board with one swish of their tail. F C Where you lie at your leisure, there's no work to do, G C G and the skipper's below making tea for the crew. CHORUS C F C Am When you get back on docks and the long trip is through, C F C G there's pubs and there's clubs and there's lassies there, too. F C Where the girls are all pretty and the beer it is free, G C G and there's bottles of rum growing from every tree. CHORUS C F C Am Now I don't want a harp nor a halo, not me, C F C G just give me a breeze on a good rolling sea. F C I'll play me old squeezebox as we sail along, G C G with the wind in the rigging to sing me a song. CHORUS
