Flower of Sweet Strabane chords
Irish Traditional

Capo I

Bm  A  Bm

Bm A BmIf I were King of Ireland's Isle and had all things at my will
A BmI'd roam for recreation and I'd seek for comfort still
A BmThe comfort I would ask for, so that you may understand
A BmIs to win the heart of Martha, the Flower of Sweet Strabane
Bm A BmHer cheeks they are a ruby red, her hair a lovely brown
A BmAnd o'er her milk white shoulders it carelessly hangs down
A BmShe is the fairest creature and the pride of all her clan
A BmAnd my heart is captivated by the flower of Sweet Strabane
Bm A BmWell I've been in the Phoenix Park and in Killarney fair
A BmThe lovely glens of Antrim and the winding banks of Clare
A BmIn all my earthly travels I never yet met one
A BmThat could compare, I do declare, with the Flower of Sweet Strabane
Bm A BmBut since I cannot gain her love, no joy there is for me
A BmAnd I must seek forgetfulness in lands across the sea
A BmUnless she cares to follow me, I swear by my right hand
A BmMcKenna's face you'll ne'er more see, my Flower of Sweet Strabane
Bm A BmSo its farewell to sweet Derry Quay, New Mills and Waterside
A BmI'll sail out o'er the ocean, whatever may betide
A BmI'll sail away from Derry Quay out by the Isle of Man
A BmAnd I'll bid farewell to Martha, the Flower of Sweet Strabane
