RED RIVER VALLEY                   CAPO 3

 

    SONG FOR IRELAND    Capo 2

 

D             /            A    /

Walking all the day

          Em   Bm                   G            A                 D     /

Near tall towers where falcons build their nests

D          /                    A   /

silver winged they fly,

          Em           Bm      G             A              D       /

they know the call of freedom in their breasts,

G                   /          /                 A    /

saw Black Head against the sky

               D          Bm             G               D          A    /

Where twisted rocks they run down to the sea

G           /              D               /          /

Living on your Western shore,

          Bm          D       /        /                 A     /

Saw summer sunsets,  asked for more,

     G              /        D           A    /

I stood by your Atlantic Sea,

          Em       Bm          G   D

And sang a song for Ireland

 

 

Drinking all the day,

In old pubs where fiddlers love to play,

Saw one touch the bow,

He played a reel which seemed so grand and gay,

stood on Dingle Beach and cast,

In wild foam we found Atlantic bass,

Living on your Western shore,

Saw summer sunset, asked for more,

I stood by your Atlantic Sea,

And sang a song for Ireland

 

 

Talking all the day,

With true friends who try to make you stay,

Telling jokes and news,

And singing songs to pass the night away,

We watched the Galway salmon run,

Like silver dancing, darting in the sun,

Living on your Western shore,

Saw summer sunset, I asked for more,

I stood by your Atlantic Sea,

And I sang a song for Ireland

 

 

Dreaming in the night,

I saw a land where no one had to fight,

waking in your dawn,

I saw you crying in the morning light,

Sleeping where the falcons fly,

They twist and turn all in your air-blue sky,

Living on your western shore,

Saw summer sunset,  asked for more,

I stood by your Atlantic sea,

And sang a song for Ireland

True you ride the finest horse     I’ve ever seen

Standing 16’. 1” or  2”. With eyes wild and green

You ride the horse so well

C                               /

Hands light to the touch

When you ride into the night

        C                         /

Without a trace behind

D                           /                              Em                /

Run your claw along my gut      one last time

    Em                     /                   

I turn to face an empty space

  C                                    / 

Where you used to lie

          D                                       /      

And look for the spark that lights the night

                             Em                   /          

Through the teardrop in my eye.
