VERSE 1

Walking all the day,
     A chord diagramG MajorG    A chord diagramD MajorD          A2                  A chord diagramD MajorD
by tall towers where falcons build their nests
A chord diagramD MajorD                     A chord diagramA majorA
In silver wings they fly,
       A chord diagramG MajorG       A chord diagramD MajorD      A2                A chord diagramD MajorD
they know the call of freedom in their breasts

Saw Black Head against the sky,
  A chord diagramD MajorD            A chord diagramB minorBm       A chord diagramG MajorG           A chord diagramA majorA
where twisted rocks run down to the sea

Living on your Western shore,
    A chord diagramB minorBm       A chord diagramA majorA         A chord diagramG MajorG         A chord diagramA majorA
saw summer sunsets, I asked for more,
  A chord diagramG MajorG        A chord diagramA majorA       A chord diagramD MajorD       A chord diagramA majorA
I stood by your Atlantic Sea,
      A chord diagramG MajorG      A chord diagramB minorBm          A chord diagramG MajorG -A - A chord diagramD MajorD
and I sang a song for Ireland

Drinking all the day,
   A chord diagramG MajorG   A chord diagramD MajorD          A2                A chord diagramD MajorD
in old pubs where fiddlers love to play
A chord diagramD MajorD                 A chord diagramA majorA
Saw one touch the bow,
   A chord diagramG MajorG                A chord diagramD MajorD          A2        A chord diagramD MajorD
he played a reel which seemed so grand & gay
  A chord diagramG MajorG                          A chord diagramA majorA
I stood on Dingle Beach and cast,
     A chord diagramD MajorD     A chord diagramB minorBm         A chord diagramG MajorG           A chord diagramA majorA
in wild foam we found Atlantic bass,

Living on your Western shore,

VERSE 3
A chord diagramD MajorD                A chord diagramA majorA
Laughing all the day,
     A chord diagramG MajorG    A chord diagramD MajorD                  A2         A chord diagramD MajorD
with true friends who try to make you stay
A chord diagramD MajorD                 A chord diagramA majorA
Telling jokes and news,
     A chord diagramG MajorG       A chord diagramD MajorD        A chord diagramA majorA               A chord diagramD MajorD
and singing songs to while the time away,
   A chord diagramG MajorG                         A chord diagramA majorA
We watched the Galway salmon run,
     A chord diagramD MajorD      A chord diagramB minorBm       A chord diagramG MajorG               A chord diagramA majorA
like silver dancing, darting in the sun

Dreaming in the night,
     A chord diagramG MajorG    A chord diagramD MajorD            A2        A chord diagramD MajorD
I saw a land where no one had to fight
    A chord diagramD MajorD               A chord diagramA majorA
And waking in your dawn,
    A chord diagramG MajorG     A chord diagramD MajorD             A2        A chord diagramD MajorD
I saw you crying in the morning light

Sleeping where the falcons fly,
      A chord diagramD MajorD        A chord diagramB minorBm             A chord diagramG MajorG          A chord diagramA majorA
they twist and turn all in your air-blue sky
