      Chord diagramG+G              Chord diagramD MajorD
There's a sad tale I'll tell you of a sailor man's life
     Chord diagramG+G               Chord diagramD MajorD     Chord diagramE minorEm
How his love for the high seas would cost him a wife
      Chord diagramG+G           Chord diagramD MajorD
When I've told you my story I'm sure you'll agree
   Chord diagramG+G             Chord diagramD MajorD      Chord diagramE minorEm
It's not but pure folly when a man goes to sea
    Chord diagramG+G             Chord diagramD MajorD
Just a young lad of twenty I was courting a lass
     Chord diagramG+G           Chord diagramD MajorD       Chord diagramE minorEm
Full of innocent beauty with style and with class
     Chord diagramG+G            Chord diagramD MajorD
But the ships in the harbor they beckoned it seemed
    Chord diagramG+G              Chord diagramD MajorD       Chord diagramE minorEm
I was lured by the trade winds to find fiddler's green


   Chord diagramG+G              Chord diagramD MajorD
When first I went sailing how a young girl did cry
     Chord diagramG+G               Chord diagramD MajorD     Chord diagramE minorEm
But the lure of the trade winds could not be denied
        Chord diagramG+G              Chord diagramD MajorD
And though she vowed to be faithful as my ship sailed away
      Chord diagramG+G         Chord diagramD MajorD       Chord diagramE minorEm
She would marry another one year from that day


 Chord diagramG+G   Chord diagramC majorC  Chord diagramG+G    Chord diagramD MajorD
Yo ho ho, fiddler's green
  Chord diagramG+G              Chord diagramC majorC      Chord diagramD MajorD
Bewitching young sailors with all of your dreams
 Chord diagramG+G   Chord diagramC majorC     Chord diagramG+G     Chord diagramD MajorD
Yo ho ho, she's calm and serene
  Chord diagramE minorEm           Chord diagramD MajorD     Chord diagramE minorEm
Enchantment awaits you on fiddler's green


      Chord diagramG+G             Chord diagramD MajorD
Well I've sailed many oceans since I left Boston town
    Chord diagramG+G               Chord diagramD MajorD       Chord diagramE minorEm
And my hair has turned silver that was once chestnut brown
     Chord diagramG+G           Chord diagramD MajorD
And from London to Bombay and ports in between
   Chord diagramG+G             Chord diagramD MajorD     Chord diagramE minorEm
I was always in search of this fiddler's green


      Chord diagramG+G               Chord diagramD MajorD
And to you young lads now courting pretty maidens so fair
      Chord diagramG+G               Chord diagramD MajorD     Chord diagramE minorEm
Should you hear those trade winds let me warn you beware
  Chord diagramG+G               Chord diagramD MajorD
Go marry your young girl, as your corn and your beans
    Chord diagramG+G              Chord diagramD MajorD     Chord diagramE minorEm
Don't waste your young manhood on fiddler's green


 Chord diagramG+G   Chord diagramC majorC  Chord diagramG+G    Chord diagramD MajorD
Yo ho ho, fiddler's green
  Chord diagramG+G              Chord diagramC majorC      Chord diagramD MajorD
Bewitching young sailors with all of your dreams
 Chord diagramG+G   Chord diagramC majorC     Chord diagramG+G     Chord diagramD MajorD
Yo ho ho, she's calm and serene
  Chord diagramE minorEm           Chord diagramD MajorD     Chord diagramE minorEm
Enchantment awaits you on fiddler's green
