D – G – D – A - D
As I (D) stand on the hills of Mount (G) Tempest
I can (D) see the sun sink in the (A7) west
And I (D) know that where there I may (G) wander
It's the (D) place I will (A7) always love (D) best
It's the (G) home of my dreams and my (D) memories
Where I (G) first learned to crawl and to (A7) stand
And it was (D) often I’ld walk through the (G) wildwoods
On our (D) twenty-one (A7) Acres of (D) land

CHORUS....

So farewell to the green fields of (G) Ireland
To the (D) family and friends I a-(A7)-dore
In the (D) morning I'll cross the At-(G)-lantic
And I'll (D) work as a (A7) farmer no (D) more
For a (G) man needs a wage for a (D) living
And we (G) all need to know where we (A7) stand
But you (D) can’t keep a wife and a (G) family
On just (D) twenty-one (A7) Acres of (D) land

D – G – D – A - D
My parents worked hard for a (G) living
And I (D) know they had little to (A7) spare
But there's (D) some things they gave me in (G) plenty
Such as (D) loving and (A7) kindness and (D) care
But the (G) world and the times they are (D) changing
And my (G) parents may not under-(A7)-stand
That you (D) can’t keep a wife and a (G) family
On just (D) twenty-one (A7) Acres of (D) land

Chorus

But you (D) can’t keep a wife and a (G) family
On just (D) twenty-one (A7) Acres of (D) land
