After The Ball Is Over Lyrics And Guitar Chords.-Folk- Written By Charles Harris, Francis Black done a fine version of this American song, I always assumed this was an Irish song, it has that feel to it. Also recorded by Foster And Allen.

[G]A little maiden climbed an old man's[D7 knee
Begged for a story - "Do, uncle,[G] please!"
Why are you single;[E7] why live[Am] alone?
[C]Have you no[G] ba[E7]bies;[A7] have[D7] you no [C]home?"
"I[Em] had a sweetheart,[C] years,[D7] years a[C]go,,[G]
Where she is[G] now,[Em] pet,[A7] you will soon[C] know.
[G]List to the story,[E7] I'll tell it[Am] all,
I[C] believed her[G] faith[E7]less,[A7] after[D7] the[G] ball."

After the[C] ball is[G] over,
After the break of[D7] morn -
[Am]After the[E7] dancers'[Am] leaving;
[D7]After the stars are[G] gone;
Many a[C] heart is[G] aching,
If[E7] you could read them[A7 all;
[D7]Many the hopes that have[G] vanished
[A7]After[D7] the [G]ball.

"Bright lights were flashing in the grand ballroom,
Softly the music, playing sweet tunes.
There came my sweetheart, my love, my own -
'I wish some water; leave me alone.'
When I returned, dear, there stood a man,
Kissing my sweetheart, as lovers can.
Down fell the glass, pet, broken, that's all.
Just as my heart was, after the ball."
After the ball is over . . . .

After the ball is over,
After the break of morn -
After the dancers' leaving;
After the stars are gone;
Many a heart is aching,
If you could read them all;
Many the hopes that have vanished
After the ball.

"Long years have passed child, I've never wed
True to my lost love, though she is dead.
She tried to tell me, tried to explain;
I would not listen, pleadings were vain.
One day a letter came from that man,
He was her brother - the letter ran.
That's why I'm lonely, no home at all;
I broke her heart, pet, after the ball."
After the ball is over . . . .

After the ball is over,
After the break of morn -
After the dancers' leaving;
After the stars are gone;
Many a heart is aching,
If you could read them all;
Many the hopes that have vanished
After the ball.

After The Ball Is Over Lyrics
 
A little maiden climbed an old man's knee
Begged for a story - "Do, uncle, please!"
Why are you single;[E7] why live[Am] alone
Have you no babies; have you no home
"I had a sweetheart, years, years ago
Where she is now, pet,you will soon know.
List to the story, I'll tell it all,
I believed her faithless,after the ball."

After the ball is over,
After the break of morn -
After the dancers' leaving;
After the stars are gone;
Many a[C] heart is aching,
If you could read them all;
[D7]Many the hopes that have vanished
After the ball.

"Bright lights were flashing in the grand ballroom,
Softly the music, playing sweet tunes.
There came my sweetheart, my love, my own -
'I wish some water; leave me alone.'
When I returned, dear, there stood a man,
Kissing my sweetheart, as lovers can.
Down fell the glass, pet, broken, that's all.
Just as my heart was, after the ball."
After the ball is over . . . .

After the ball is over,
After the break of morn -
After the dancers' leaving;
After the stars are gone;
Many a heart is aching,
If you could read them all;
Many the hopes that have vanished
After the ball.

"Long years have passed child, I've never wed
True to my lost love, though she is dead.
She tried to tell me, tried to explain;
I would not listen, pleadings were vain.
One day a letter came from that man,
He was her brother - the letter ran.
That's why I'm lonely, no home at all;
I broke her heart, pet, after the ball."
After the ball is over . . . .

After the ball is over,
After the break of morn -
After the dancers' leaving;
After the stars are gone;
Many a heart is aching,
If you could read them all;
Many the hopes that have vanished
After the ball.
