Beautiful Beautiful Ireland Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords. Ann And Francie Brolly. Irish folk.

(C) Farewell to the cottage on the (F) moun(C)tain
To the cradle that first lulled me to (G) sleep
Tears (C) fell like some (G) natural (C) foun(F)tain
As I gaze o'er the (G) waves of the (C) deep
 
O land of the loveliest culture
Umatched boys where e're we do roam
That like the lone dove 'neath the vulture
Lies the shadow of an Irish man's home
 
CHORUS:
Beautiful, beautiful (F) Ire(C)land
You're the emerald gem of the (G) sea
I will (C) cling to my (G) home in old (C) Ire(F)land
O my (C) Ireland I (G) wish you were (C) free
 
Look at the ships daily sailing
They're bound for a far distant shore
Listen to the cries and the wailing
They're leaving their own native home
 
They're going to a land where there's plenty
It's a land of the free o'er the foam
But each night as I lie on my pillow
I will dream of an Irish man's home

This song was written by Francie Brolly who is a former member of the Northern Ireland Assembly and hales from Derry. Many of Francie's songs are here on the site including White Orange And Green and another which he wrote called the H-Block Song. Francie's son Joe Brolly who played Gaelic football for Derry is to be seen most Sunday's on R.T.E. television as he's a Gaelic football pundit on the Sunday Game with Sean O'Rourke. Listening to the song you get the feeling that it's much older than it really is, it's certainly up there with the classics such as Galway Bay as a nostalgic song.
