Belfast Mill The Fureys Lyrics And Guitar Chords written by Khan/ Finbar Furey about the City of Belfast and how it has changed over the years, recorded by The Furey Brothers And Davie Arthur. The Banjo/Mandolin tab is included along with the sheet music notes.
 
 
[Capo 2nd fret and you will be in key of D]
At[C] the east end of town,at the[Am] foot of the hill,
There's a[G] chimney so tall,it[F] says Belfast[C] mill,
But there's no smoke at all coming[Am] out of the stack,
For the[G] mill has shut down,and its[F] never coming[C] back.
[Chorus]
And the only tune I hear is the sound of the wind,
As she blows through the town weave and spin,weave and spin.
[2]
There's no children playing in the dark narrow streets,
For the mill has shut down it's so quiet,I cant sleep.
[3]
The mill has shut down,'twas the only life I know,
Tell me where will I go,tell me where will I go.
[4]
I'm too old to work and Im too young to die,
Tell me where will I go my family and I.
[repeat chorus after each verse]

Belfast Mill by The Fingal Brigade played in the key of D, I use a capo on the second fret and play C, F, G And Am. The strumming pattern is Down Down up down op down down.

Belfast Mill Tin Whistle Music

In the above tin whistle video the second version is played on a low G whistle, just to give an example of how the tune sounds when played on a low whistle. The notes played are the same as the first version.
