Blackbird Of Sweet Avondale chords and lyrics-Irish folk song- The Wolfe Tones, also recorded by Silly Wizard. I've no idea who the song writer. It's about Charles Stewart Parnell. Avondale is where he lived in Co. Wicklow. The singer in the video is the great Tommy Byrne with The Wolfe Tones, a beautiful haunting tune. The guitar chords are by Marc Fahrbach

In the (C)fair bay of (Em)Dublin, while (C)careless(Em)ly (Am)strolling

I (C)sat myself (Am)down near a (Em)clear crystal (Am)Stream

Re(C)clined on the (Am)beach, as the (Em)wild waves were (Am)rolling

In (C)sorrow con(Em)doning, I (C)heard a (G)fair (C)maid

 

Her (C)hopes changed to (Em)mourning, that (C)once were (Em)so (Am)glorious

I (C)stood in a(Am)mazement to (Em)hear her sad (Am)tale

Her (C)heartstrings were (Am)torn in wild (Em)ascent so (Am)glorious

Saying, (C)where is my (Em)Blackbird of (C)sweet (G)Avon(C)dale.

 

"In the (C)fair counties (Em)Kerry, through (C)Cork, and (Em)Tip(Am)perary,

The (C)rights of Old (Am)Ireland, my (Em)Blackbird did (Am)sing

But (C)woe to the (Am)hour, with the (Em)dark lights in (Am)Derry

When (C)he from my (Em)arms, to (C)Dublin (G)took (C)way"

 

"Oh, (C)Heaven, give (Em)ear to (C)my (Em)suppli(Am)cation

And (C)strengthen the (Am)bold sons of (Em)Old Granu(Am)aile

And (C)promise that my (Am)country will (Em)soon be a (Am)nation

And (C)bring back my (Em)Blackbird to (C)sweet (G)Avon(C)dale"

 

"Oh, (C)where in my (Em)country, a(C)wake (Em)from your (Am)slumbers

And (C)bring back my (Am)Blackbird, so (Em)dear unto (Am)me

And let (C)everyone (Am)know, by the (Em)strength of your (Am)numbers

That (C)we, as a (Em)nation, would (C)like to (G)be (C)free
