The Green Glens Of Antrim, The Wolfe Tones Lyrics And Chords. A traditional Irish song, also recorded by Maureen Hegarty who does an excelent version. Follow the chords below for The Wolfe Tones version which was worked out by Marc Fahrbach. Taken from The Troubles Album. Sheet music and tin whistle notes included.

THE GREEN GLENS OF ANTRIM 4/4 (Traditional)

(For Wolfe Tones Version use capo on 3rd fret)

 

Far a(D)cross yonder (D7)blue lies a (G)true fairy (D)land

With the sea rippling (Bm)over the (E)shingle and (A)sand

Where the (D)gay honey(D7)suckle is (G)luring the (D)bee

And the green glens of (Bm)Antrim are (A)calling to (D)me

 

Chorus:

Sure if (G)only you knew how the (D)lamp of the (Bm)moon

Turns a (D)blue Irish (Bm)bay to a (E)silver la(A)goon

You'd (D)imagine a (D7)picture of (G)heaven it would (D)be

Where the green glens of (Bm)Antrim are (A)calling to (D)me.

 

Soon I hope to return to my own Cuchendall

T’is the one place for me That can outshine them all.

Sure I know every stone I’ll recall every tree

Where the green glens of Antrim are calling to me

 

I would halt at a cabin close down by the shore

And I’d knock with my heart at that wee cabin door

While the sun showered gold in the lap of the sea

And the green glens of Antrim were smiling at me

 

Chorus

 

Now I'd be where the people are simple and so kind

And among them the one who has been on my mind

Sure I pray that the world would in peace let me be

Where the green glens of Antrim are heaven to me

 

Chorus
