Lovely Leitrim Lyrics chords and sheet music, written by Phil Fitzpatrick.Phil was born in Aughavas and emigrated to America in the 1930s where he joined the police force and was killed in a robbery in 1947. The singer in the video is Larry Cunningham.

Last[G] night I had a[C] pleasant dream I[G] woke up [D7]with a[G] smile
I[G] dreamed that I was[C] back again in[Am] dear old Eirn's[D7] isle
I[G] thought I saw Lough [C]Allen's banks in the[Am] vallys down be[D7]low
It [G]was my lovely[C] Leitrim where the[G] Shannon [D7]waters[G] flow
 
I felt enchanted by the scene of grandeur and delight
So I strolled on to Carrig Town before the dark of night
I passed Sheepmore that fairy hill where flowers fine do grow
And I saw the grave of Finn McColl where the Shannon waters flow
 
I next did visit Fenagh Town with her ancient abbey walls
Where the teaching of the holy monks once echoed through her halls
I stood with reverence on the spot reluctant for to go
From the town of saints and sages where the Shannon waters flow
 
My eyes are dimmed and wet with tears I must be dreaming still
I thought I saw those hero's that died on Selton Hill
But the fog is lifting from the scene and I am forced to go
And leave the land so fair and grand where the Shannon waters flow
 
In all the lands that I have been throught the east and west
In all the lands that I have seen I love my own the best
And if ever I return again the first place I will go
Will be to lovely Leitrim where the Shannon waters flow

Many of the places mentioned are in my close vicinity. There are a couple of slightly inaccurate place names, though. Sheepmore should read Shee More [Si Mor in Irish - translates to 'great fairy mound'- a beautiful hill on which an ancient mound is situated] 'Carrig' refers to Carrick-on-Shannon which reads 'Carraig'in Irish or Carrick in Anglicised spelling. Information by Angela Mason and George Mason who play music in the Tampa Bay area.
