THE TRAVELING PEOPLE-The Dubliners with Luke Kelly No Capo

I’m [C]a freeborn man of the [F]travelling [G]people,
Got no fixed abode with nomads I am [C]numbered,
Country [G]lanes and by [C]ways were always [F]my [C]way,
I’ve [F]never [C]fancied [F]being [Bb]lum[C]bered.

Well we knew the woods and the [F]resting [G]places,
And the small bird sang when winter time was [C]over
Then we'd [G]pack our load and be [C]on the [F]road,
[C]Those were [F]good old [C]times [F]for the [Bb]ro[C]ver.

In the open ground you could [F]stop and [G]linger,
For a week or two for time was not your [C]master,
Then a[G]way you'd jog with your [C]horse and [F]dog,
[C]Nice and [F]easy [C]no need [F]to go [Bb]fas[C]ter.

And sometimes we’d meet up [F]with other [G]people
Hear the news or else swap friendly infor[C]mation
At the [G]country fair, we’d be [C]meeting [F]there
[C]All the [F]people [C]of the [F]travelling [Bb]na[C]tion

I've made willow creels and the [F]heather [G]besoms
And I've even done some begging and some [C]hawkin'
And I've [G]lain there spent wrapped up [C]in my [F]tent
[C]And I've [F]listened [C]to the [F]old folks [Bb]talk[C]ing

All you freeborn men of the [F]travelling [G]people,
Every tinker, rolling stone and gypsy [C]rover,
Winds of [G]change are blowing, old [C]ways are [F]going,
[C]Your tra[F]velling [C]days will [F]soon be [Bb]o[C]ver.

I’m [C]a freeborn man of the [F]traveling [G]people,
Got no fixed abode with nomads I am [C]numbered,
Country [G]lanes and by [C]ways were always [F]my [C]way,
I [F]never [C]fancied [F]being [Bb]lum[C]bered.

I’m *[G]*a freeborn man of the *[C]*traveling *[D7]*people,
Got no fixed abode with nomads I have *[G]*wandered
Country *[D7]*lanes and by *[G]*ways were always *[C]*my *[G]*ways,
I *[C]*never *[G]*fancied *[C]* being *[F]*lum*[G]*bered.


Oh we knew the woods and the *[C]*resting *[D7]*places,
And a small bird sang when winter days were *[G]*over
Then we'd *[D7]*pack our loads and be *[G]*on the *[C]*road,
*[G]*Those were *[C]*good old *[G]*days *[C]*for a *[F]*ro*[G]*ver.


There was open ground where a *[C]*man could *[D7]*linger,
For a week or two for time was not our *[G]*master,
Then a*[D7]*way you'd jog with your *[G]*horse and *[C]*dog,
*[G]*Nice and *[C]*easy *[G]*no need *[C]*to go *[F]*fas*[G]*ter.


Now I've known life hard and I've *[C]*known life *[D7]*easy,
And I've cursed the life when winter days were *[G]*dawning,
But I've *[D7]*laughed and sung through the *[G]*whole night *[C]*long,
*[G]*Seen the *[C]*summer *[G]*sunrise *[C]*in the *[F]*morn*[G]*ing.


All you freeborn men of the *[C]*travelling *[D7]*people,
Every tinker, rolling stone and gypsy *[G]*rover,
Winds of *[D7]*change are blowing, *[G]*old ways are *[C]*go*[G]*ing,
Your *[C]*travelling *[G]*days will *[C]*soon be *[F]*o*[G]*ver.
