The Shimma Lyrics And Chords Bakerloo Junction.Here is another classic from Bakerloo Junction , the lads had a No. 1 hit with 'My Lagan Softly Flowing'
Thanks to Noel for sending me this one ,The Shimna is a river that flows through Newcastle Co.Down Ireland.

The Shimna

Chorus. 1st verse

---- G------------D--------------- Em

I've strolled down by the Liffey
------- C------------- Am------------ D D7
I've wandered down by the Foyle
------G ------------------ Bm------------- Em
I've walked with my girl by the Bandon near Cork
--------------A7--------------------------- D D7
And I've fished in the famous Boyne
---- G-------- D ---------- Em
Stood beside my Lagan
------------- C------- G -------------- D D7
Flowing softly down to the sea
----------- C ------- Am----------- D7
But my love is for the Shimna
------------ C---------- D7----------------- GCGD7
As she flows so young and so free


A silver streak on the side of the mountain
Glistening so bright and so clear
The rich purple heather beside her
Moss covers her banks in green
Descends to the valley below her
She never slows down so it seems
From the heights of the famous Mourne Mountains
To the sea now her journey begins

Down through the valley she whispers
History now rushing her by
Under the ancient stone bridges
The hermitage errie and dry
Where young lovers on warm summer evenings
They listen to your sweet gentle tunes
And the trout pool so clear and like crystal
Ripples dance to the light of the moon

No barges no ships on her waters
No factories or cranes to be seen
No chimneys to stand tall above her
To hide the bright sun from her scene
Now quickly her journey is ending
Through Newcastle and down to the sea
Where the grey salty waters embrace her
Farewell my Shima so young and so free
