Irish Eyes lyrics and guitar chords, Words and music by Brian Warfield of The Wolfe Tones, the video is of The Wolfe Tones in Cork 1986 I was at this gig, this was in the height of the success of The Wolfe Tones. The abc music notes are by Cathal Lynch who also features in the youtube video playing mandolin.

My[G] rose of Old[Bm] Erin my[C] Kathleen mo[G] mhuirnín
Your[C] eyes they could light many[Am] mantles of[D] love
For [G]there in your [Bm]eyes is the[C] dew of the [G]morning
You've[C] taken the light[Am] from the[D] sky high above
You've [C]captured the[Bm] blue from the[C] violets[G] empty
You've [C]borrowed your[Em] smile from the[Am] sun in the[D] sky
For[G] you are a rogue[Bm] and your[C] thievings ex[G]tensive
You had[C] stolen my[Am] heart with your[D] true Irish [G]Eyes

[G]Irish eyes were [Bm]smiling
[C]Irish eyes be[G]guiling
[C]Eyes that gleam with [G]love my[Em] dear
Could[c] light the skies a[d]bove
[G]Eyes of heavens [Em]splendour
[D]Eyes so warm and tender
[C]Brighter [D]sparks than [G]all of the[Em] stars
Are those[C] Irish [D]eyes of[G] love

Eyes of heavens splendour
Eyes so warm and tender
Brighter sparks than all of the stars
Are those Irish eyes of love

Of the flowers of the forest there are none to compare to
The flower that has captured my heart in this way
For there in your smile so warm and so tender
You've taken the heart from the flowers in May
You've captured the blue from the bluebells in springtime
You've borrowed your blush from the Rose in the briar
For you are a rogue and your thievings extensive
You had stolen my heart with your true Irish Eyes

Irish eyes were smiling
Irish eyes beguiling
Eyes that gleam with love my dear
Could light the skies above
Eyes of heavens splendour
Eyes so warm and tender
Brighter sparks than all of the stars
Are those Irish eyes of love

Eyes of heavens splendour
Eyes so warm and tender
Brighter sparks than all of the stars
Are those Irish eyes of love

Irish Eyes Are Smiling
The Irish didn't have a lot to smile about
but theirgood humour and friendly nature
carried them through the bad times. There
were no happier people that delighted in
a sing-song or party celibration for all
occations. Even the wake became a joyious
occation, a celibration of the passing
of the soul to a greater happier place.
Everybody wants to go to heaven but
nobody wants to die. Irish eyes was another
number for The Wolfe Tones in the Irish
charts back in the 80s. It is as popular
at today's live shows as ever. It is dedicated
to the Irish all over the world.

The song is tricky at first but it's actually a good workout on the fingers,
with all the sharps and naturals. Not only that, it's a really nice tune!
