three folk groups who were big,The Dubliners,The Wolfe Tones and The Ludlows.Jim Mc Cann later joined The Ludlows.
Try a capo on 2nd fret,that will put you in the key of D

They[C] say that the lakes of Kil[G]larney are fair,
No[Em] stream like the Liffy can[F] ever com[G]pare,
If it's[C] water you want you'll find[G] nothing more rare,
Than the[Em] stuff they make[F] down by the[G] oce[C]an.
[Chorus]
The[C] sea oh the sea is the[F] gradh geal mo[C] croide,
[G]Long may it[Em] stay between[F] Englend and[G] me,
It's a[C] sure guaran[G]tee that some[C] hour we'el be free,
Thank[G] God we're sur[F]rounded by[G] wa[C]ter.

Tom Moore made his waters meet fame and renown,
A great lover of anything dressed in a crown,
In brandy the bandy old Saxon he'd drown,
Ant throw them all back in the ocean,
[3]
The Scots have their Whisky,the Welsh have their speech,
And their poets are paid about tenpence a week,
Provided no harsh words on England they speak,
Oh Lord what a price for devotion.
[4]
The Danes came to Ireland with nothing to do,
But dream of the plundered old Irish they slew,
'Yeh will in your Vikings said Brian Boru,
And threw them back in the ocean.
[5]
Two forign old monarchs in battle did join,
Each wanting their head on the back of a coin,
If the Irish had sence they'd drowned both in the Boyne,
And partition thrown into the ocean

The Ludlowas started out in 1965 and were-Sean and Paddy Roche with Margaret O'Brien who had just returned from America ,They had a No 1 hit in 1966 with the Dominic Behan song 'The Sea Around Us' and had another top 10 hit with 'The Wind Through The Rafters' .Jim McCann joined the band around the time.Their name comes from a Woddy Guthrie song 'The Ludlow Massacree' unfortunately the band disbanded in 1967 but their music lives on fourty years later , At the time they were one of the top three acts in Ireland along with 'The Wolfe Tones and 'The Dubliners.
