D-D-C-G

 

I'm a (G)liberty boy that (C)I'll never de(G)ny

And I love the old town I was (D)born in

And (G)I rue the day that I (C)sailed a(G)way

On a grey No(D)vember (C)mor(G)ning

 

Me be(D)loved shed a tear as we (G)stood by the pier


But I (C)told her I (G)had to be (C)go(D)ing


She's my (G)treasure and pearl,
she's my (C)own darling (G)girl


But my wild oats I (D)have to be (C)sow(G)ing -G-G

 

Chorus


I'm (G)sailing home to (C)Dublin's (G)city


To the one that is waiting for (D)me there


(G)Home again to (C)Dublin's (G)city


Oh how I'm (D)longing to (C)be (G)there

 

D-D-C-G

 

I've (G)seen all the sights of this (C)great world’s de(G)lights


And I sailed from Vancouver to (D)Dover


I've (G)hunted the whale and (C)weathered the (G)gale


Now my roving (D)days are all (C)o(G)ver

 

For I (D)miss Moore Street smell and the (G)auld Liffey swell


And the (C)pigeon house (G)lights in the (C)eve(D)ning


And (G)Sandymount strand where we (C)walked hand in (G)hand


And we watched while the (D)mailboat was (C)leav(G)ing -G-G

 

Repeat chorus twice

 

D-D-C-G
