Sally Greer Lyrics And Guitar Chords, sometimes called ''Charming Sally Greer'' this one would be more popular in Newfoundland Canada than Ireland as it's a song of migration. The guitar chords are by Marc Fahrbach,Covered beautifully on the "Exiles Return" CD by Karan Casey and John Doyle. No video for this one. Requested by David F.

Intro: D-D-G-D   Bm-(Em-A)-D-D

 

Good (D)people all both (G)old and (D)young, my (Bm)age is (Em)twen(A)ty-(D)three,
My (G)parents turned me (D)from their door un(Bm)to Am(Em)eri(G)cay;
All (G)from that verdant (D)Ireland where (Bm)my first (Em)breath I (G)drew,
They (D)forced me to (G)Ameri(D)cay my (Bm)fortune (Em)to (A)pur(D)sue.

 

The (D)reason why they trans(G)ported (D)me I in(Bm)tend to (Em)let (A)you (D)hear,
'Twas be(G)cause I would not (D)break my vow from the (Bm)girl I (Em)love so (G)dear;
'Twas be(G)cause I would not (D)break my vow from the (Bm)girl I (Em)love so (G)dear,
That (D)girl I love so (G)tenderl(D)y, my (Bm)charming (Em)Sal(A)ly (D)Greer.

 

'Twas on (D)board the Rose of (G)Aber(D)deen from (Bm)Belfast (Em)we (A)bore (D)down,
With (G)eighteen emi(D)grants on board, 'twas to (Bm)Quebec (Em)we were (G)bound;
We were (G)long time on the (D)ocean but no (Bm)danger (Em)did I (G)fear,
For my (D)heart was with the (G)girl I (D)left, my (Bm)charming (Em)Sal(A)ly (D)Greer;

 

When the (D)seas are all in (G)motion (D)they keep (Bm)rolling (Em)to (A)and (D)fro,
Our (G)vessel struck a(D)gainst a rock and in (Bm)pieces (Em)she did (G)go;
And 'twas (G)out of eighteen (D)emigrants only (Bm)fourteen (Em)reached the (G)shore,
And the (D)other four souls to the (G)bottom (D)went and they (Bm)never were (Em)seen (A)no (D)more.

 

Then (D)'twas on the island (G)of St. (D)Paul's for (Bm)twelve days (Em)we (A)did (D)lie,
Our (G)bedding was the (D)cold, cold ground, our (Bm)covering (Em)was the (G)sky;
And our (G)clothes and money we (D)had with us were (Bm)lost on (Em)board the (G)wreck,
We (D)were a sight for (G)to be(D)hold when we (Bm)landed (Em)in (A)Que(D)bec.

 

So (D)now I'm safe in (G)Quebec (D)town, got (Bm)friends and (Em)mon(A)ey (D)there,
But (G)still I long for the (D)land I love and the (Bm)girl who (Em)is so (G)fair;
I'm in (G)hopes to be back in (D)old Ireland be(Bm)fore the (Em)end of the (G)year,
Then (D)I will roll (G)in the (D)arms of my (Bm)charming (Em)Sal(A)ly (D)Greer.
