A Burren Love Story
Guitar intro: D-D-G-D   Bm-A-D-D
(D)Raindrops (F#m)cling to the (G)branches, -G
And the (Bm)sun makes them (F#m)diamonds at (G)dawn. -G
And the (D)birds sing a (Bm)song for the (G)whole world to (D)hear -D
And (Bm)nature she (F#m)just carries (G)on -G

Chorus
The (G)winter's re(Em)treating de(F#m)feated by (Bm)spring -Bm
And (G)though how I (F#m)wish I'd no (A)care. -A
But I (D)live in the (F#m)hope you'll re(G)turn cross the (D)sea -D 
To the (Bm)Burren, to (A)me and to (D)Clareah. -D
For (G)is it the (Em)memory of the (F#m)summer I (Bm)taste? -Bm 
Sure you'd (G)think now that (F#m)would be long (A)gone -A 
But it’s (D)sad that I (F#m)wake in the (G)morning a(D)lone  -D
I'm with(Bm)out you in (A)sweet Bally(D)vaughan -D 

Oh the (D)gentians they're (F#m)blooming an (G)ocean of (D)blue -D
And the (Bm)orchid gets (F#m)ready to (G)dance -G 
The (D)fields they're all (Bm)turning them(G)selves into (D)green, -D 
But (Bm)still all my (F#m)thoughts turn to (G)France. -G 

Chorus
Instrumental bagpipe +  guitar bridge: D-D-G-D   Bm-A-D-D (2x)

Oh a (D)fiddler's air it (F#m)brings a (G)tear to my (D)eyes -D 
As the (Bm)pipes tear the (F#m)soul from my (G)breast -G
I can (D)still hear your (Bm)voice cross the (G)ocean so (D)clear -D 
But since you've (Bm)left me my (F#m)soul has known no (G)rest –G

Oh But it’s (D)sad that I (F#m)wake in the (G)morning a(D)lone  (break)
I'm with(Bm)out you in (A)sweet Bally(D)vaughan -D 
Outro: repeat bagpipe brige fading.

Lyrics
Raindrops cling to the branches,
the sun makes them diamonds at dawn.
the birds sing a song for the whole world to hear
and nature she just carries on

the winter's retreating defeated by spring
oh how I wish I'd no care.
I live in the hope you'll return cross the sea
to the Burren, to me and to Clareah,

but is it the memory of the summer I taste?
you'd think now that would be long gone
as I lie in my bed in the morning alone
I'm without you in sweet ballyvaughan

the gentians they're blooming an ocean of blue
as the orchids get ready to dance
the fields they're all turning themselves into green,
but still all my thoughts are on France.

a fiddler's air brings a tear to my eyes
as the pipes tear the soul from my breast
I can still hear your voice o'er the ocean so clear
but since you've left me my soul has known no rest

the winter's retreating defeated by spring
oh how I wish i'd no careI
live in the hope you'll return cross the sea
to the Burren , to me and to Clare
