The Three Leafed Shamrock Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords. Also included are the tin whistle notes and the banjo / mandolin tab. Dermot O’Brien version in E major with a capo on the 2nd fret. For the whistle notes use a D. The chords are by Marc and Jean is giving the instructions on how to play the song on the whistle. Recorded by Dermot Hegarty, Daniel O'Donnell and Hugo Duncan, all of which are country singers but I'm not convinced that this is a country song. A country singer will generally use a beat that he's used to. There's no information that I came upon to suggest who wrote this song.

In the (D)dock a (G)ship was (D)anchored 
On a bright St. Patrick's (A)Day 
On the (D)quay a (G)lass was (D)sighing 
For her (A)lover going a(D)way -A

In her (D)hand she (G)held an (D)emblem 
And it's small green leaves were (A)three 
And her (D)parting (G)words were (D)darling 
Look at (A)these and think of (D)me -A

Three leafed (D)shamrock (G)I a(D)dore thee 
Your three leaves I love to (A)see (or long to (A)free)
When there's (D)brighter (G)days in (D)Ireland 
I'll come (A)home and marry (D)thee -A 

Just be(D)fore the (G)ship had (D)started 
As she laid her hand on (A)mine 
Just be(D)fore (G)we had (D)parted 
She looked with (A)loving eyes so (D)kind -A 

To my (D)coat she (G)pinned an (D)emblem 
And it's small green leaves were (A)three 
And her (D)parting (G)words were (D)darling 
Look at (A)these and think of (D)me -A

But to(D)night I (G)am an (D)exile 
Far from home and far from (A)thee 
Next (to) my (D)heart I'll (G)wear your (D)token 
No (A)matter where I (D)be -A 

And al(D)though the (G)seas di(D)vide us 
And your face I might never (A)see 
When there's (D)brighter (G)days in (D)Ireland 
I'll come (A)home and marry (D)thee -A 

Three leafed (D)shamrock (G)I a(D)dore thee 
Your three leaves I love to (A)see (or long to (A)free)
When there's (D)brighter (G)days in (D)Ireland 
I'll come (A)home and marry (D)thee –A-D
