The Dawning Of The Day Guitar Chords And Lyrics. The youtube video is by John McCormack who made the song famous. The details and background information on The Dawning Of The Day can be found on the Raglan Road page.

[D]One morning early I walked [G]forth
By the[D] margin [G]of Lough[D] Leane
The [G]sunshine dressed the [D]trees in green
And summer[Bm] bloomed a[A]gain
I [G]left the town and[D] wandered on
Through fields all [Bm]green and [A]gay
And [D]whom should I meet but a colleen[G] sweet
At the[D] dawning[G] of the[D] day.

[D]No cap or cloak this maiden[G] wore
Her[D] neck and[G] feet were [D]bare
Down [G]to the grass in [D]ringlets fell
Her glossy[Bm] golden [A]hair
A [G]milking pail was [D]in her hand
She was lovely, [Bm]young and[A] gay
She [D]wore the palm from Venus[G] bright
By the [D]dawning [G]of the [D]day.

[D]On a mossy bank I sat me [G]down
With[D] the maiden [G]by my[D] side
With [G]gentle words I[D] courted her
And asked her to[Bm] be my [A]bride
She[G] said, "Young man don't[D] bring me blame"
And swiftly[Bm] turned a[A]way
And [D]the morning light was shining[G] bright
At the[D] dawning [G]of the[D] day.
